Nando’s chicken: For Beyonce and her touring entourage, the hungry group couldn’t get enough of the original South African chicken dishes. Beyonce ended up shelling out close to $2,300 to feed her starving staff while visiting a Nando's restaurant in Chelmsford, England, reports Yahoo! Finance on Aug. 20.
The 31-year-old singer dropped $2,261 to be exact, shelling out big bucks for 58 wing platters, 48 whole chickens, 12 veggie burgers, 24 orders of coleslaw and 24 rice dishes, according to a receipt obtained by The Daily Mail.
Beyonce’s visit to the restaurant created some buzz among the staff and customers, although the singer, who had just performed at the V Festival in Hylands Park, did not actually pick up the food herself.
One Nando's employee tweeted, "Too excited that Beyonce is ordering a Nando's from us if only she would pick it up herself!"
Two other employees working the grill took a picture of themselves and shared in on Twitter with a caption that read: “@NandosUk cooking @Beyonce wings while she's at @VFestival.”
A spokesman for Nando's had a different viewpoint and said “We never discuss the identity of our customers for reasons of privacy.”
Too late for that. Celebrities doing the most mundane things makes for top news, and Beyonce’s takeout chicken order is just another example.
