You Can’t Spell Nando’s Without 1D

Nando’s Peri-Peri, the most popular restaurant with the most popular boy band on the planet, will serve up special One Direction menus at seven U.S. locations starting tomorrow. The menus, featuring the band members’ five favorite PERi-PERi chicken meals, are timed to celebrate the release of One Direction’s new movie, “This is Us.”
 
The 1D meals include The Harry (a chicken-breast wrap basted with mango-lime PERi-PERi sauce and topped with pineapple) and The Louis (a half chicken basted with medium PERi-PERi sauce and a side of garlic-buttered, red-skin mashed potatoes). The unique dishes mirror the meals One Direction ordered before a sold-out concert in April in England, as chronicled by the Daily Mirror. 
 
Nando’s BFFs Harry, Liam, Louis, Niall and Zayn frequently profess their love of Nando’s during 1D concerts, and the Afro-Portuguese restaurant has become a favorite with their millions of fans, known as Directioners. 
 
The One Direction menus will be available for a limited time only at seven Nando’s in close proximity to local movie theaters. They include the Nando’s in Chinatown in Washington, DC; five locations in Maryland including Silver Spring, Gaithersburg, Bethesda, Annapolis and Arundel Mills; and the Nando’s in Woodbridge, Va.
