The cheeky Nando’s is practically a British institution, a right of passage one must experience to pass from childhood to early adulthood.
I feel as if #cheekynandos has become quite a serious part of British culture— bh (@bethany_aliceh) May 12, 2015
We’ve all had a cheeky Nando’s (if you haven’t, what the heck were you doing on your Saturday afternoons to recover from a banter-filled night out on the town?), but sadly people from other cultures around the world have been deprived from the experience and thus have no idea what’s going on.
WHAT IS A CHEEKY NANDOS??? IT SOUNDS LIKE A CANDY WH A T??— knot (@religiousegg) May 12, 2015
Most notably, the American public seem seriously baffled by the concept of a cheeky Nando’s with the lads. What does it mean? Why is it so cheeky? It turns out a cheeky Nando’s is pretty hard to define to a foreigner, but people have been doing their best on Tumblr and Twitter to pinpoint exactly what makes a Nando’s so cheeky.
Apparently it’s got something to do with being a “ledge” and riding around in a “bantmobile”?
And a mate called Callum comes into play at some point, apparently?
Hang on – who’s Smithy and what’s a Maccers?
Now that’s cleared up, shall we go for a cheeky Nando’s? Extra cheeky if you’re pretending to drink water but really necking soft drinks, obvs #topbanter.
When you ask for a glass of water so you can get free soft drinks to make the nandos extra cheeky #cheekynandos— More Life (@LowkeyMo_) May 12, 2015
