Sunderland - Harry David Tabik Review
Having driven almost 5 hours the arrival at Sunderland Nando's was a welcomed relief. There was a bit of a queue to get in but that was all because the grand master was working on getting us a table for 10. Unfortunately this was not possible due to a real communication breakdown and the booth that should've been our was given away. Anyway we split up into groups and began the feast.
I started with a hummus. The normal ice cream scoop of a garlic flavour paste is always a bit of a disappointment but having added the drizzle and mixed it was palatable. There is however no excuse for cold pita bread and this small error set the mood for the rest of the meal. Although the meal was delicious there were small errors that just scored this Nando's down in my opinion.
My main of chicken butterfly, mash and garlic bread was great other than a tepid mash. I had the peritamer as an experiment and although there was loads of it the distinct lack of fire in my belly left me feeling rather disappointed, I must add that this was my fault and the chicken was delightfully cooked and smothered in sauce.
Parking was free if they validated your ticket and the staff were great even if slightly hard to understand for a North West London lad.
The overall experience was excellent and I hope to visit again if I am ever in Sunderland.
