I’m an American visiting the UK – I tried Nando’s for the first time… here’s why it buries a US fast food chain

  • Uploading a video to TikTok, @kalanighosthunter reviewed his beloved menu

An American man challenged to try food at different British restaurant chains filmed his first experience of a visit to Nando’s.

Uploading a video to his account on TikTok, @kalanighosthunter poked a list of dishes from the popular peri peri chicken journal.

After making his own DIY chicken sandwich on a viewer’s recommendation, Kalani said it ‘buried’ a top fast food chain popular worldwide.

After ordering a butterfly chicken with garlic bread, chips and halloumi, the vlogger builds his own sandwich and places the chicken and halloumi between the pieces of garlic bread.

Kalani, who added extra sauce to the sandwich after his bite, nods in satisfaction before revealing that he thinks it ‘buried KFC’, adding that it was ‘not even in the same ballpark’.

Summarizing his review, Kalani gave his experience at Nando’s an ‘eight out of ten’.

He was highly complimentary of the chicken, which he described as ‘juicy and nicely seasoned, adding that the brand’s signature peri-peri sauce was a ‘nice touch’.

Moving on to the chips, he said they were “a good level of crisp” but scored them slightly less favorably than the chicken, giving the fries a “six and a half” out of ten.

While other users were keen to point Kalani in the direction of other traditional British foods, one noted the lack of a trademark Nando’s sauce on his meal, saying: ‘It needs a layer of perinaise on both garlic breads’.

A second encouraged him to try the Cockney classic of pie and mash, posting: ‘A traditional pie and mash shop is a must.

“You must get booze, not gravy and lots of vinegar and pepper.”

Another wrote: ‘While you’re here you must try our full English breakfast’.

A fourth added: ‘Try Percy Pig sweets and a Colin the Caterpillar cake from Marks & Spencer.’
