New at Nando's

Nando's in London has added a new item to their menu: "Wings Roulette". Much like in Russian Roulette, you and your friends get a platter of 10 wings, but have no way of knowing which wing has the extra hot peri peri sauce. As those familiar with Nando's know, even the "medium" is pretty spicy, and the "hot" is already close to combustible. Nobody I know has ever tried the "extra hot".

Wings Roulette is not yet on offer here in DC. But the manager at the Dupont Circle branch says that they would be happy customize one upon request. If you'd like to read The Guardian's review of Nando's, including a description of how to play Wings Roulette, click here. If you'd like to see a ridiculous video of how the game is played, go here.

Hahaha!!! They have great marketing ideas! We're watching the 2nd season of Top Chef and really enjoying it. The food and the speed at which they do it is mind-boggling!
We made our own fresh pasta last weekend! Great success (2nd time round) with caper berries, cherry tomatoes, crushed garlic, black olives, fresh basil leaves, Frantoio olive oil, Maldon salt and Madagascan black pepper. Have a look at my facebook page - Roy de Vos - for pics. xxx
