Nandosgirl’s Weblog

So now, we focus on something different! My reputation as a foodie has been well developed and (said in an over confident yet self assured tone) very well deserved.

I eat at different restaurants in London and Brussels – I like to cook for friends and I generally like to eat! I like food! More so, I like simple food which is why a restaurant I like to frequent when I can is called Nandos! Its essentially a Portugese chicken restaurant! I love it I love it – Friends in the US tell me everytime they go, colleagues expect me to pick the restaurant when in Cape Town and in London; friends don’t even flinch when I mention it.

Planning a quick to trip to London, I plan to have dinner with an old friend who was around when my initial love began with Nandos – we arrived at the restaurant at 10.30 and were immediately told that there was no chicken. “NO CHICKEN” we repeated, staring at the staff disbelievingly.
No chicken wings but burgers were fine. We were tired and hungry – we would have eaten our own hands if they put peri sauce on it at that time.
It’s a chicken restaurant! What on earth! That was the end of a very long and eventful week!
Enjoy your next meal 😉

By the way – Happy Chinese New Year (Year of Tiger I believe) and also Happy Anna Howard Shaw day to you all

I have had an amazingly odd week and there is not enough time during a kids story time to tell it all – so I will say it as simply as possible!

{February 2, 2010}   Doppelgänger week

For once in my life I have had a productive week so I have been a bit quiet but decided to pipe up during Doppelgänger week as I thought its the perfect opportunity to select my favourite Doppelgänger – its either that or Amy Winehouse and you should know me better than that!

Friends are changing their facebook status to below.

I am participating in Doppelgänger week. Change your profile picture to someone famous (actor, musician, athelete) you have been told you look like.

Here is mine 🙂


Thanks to my little sis!
