Portuguese Chicken Peri-peri Sauce?

c

Anyone know where to get this garlicky, spicy, Portuguese chicken? If you are familiar with the Nando's chain in England this is the kind of thing I am looking for. If the sauce is that good at a chain and out of the bottle at the supermarket(I found the Nando's sauce at whole foods), I am prepared to be blown away... Thanks

    Not that this helps right now, but they have Nando's in Vancouver, BC if you're ever up there.

          Yeah the chicken and sauce also have their roots in Africa. Any African restaurants that are good?

            ..."Any African restaurants that are good?"

            I'm no expert, but I would divide the continent into 3 (*) culinary divisions: Northern = Eqyptian to Moroccan (Mediterranean); Central (Ethopian to Nigerian and further on out and up the Atlantic coast), & Southern. What's your preference besides peri-peri sauce (Southern)?

            (*) Yes you could keep on dividing it further (& further & ........).

            I have enjoyed the chicken with peri-peri sauce at Springbok. The sides were also nicely spiced (it's not often that you get a green salad PLUS a cabbage dish).
