Behind the scenes at Nando's top secret kitchen

Nando’s has got a new menu, and it's pretty darn cheeky.

The incredibly secretive Nando’s test kitchen - decked out in the latest Nando’s interiors shipped over from South Africa - allowed us a sneak peak of the menu before it hit restaurants a week ago. 

Of course, it smelled amazing.

The signature piece of the new Nando’s menu is the Fino Platter (£23.95 for two people).

Centred on a spatchcock chicken infused with your favourite PERi-PERi spice and a grilled lemon, the mouthwatering plate features another newbie – PERi-PERi butter on the corn, as well as the first new regular side since 2005 – Supergrains. Not to forget the sweet potato wedges, Fino coleslaw and chargrilled veg – what a combo!

Sangria has been given a Nando’s twist with three types of Vinho Spritzers – red, white or rose (£9.95 for a carafe). They were all refreshing but the white, which had mint and lime in it, was the best.

There’s also a new pomegranate sauce, which was meant to be a salad dressing but also tastes great on ice cream. However the sweet new highlight of the menu has to be two new brownies – salted caramel or PERi-PERi (£2.45 each). For us the spicy chocolate PERi-PERi was our favourite. (Yes we tried both.)

Another new addition is the Supergrain Salad.

Oh and before we forget to mention, special guests included Stormzy - who seemed to enjoy himself, despite there being no sign of the #Merky burger.

He didn’t seem too bothered though.
