Here Comes The Sun-set Burger
To celebrate the launch of the Nando’s Sunset Burger, we stationed ourselves at five restaurants around the UK to host lucky fans and their friends who had won the opportunity to sample the new food before its official launch.
Around the world, there’s a tradition of applauding when the sun goes down, which we find somewhat odd, as it does it every day. However, with the Sunset Burger, we totally agree that it needs a standing ovation. The menu description alone is enough to get your taste buds praying for a preview:
“Two flame-grilled Chicken Thighs topped with melting Cheddar Cheese and smothered in Smoky Red Pepper Chutney. Served with baby spinach in a Bolo do Caco – a soft, sweet roll. It’s big and it’s deliciously messy.”
To make the evenings extra special and capture that Sunset vibe, we brought in a DJ for each restaurant to soundtrack the autumn evening with chilled out summer beats. Fans were encouraged to share their #NandosSunset on social to be in with a chance to win £100 in Nando’s vouchers.
After the event, the Sunset Burger was officially revealed to the media who duly went mad over the news. Some media chose to focus on the loss of the Churrasco Burger although all Nando’s die hards will know that it’s still only a short menu hack away… (Portugeuse roll + chicken thighs + Fino coleslaw + cheddar cheese = Churrasco Burger)
As the Sunset Burger hits the menu it’s worth remembering that the sun never sets on the Nando’s empire – with restaurants from Baltimore to Birmingham to Brisbane, there’s always time for PERi-PERi goodness.
