Comments - Stand out in our monthly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

A rainy (and unseasonably cold) September evening in Southend, and having just landed from Majorca at the local airport, we needed some spice to help us feel better about the return to reality.

The Nandos' is on a high street, and parking was easy to find outside on a Sunday evening. I'm guessing it would be more difficult during the day though, since it all looked like pay and display.

We were sat down straight away and there was no queue to order. Just like in Basildon the other night, the food came out piping hot within 5 minutes! In fact, this was some of the best Nando's food I have had in a long time, and I have had to award a rare 5/5 in this category. The butterfly breast, while not the largest specimen I've ever experienced, was wonderfully tender and covered in sauce. The chips were piping hot and nicely tossed in peri-spice.

Overall a great trip to Nando's, and it made the return to the UK from sunny Spain a bit more bearable!

Would return.
