That’s just the way things are these days and love it or hate it, it’s just one of those things that you’ll have to get used to.
Or maybe not, since you may be able to forego the Spoons breakfast soon…
I say that like a Spoons breakfast is a bad thing; you and I both know that it’s not, but for the sake of variety, it’s nice to throw another option in.
Basically Nando’s have a breakfast menu now and while it isn’t as accessible as you may have hoped, it soon may be. For a Nando’s sceptic such as myself, I was obviously dubious about the offerings, but they actually do sound quite lovely.
You can have a very unbreakfast-y PERi-PERi 1/2 chicken or a chicken burger served in a Portuguese roll with side salad to start you off for the day, if you like. Failing that, also on the menu are breakfast rolls – sausage, sausage and egg, or halloumi, tomato and avocado. Naturally you get to choose just how hot you’d like all of these. The prices range from £4.80 to £5.80, and you can add a side of toast of corny browns for £2.50.
I’ll be honest. I don’t know what a corny brown is.
No time to look it up though, since corny browns come in Nando’s take on a full-English breakfast, with chicken sausage, fried or scrambled eggs, spicy beans, a grilled tomato and a portobello mushroom. Just under £10 for that one.
If you’re classier than that, you can get the Nando’s-style Eggs Benedict, which is basically like a normal Eggs Benedict, except the ham has been replaced with chicken and the hollandaise is PERI-infused. Just under £9.
They also have spiced buttermilk pancakes, if that’s more your tempo. You can get yours topped with blueberries, banana and maple syrup for just under £7, or you can opt for spiced maple French toast for the same price.
On top of those, Nando’s also offer the typical restaurant breakfasts, like granola, porridge and toast.
Now for the bad news though, since this is only available at two Nando’s restaurants, both weirdly close to each other. One of them is as the Cobham services on the M25, just outside of London in Surrey, and the other is in London Gatwick airport, which isn’t in London, but actually West Sussex.
The reviews are pretty good…
There’s more tweets, they’re just largely too sweary and such.
You may be upset that you can only get a Nando’s breakfast in two of their restaurants, but with all of the good press they’re getting, it’s hard to imagine things will stay that way.
