I was first introduced to Nando’s chicken in Australia, but while in South Africa I learned that not only was it also popular there but that is where it first originated. Portuguese settlers first introduced the pepper chilli spice that Nando’s is famous for to the African Mozambicans and a bunch of Mozambicans brought that spice with them to Johannesburg when a bunch of them moved there to mine for gold.

The first Nando’s restaurant was opened in 1987 and now they operate in 30 countries on 5 continents. If you haven’t been to a Nando’s yet you must get to one asap. Your life will be changed forever.
