The most underrated wings in D.C. continued to get love from high-profile out-of-towners last year: Nando’s Peri-Peri in Chinatown fielded orders from Nicki Minaj and Justin Bieber in 2012, bringing the chain’s celebrity customer count to four. (Rihanna and One Direction have both patronized Nando’s while in town in the past.) Of Nando’s roster of stars, Minaj reigns supreme as wing champion: Her entourage ordered a whopping 165 chicken wings in November. The Biebs? A modest 20.
