Nando’s competitor Peri-Peri Original appears to have originated in Europe, with approximately two dozen restaurants in the United Kingdom. Following the opening of its first U.S. location in Alexandria, Va., in 2018, the chain plans to rapidly expand throughout the country, with five locations already open in Maryland and six in Virginia.
An Afro-Portuguese dish, peri-peri is a flame-grilled chicken dish seasoned with peri-peri sauce and available at various degrees of heat. There are also burgers, salads, pitas and wraps, tacos, milkshakes, and more to choose from.
An opening timetable has not been announced.
