Chicken and Mocktails at Nandos

On my last night in SG, I decided to splurge a bit on my dinner and dine at Nandos. The first time I heard of Nandos was through my daughter who kept on raving about it when she dined with her cousins in Chicago. The restaurant has many branches all over the world and specializes in Portugese-style chicken dishes and is famous for their peri-peri sauce which you can also buy separately.


So after a tiring last minute trip to Bugis, I spied Nandos and decided to have my dinner there. I know I've been eating a lot of chicken since I arrived in SG but Nandos is all about chicken.

Btw, Nandos hails from South Africa before it expanded to some key cities around the world. It has a casual-dining ambiance and great venue for family dinners or catching-up with friends.


I got myself a quarter chicken + 1 side dish (Mediterranean rice), SGD 12.90. The food portion may seem small because it was served on a big plate, and the rice serving can actually be shared. As for the chicken, it was juicy and very flavorful even without the famous per-peri sauce. I didn't add any sauce, btw. I forgot about the sauce because I was just so tired from exploring SG the whole day and I just want to have a nice dinner before I head to the airport.


I chose Cheeky Cherry, SGD 4.90, to pair with my meal which proved to be perfect. The drink was refreshing enough to wake up the senses and made me ready for shopping again. Haha, just kidding!

Overall, it was a very filling meal albeit expensive if you compute the forex between SG and PH. But it was really delicious and memorable. So, would I dine at Nandos again if ever I happen to visit SG again? Let's wait and see. ;)

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
