First and foremost, I want to congratulate Nando's Chickenland Malaysia Sdn Bhd for their second outlet in Kuching, first being at VivaCity Shopping Mall and now their second at THe Spring Shopping Mall.
It is proven that Kuchingites are big fans of Nando's Peri Peri chicken and I have one living proof with me, which is my husband. So when we got the chance to try out their latest products as well as a small meet up at their second outlet on Monday (17th Oct), he was more thrilled than me.
Their interior is bigger than their first outlet, more spacious definitely and their interior design, in my opinion is minimalist yet sophisticated. In addition, the restaurant is extended out and they have the alfresco feel dining experience with the glass roof and expose glass wall. Not advisable to sit at during the day but I'm sure it'll look cosy at night.
They maintained the brick walls - saves paint and it gives you the hipster feeling.
Their new product - Red Skin Mashed Potatoes and Sweet Potato fries.
Me and the husband loves Nando's but could not go often as we have to feed Xavier as well. When we go to Nando's we only feed Xavier the Mediterranean rice as it is the only dish that is not spicy and he don't take chicken/burger much so we can't order from the kids menu.
However, with their latest addition I'm sure we will visit Nando's more often now. The Red Skin Mashed Potato is not dry, yet not wet. There's this flavour to it mixed with pepper, herbs and the skin of the potato. ANNNDD my new favourite Sweet Potato fries. If I can give hearts to it, it'll be infinity. Previously they only served Peri Peri chips and wedges so this sweet potato fries gives a new refreshing outlook to Nando's in Malaysia. & it's irrestibly tasty.
Closer take of the red skin mashed potatoes.
We were fed with endless potatoes before our main course - one whole chicken, 4 different flavour. So we were basically well fed before even getting to the chicken.
Not to forget their latest addition into their vegetable option - spinach.
Spinach is quite common in Malaysia as a dish, you can find it in belacan, normal fried and even in the local noodles and rice.
The new dishes actually originates from Nando's mainland - South Africa and recently introduced into Malaysia's Nando's outlet.
I'm not a big fan of spinach so I cannot comment much. But I did try, the condiments tastes were kept to a minimal and the spinach taste came out stronger. It's soft and it literally melts in your mouth, that's how soft it is. Despite all that, I didn't touch it much cause me and vege just don't work well.
Food served to us that afternoon. Also includes the Peri Peri Wedges.
After the food tasting, asked the Nando's Malaysia HQ Marketing Director why the chicken wasn't as spicy as we remembered it to be. Well here's a fun fact I want to share with y'all. I learnt from her that the taste varies with the Peri Peri season harvest. Certain harvest will be less spicy while others will be tantalising, mouth burning spicy.
BTW, for those who have yet to know, Peri Peri is also known as African's Bird Eye chilli which is this really tiny yet the spiciest of all chilli. And all Peri Peri of Nando's is imported from South Africa.
Whenever I visit Nando's, my go to sauce is always mild. To be honest, my favourite Nando's flavour is the sweet sauce but they don't put it out, so my next is Mild. Meanwhile, the Husband's favourite is the Garlic sauce. Each time we dine in, he'd be like "Help me get garlic sauce. Thanks".
But of course, what's dining without dessert right?
Caramel Cheesecake. Dammmmnn if I get to eat this everyday, I prolly gained 10 Kgs by the next month. The cheese is rich in both flavours and content. And the caremel is like any other - sweet. This is enough to satisfy those sweet tooth. Even Xavier loves this, he rather eat it all albeit his big belly.
Satisfied with love.
