Nando's Peri Peri - Waugh Chapel Towne Centre - We went to the mock service prior to their Grand Opening. It was a bit confusing when we walked in because we were seated, given menus. Then we have to get up and go order at the register, then you go fill up your drink at the one computerized cola machine and get your other self service items. It took longer to get our cokes then it did to eat because of the line at the coke machine ... The process is just confusing. As far as the food itself, they pretty much only have chicken seasoned portuguese style and you can't go wrong, it is all grilled ... I ordered the garlic lime chicken and a side salad, two others in our party ordered the spicy hot chicken and two sides and another ordered the wrap. It was good, not fabulous and in my opinion the price tag was a bit steep ... Our bill was $75 for 4 people and that did not include any alcohol or desserts.
Tutti Frutti Frozen Yogurt - 8765 Piney Orchard Pkwy, Odenton - I stopped by the second day they opened. Very friendly staff—almost overly friendly. I felt someone was lurking over my shoulder every step I made which made me feel even more guilty for breaking my diet. Their process was confusing too.. You serve yourself the yogurt and then you go to the toppings. One employee put the toppings on for you while four other employees stared. I felt like saying - hold on - aren't you weighing this? Why can't I put on my own toppings? Then this is where it got confusing...should I say I want 3 chocolate chips and 1/2 a sprinkle of fruity pebbles? Perhaps it was because I went right after they opened and they were confused themselves? I am not sure, I just prefer to indulge in my sprinkles privately. LOL. Overall, it was ok. Not fabulous but not lousy ... I tried the chocolate and pistachio and the others in our party got the cookies and cream. Price tag seemed fairly reasonable. Four small cups of yogurt with toppings $11.
Stay tuned for great places to go on New Years Eve with a list of prices!
