Apologies for being AWOL again, trying to Blog while Travelling is a bit challenging, especially when You return back HOME, after almost 2 months away. I am currently enjoying being back in South Africa, with a few more days left before I head back to Bahrain. The weather in Johannesburg, and even Durban (when I was down there last week), has been amazing!!!!.
Back in Bahrain, we are fortunate to have an array of Restaurant options, different types of Cuisine , but most specifically all are Halaal Certified Restaurants ??. While discovering what Bahrain has to offer, I was so thrilled to Discover our Local SA Nando’s franchise in Seef Mall there.? Taste of Home?
For those not familiar with Nando’s, it is a Flame-Grilled Chicken restaurant , now found Worldwide. With a Mozambican/Portuguese theme, the main ingredient in their chicken dishes being their famous Nando’s Peri-Peri sauces?, A must try if you have a Nando’s near you!
So today allow me to share with you, My Version of my Favourite Dish from Nando’s, Their Pita Meals?. Pardon the poor Photo quality in this post, as I’m using Photos off my cellular phone.
Happy ‘FLAME GRILLING”
