This Nando's is in a shopping centre in North Sydney which took a few minutes to work out from street level! Once down in the shopping area, the Nando's is easy to spot in the food court.

We've not yet seen a busy Nando's in Australia, but this was particularly empty. By the time we were eating our food, all the staff were lounging around on their phones as there were no new patrons, and only us and one other guy eating!

The food was the highlight of this trip for me, as my tenderloins (hah!) were thoroughly coated in Extra-Hot sauce, to the point where the meal was actually rather challenging spice-wise! The chip portion was also huge, covered in peri-salt, and not presented in one of those little bowls which keeps all the peri on top.

I actually spotted a piece of African art, but otherwise a standard Australian 3/5 for decoration!

Will this be the last Nando's of 2016 or can I sneak another? Only time will tell...
