Additional Comments - This will make you stand out in the competition! Unique aspects? Student discounts? Parking tips?: 

My second Nando's of the trip and this time I managed to find some Nando's virgins to bring along. Suffice to say, they are now all hooked.

Long Street - Lower turned out to be a nicer branch than Long Street - Upper, with better decoration, and slightly easier street parking. That said, I still didn't feel the food was to the same standards I experienced on my previous trip. The wrap was decent, but composition seemed a bit lazy.

The rest of my party were all very happy though, with widespread reports of exceptionally tender chicken on the bone. One even tried the new 'Tangy Tomato' sauce, which seems to have replaced the 'Mediterranean' flavour. The sauce assures the selector that it will be tangy, but not at all spicy. Perhaps we could do with a sauce like that in the UK, since sometimes it can be hard to sell the Nando's concept to those who find even Lemon & Herb too spicy.
