5 April 2012, Singapore – If you love chicken and haven’t been to Nando’s, here’s a good reason to pay them a visit soon. The South African chain has already opened 5 restaurants in Singapore since 2010, serving their famous flame-grilled Peri-Peri chicken to countless groups of satisfied guests. And now, they have improved their Cataplana Orginale with a new spice rice recipe, and added a brand-new Cataplana Porta, with generous toppings of mushrooms and olives.

The Cataplana Originale is a traditional Portuguese dish with perfectly flame-grilled Peri-Peri chicken thighs, simmered with fresh strips of bell peppers, tossed with courgettes, onions and ripe tomatoes, served on a bed of spice rice, in a traditionally Portuguese copper shell-like cookware. If you are a mushroom lover,  the Cataplana Porta is a must-try.  Both are priced at s$19.90 each.

A Nando’s meal is not complete without a dash of Nando’s ever famous South African Peri-Peri sauces. All 4 flavors – Lemon & Herb, Mild, Hot or Extra Hot – are available on your table, so you get to sample the different tastes and level of spiciness, of these signature Peri-Peri sauces.

To complement your Cataplana, Nando’s has specially formulated a new drink – a pink Rosa Fresca. For just $4.90, this flavorful concoction of pomegranate, mint syrup, lime juice and Sprite will quench your thirst and refresh your palate. If you’re not into pink, there’s an extensive choice of other unique mixtures to suit your taste.

From now till 31 July 2012, Nando’s is also giving you a free Cataplana with every 5 Nando’s chicken meals consumed.
