A fiery deal not to be missed
Singapore, 24 August 2022 – Mealtime will now look and taste so much better thanks to bigger and hotter bottomless offerings at Nando’s Singapore. The award-winning fast-casual chain from South Africa will also be turning up the heat with a brand new spice level topping their PERi-ometer scale for anyone game for the challenge. Starting from 5 September onwards, Nando’s will be taking its bottomless deal to the next level with free-flow chips or rice on top of their usual free-flow drinks, sauces and frozen yogurt alongside their flame-grilled chicken – no questions asked!
“At Nando’s, it’s the people that make the chicken – our staff, our partners, our fans. So we thought, how else can we make their dining experience even more memorable than before? We decided to treat our fans to bottomless chips and rice, a testament to how we’re always thinking of new ways to give them a wonderful dining experience. Whether you’re feeling mild or wild that day, who can say no to value-for-money deals?” said Mac Chung Lynn, Group CEO of Nando’s Singapore.
UP-ing the HEAT stakes
Known for their Afro-Portuguese flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken, Nando’s offers varying degrees of heat across five unique PERi-PERi flavours - Extra Hot, Hot, Mild, Lemon & Herb and Plain…ish. With a burning passion for delivering only the best flavours to every customer, Nando’s has introduced their limited-time offering Vusa XXHot flavour – taking the top spot on their iconic PERi-ometer scale.
For anyone up for the challenge, the new Vusa XXHot, available while stocks lasts, is the fiercest PERi-PERi flavour yet. Packed with fire and excitement, and an age-old recipe of African Bird's Eye Chilli, lemon and garlic. Imagine African spirit, intense heat and a dark, fiery red sauce with chilli seeds coating the chicken - measuring approximately 175,000 Scoville heat units for a guaranteed oomph!

In Hot Pursuit Towards Quality & Sustainability Committed to quality at every step, Nando’s serves up only the freshest A-grade chickens using healthier cooking methods without compromising on flavour. The flame-grilled method is tedious, yet key to Nando’s delicious chicken, and simply shows their commitment to transparency as diners can be sure their meals are freshly made with no added MSG or additives and made with 100% natural ingredients. The chickens are marinated for at least 24 hours in a special PERi-PERi marinade, so the flavour goes right to the bone. Each Nando’s restaurant which is intimately referred to as 'casa’, has an open kitchen where customers can excite their taste buds with the visual pleasure of watching each piece of chicken meticulously grilled to perfection by Nando’s master grillers.
In addition to the strict standards they pride themselves on, Nando’s also grows their own African Bird’s Eye Chilli straight from the source in Southern Africa. These chillies are essentially what Nando’s signature PERi-PERi sauces are made of – it has a citrus note with a tease of heat and hint of earthiness, which is then blended with fresh lemon, garlic, onion, oil and herbs.
To pledge their commitment and empower small-scale Southern African farmers, Nando’s saw the opportunity to give them an additional income source at the same time providing customers with the most authentic and delicious flavours. The chillies are grown on farms with nutrient-rich soil, spanning 494 acres and are handpicked and dried naturally under the Southern African sun, which are then bought at a pre-agreed, fair trade price.
