Inspired by the magical combination of Africa’s vibrant colours, unique heritage and the smoky flavor of open-fire cooking, the super-natural Smoky PERi-PERi was born. It delivers a full-bodied, rich flavor with sweet, smoky paprika a hint of zesty lime, a delightful medley of herbs and of course a touch of Nando’s trademark African Birds Eye Chili. All this combined gives it a unique smoky flavor reminiscent of a good barbecue. 

With blogger friends

On the Nando’s PERi-ometer, Smoky PERi-PERi is slightly hotter than lemon & Herb (which also contains the magical chilli incidentally) but milder that its Mild flavor. It’s perfect for those who like their food on the flavourful but not-too-hot side and brings a whole new dimension to the Nando’s chicken flavor range. 

With blogger friends

“We wanted to give our fans a taste of something magical this season with our flamed-grilled PERi-PERi chicken and that is how Smoky PERi-PERi came to be. Over the years we have dabbled in different recipes to find that special taste that will give our fans something new that they can enjoy and we decided to try it out with Smoky PERi-PERi. It delivers a fantastic combination of flavours that is exciting and uniquely Nando’s yet familiar at the same time.” commented Stephen Chew, CO of Nando’s Malaysia.

Experience the new, enchanting Smoky PERi-PERi on everything that you can before it disappears. The best way would be to celebrate the festive season with the Smoky PERi-PERi platter for 4 only RM99.00.
