Nando’s is known worldwide for its succulent PERi-PERi chicken, marinated for 24 hours, flame-grilled to perfection, and basted to the customer’s preferred flavor and spice. It’s equally renowned for its spicy PERi-PERi, the Bird’s Eye chili pepper that indigenous Africans introduced to the Portuguese centuries ago. Nando’s PERi-PERi made its U.S. debut in 2008 and now operates 43 restaurants in and around Maryland, Virginia, Washington, DC, and Chicago.
