Opening: Nando's Peri Peri Restaurant Opens Today in Silver Spring

Q: What is Peri-Peri?
A: The word “Peri-Peri” is the Portuguese name for the Bird's Eye Chilli, which was discovered in Southern Africa and later introduced to the Portuguese settlers. The settlers quickly fell in love with the flavor and its enormously positive effect on the libido, and began experimenting with the Peri-Peri spice in a variety of exotic dishes, including chicken. By blending the spice with other natural ingredients - like herbs, spices, lemons and vinegar - they created their own secret blends of Peri-Peri which was passed down through generations. Today, Nando’s Peri-Peri restaurant makes Peri-Peri the same way the Portuguese explorers did in the 14th century.

Q: What will the menu be like? 
A: Nando’s Peri-Peri prides themselves on legendary Afro-Portuguese Flame-Grilled Chicken. Always fresh, never frozen, A-grade chickens are butterfly-cut and marinated in a top-secret Nando’s marinade for a full 24 hours to ensure an explosive flavor. The legendary Peri-Peri chicken is flame-grilled right in front of you and basted thoroughly with your choice of sauce in four different heat levels: Lemon and Herb for beginners and sensitive palates, medium, hot and extra hot for chili enthusiasts.  Nando’s Peri-Peri also offers a kid-friendly sweet and tangy sauce. 

Q: What is the history of Nando's Peri Peri? 
A: Robert Brozin and his good friend Fernando Duarte, opened the very first Nando’s Peri-Peri restaurant in 1987, in small suburb of Johannesburg, South Africa. Since then, Nando’s Peri-Peri has been thrilling taste buds with its signature flame-grilled chicken across the globe, with locations in England, Ireland, Australia, Malaysia, Canada, the Middle East, and now in the United States. There are currently over 850 Nando’s Peri-Peri restaurants in 34 countries.
