How was the sweet potato mash?

BuzzFeed/Ryan Broderick

Verdict: It's pretty great. It's like your typical mashed sweet potato dish. Nothing crazy spectacular but definitely not gross and it goes really well with the chicken.

How were the macho peas?

BuzzFeed/Ryan Broderick

Verdict: They were really interesting. Not the usual thing you think of when you think fast food chicken joint. Nevertheless, they were definitely not gross.

How was the chicken?

BuzzFeed/Ryan Broderick

Verdict: So it's grilled chicken, not fried. And it definitely makes KFC look like garbage. The chicken roulette is a 10-piece bag of mild and spicy wings mixed together, so you don't really know what you're going to bite into. That being said, none of them were very hot.

Which is where Peri-Peri sauce comes in.

Verdict: Nando's Peri-Peri sauce is awesome. The extra hot bottle really isn't that spicy compared to American hot sauces. It's probably a little spicier than Frank's Red Hot, except it's a lot better.

In conclusion, Nando's is definitely as good England thinks it is.

I mean, it's just chicken, how different could it be, right? Nando's makes just really quality chicken wings. It's hell of a lot better than what you'd get at KFC and it's a lot classier than a Buffalo Wild Wings.

As of right now, there are a handful in America, but only in the Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia area. If you come across one, definitely give it a shot.
