Nando’s is an internationally beloved fast food chain that’s not only gained a place in the hearts of travelers, but also in the hearts of celebs, ranging from Kanye West to Gigi Hadid. Now, you can have a little taste of Nando’s without leaving your house, as the South African restaurant chain recently debuted its PERinaise sauce in the United States.
PERinaise is a take on the brand’s famous PERi-PERi sauce; it’s a blend of the original sauce and mayonnaise for dipping, grilling, spreading and mixing, with a unique spicy mayo flavor. Ingredients include African Bird’s Eye chilies, sun-ripened lemons, herbs and spices and cage-free eggs. It comes in original, hot and lemon and herb varieties. All options are gluten-free, kosher and made with no artificial flavors or colors.
You can buy some to try at home via Amazon, or pick up some at a Kroger, Harris Teeter or Safeway grocery store, if you happen to have one of these chains in your neck of the woods.
You can still pick up the regular Nando’s PERi-PERi sauce in stores as well, the same you might enjoy in the restaurant, including mild, medium, hot, extra hot and lemon and herb varieties. PERi-PERi-flavored salt is also available.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Celebrated as a rich, historical and cultural center, Rome attracts scores of visitors every year. However, the capital of Italy isn’t known for its cheap price tag and budget accommodations.

My husband and I arrived to Kenwood Inn & Spa about an hour before check-in time and luckily our room was ready. The front desk attendant asked if we need assistance with our luggage, then escorted us to our room. Along the way, she pointed out the rooms past the lobby where the daily complimentary breakfast is served, as well as complimentary wine tastings. I enjoyed a glass of welcome Champagne as we made our way to the room.
