PLACE: Table 34. I love this Nando's! It's tall, vibey and unpretentious. I love the stunning themed mural on the wall as you walk in, something I've never seen before. The actual clientele was a mixed bag of rejects and weirdoes. There was one man who washed his hands in the communal sink for about 6 minutes. When I tried to grab a quick wash, he acted like nothing was strange, put his hand through his hair and inconspicuously filled his drinks glass up. After I finished my wash, he checked around for other people who could interrupt his cleaning frenzy then just continued to wash hands. He must have had a painful case of perifinger. We were on a table next to a relentless crying baby who clearly wasn't ready for Nando's. There was also a security guard manning the door, which is probably a strong indication that this do's is prone to the occasional chicken stampede where he has to hold the door shut. 8/10

SERVICE: Host: ? I didn't pay but the table server was quick and efficient. We were only in the 'straunt for 19 minutes! I actually don't have the receipt for this trip, I hope Nando's count it in my challenge- 6/10

FOOD: The Nando's in North London is hotter! The was loaded with sauce and I had the hot hiccups after the third bite. The pitta was absolutely beautiful, highly toasted (nearing a mid-brown colour) and rammed with ingredients. The pineapple was massive grilled to the point where it had black grill lines and the cheese had melted into a beautiful food glue- 9/10

COMPANION: Raphael is taking some persuasion to turn the Nando's Challenge into a feature film with me, but I think I may have finally swung him round- 9/10
