PERi-Mac & Cheese, and warm chocolate puddings are just some of the new dishes Nando’s has just added onto its menu.

Just as the temperatures have plummeted outside, and it begins to look a lot more like Christmas as the days go on, Nando’s has decided to add a handful of new winter-warming dishes to its menu this week, and they’re now available to get stuck right into.

The South African-founded Portuguese-inspired chain is, of course, known for its chicken and legendary spice lineup, but foodies equally love it for its wide range of side dishes and desserts too.

And it’s those accompanying sides that the restaurant’s focussed on this time around.

Arriving on the menu this week, and now available to order at the over 460 Nando’s branches right across the UK, is a couple of new savoury sides – including the brand-new ‘PERi-Mac & Cheese’, which is made up of cheesy macaroni with a crunchy, garlicky, PERi-PERi spiced crumb topping, and the ”Leafy Green Salad’, which is doused in a sweet and herby vinegar dressing with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and topped with toasted PERi-PERi seeds for that little bit of crunch.


For those with a sweet tooth, and looking to warm up on winter nights, there’s the also-new ‘Warm Chocolate Pud’.

This indulgent new dessert is a soft and fluffy sponge with a chocolate fondant centre, and served with vanilla ice cream and a sweet orange curd that’s even got a hint of chilli.


The traditional Portuguese classic ‘Pastel de Nata’ has also made a winter comeback, but this time, with a brand-new “custardy, flaky, buttery” recipe.

Also making a comeback for a limited-time only, after Nando’s fans went wild for it the last time it was here, is the ‘Smoky Churrasco’ spice, which is a Portuguese garlic BBQ spice, and classed as ‘Hot’ on the PERi-ometer.

It’s made with zesty lemon, garlic, and herbs with notes of smoked paprika, tomato, and PERi-PERi.

There’s also the brand-new ‘Garlic Churrasco Burger’ too, which is made up of two flame-grilled chicken thighs, pink pickled onions, mixed salad leaves, and all-new churrasco PERinaise between two slices of garlic bread.

Fancy tucking in and warming up this winter then?
