There’s nothing we love more than food with flavour and people with passion, and this year’s Grillers of the Year competition showed we had plenty of both!

Our Grillers from all over the UK and Ireland went head to head to show off their PERi-PERi skills, with all 368 restaurants competing to get to the final heat. Talk about determination!

Yesterday, we fired-up the grills for our hottest competition yet where our finalists showcased impressive skills, massive determination, and above all a huge passion for PERi-PERi. The quality of food was superb, but there could only be one winner…

With his top-notch technical skills and the tastiest flame-grilled chicken, it was Shih from Nando’s Liverpool ONE who expertly grilled his way through to be crowned this year’s Griller of the Year. Huge congratulations Shih!

But the battle isn’t over yet. Shih will now represent the UK, along with runners up Alex from Cork – Academy Street and John from Camberwell, at the International final in Malaysia. We wish them the best of luck!
