Catch the COCO-CATAPLANA at NANDO’S now!

Have you tried Nando’s latest offering called Coco-Cataplana? Just introduced recently, Coco-Cataplana is curated specially for us Malaysians as it is only available here in our tanahair and nowhere else in the world!

So what is this strange-sounding dish? It’s Nando’s famous flame-grilled PERi-PERi Chicken, a quarter chicken slathered in a unique Coconut & PERi-PERi mix, served on a bed of mediterranean rice with a special Cataplana sauce, grilled vegetables, lime and coriander garnish. Oh, you can also have your favourite Nando’s sauce (Lemon & Herb, Mango & Lime, Mild, Hot & Extra Hot) drizzled on top.

A serving of Coco-Cataplana is only RM29.90 and I can tell you it’s really very filling and satisfying. Personally I find the Mango & Lime sauce goes extremely well with the “lemak” spicy flavours as the tangy nuances balance out the richness. It’s one happy mix of South Africa, Portuguese and Malaysian essence in a pretty harmonious blend.

Ever tried this?

The Coco-Cataplana is available for dine-in in all Nando’s restaurants throughout the country – go catch some now!

The best drink to go with Coco-Cataplana is the Citrus Iced Tea. Yes, that has just become my favourite drink in Nando’s! I truly dig this thirst-quencher bursting with zesty flavours – it’s elderflower infused with lemon tea and Sprite!

Have you ever tried the desserts at Nando’s? I think most people are always too stuffed with their mains for any sweets but there are actually some pretty good desserts there. I tried two – the Caramel Cheesecake and PERi-PERi Brownie and I really liked them!

Scrumptious Caramel Cheesecake!

The rich and creamy caramel slathering the muscovado sugar cheesecake was really good, not overly sweet at all and with all the right aromas.


The 2 pieces of brownie looked ordinary but actually made more interesting with some chilli flakes and infused with PERi-PERi sauce!
