KUALA LUMPUR, 26 May 2022 – Nando’s Malaysia is releasing an all-new limited-edition flavour, which is the fiercest flavour yet. Friends, say hello to the Vusa XXHot flavour, which is on the highest level of Nando’s PERi-ometer that you all know and love. Yes, it’s above Extra Hot and, yes, it’s a new world of flavour and heat! From now until 4 September 2022, daredevils who’re looking to challenge themselves can enjoy the new Vusa XXHot Flavour in all your favourite ways of enjoying Nando’s.
Since 1998, Malaysians have grown to love Nando’s for its delicious and fiery PERi-PERi chicken, and also for the fun, warm, colourful and multicultural vibe inspired by our South African roots. Likewise, Nando’s too shares the love with our fans in Malaysia by continuously improving the dining experiences at Nando’s restaurants and innovating the much-loved recipes. That’s why limited-edition flavours or meals are regularly introduced (and sometimes kept permanently!) on the menu. In May 2022, Nando’s Malaysia unleashed its fiercest flavour yet – the Vusa XXHot. It’s flavourful, it’s spicy, and it’ll challenge even the bravest of diners!
In the Zulu language, Vusa means “excitement and fire”; so Nando’s fans will be in for an eternity of both when they try this new flavour. Vusa XXHot is made using an age-old recipe featuring a combination of African Bird’s Eye Chilli, lemon and garlic. (That’s it, we promise. No actual magma was added in!) You’ll experience intense heat, intense flavour, and the South African spirit, all in one bite.
“We’re very proud and delighted that all Malaysians love the flavourful chicken of Nando’s. Whether it’s Lemon & Herb or Extra Hot, or something in between, there’s always a delicious meal for everybody at their favourite Nando’s restaurant. This time around, we thought we’d fire it up with the Vusa XXHot, our fiercest flavour yet. We know that Malaysians love delicious spicy meals, and we believe that this limited-edition flavour will deliver plenty of spice, flavour and heat. All I’ll say to our fans – Be prepared to have your socks blown off!” said Chai Hui Fung, Chief Commercial Officer, Nando’s Malaysia.
Feeling the heat already? Put your tongue to the test with the Vusa XXHot Meal, featuring a ¼ chicken, two sides and one bottomless drink for only RM27.90. For those who order the Vusa XXHot Meal, you’ll get to enjoy the Bottomless Frozen Yogurt at only RM2.90! (At selected Nando’s restaurants only.) It’s the most delicious way to extinguish any fire.
