    If you enjoy Nando's peri-peri chicken, then you're quite likely to be pleased by Malisa Flame Grilled Chicken's variant. Though it may not be as spicy as Nando's hottest peri-peri sauce, it still does provide the beautifully grilled chicken with enough flavour and punch. The grilled chicken is also moist and tender on the inside, while the skin has a nice char to it, giving it that smoky flavour.

    UpperstarPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Upperstar is a great place to have a simple yet scrumptious plate of grilled chicken. It's not in any way fancy whatsoever, but what served on the plate is done quite nicely - with a bit of love. The grilled chicken is incredibly tender and served alongside some fries and a douse over with their homemade black pepper sauce. It may look like a mess from far, but no doubt, it is absolutely delicious.
