Nandos! The new fast food restaurant, and guess what? There’s more gluten free on the menu than at any other fast food place and its better food.
It’s like I always say; you win some you lose some and we definitely won this one 😀
Okay so lets get down to brass tacks. Although you can’t have any of the burgers or wraps etc like usual, there is so much more you can have.
I went with my parents and thanks to the platters we can all share, which is rare for us with my allergy, so it’s a great place for us. We started with the peri peri nuts. You can’t choose the spice, so if your not into spicy food don’t get these, although they aren’t too bad. It’s a mix of nuts with a lovely peri peri spice. Tasty and small for a starter.
Next we had what we always have, a platter of one chicken, chips and coleslaw. It was wonderful as it always is.
I usually have the leg of a chicken when I have chicken because I don’t like the white meat and always find it a bit dry. The chicken I had was moist and soft, the peri peri spice was medium and it wasn’t too hot or overpowering and have the chicken a lovely flavour. Both the chips and coleslaw are gluten free which is a bonus. The chips are proper chips, none of the McDonalds stuff but really ones. The coleslaw was a real one too not processed at all.
The only problem I have with it, is it only has ice cream or frozen yoghurt as a gluten free dessert which is a bit of a let down.
But all in all, I would definitely recommend this restaurant to any coeliac that wants cheap, fast, good food. Especially considering the chips are gluten free which is something we miss out on a lot in restaurants and something I’m always happy to have.
Leave a comment and let me know if you know of any other good places to go.
Life’s too short to eat bad food!
