It’s a busy time of year so why not let someone else do the cooking? Nando’s on Davie and Howe, home of the legendary, Portuguese flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken, has partnered with me once again to give away a Party Pack!
Nando’s on Davie and Howe
For a limited time (until the end of the month), Nando’s on Davie and Howe is offering a boneless menu. Items include whole butterflied boneless chicken breast with crispy skin, two boneless thighs served with crispy leaf lettuce, tomato and PERinaise on a stone-baked Portuguese roll, the No Bones Platter with a whole butterflied chicken breast, 4 chicken thighs with 2 regular sides and drinks — and more! They have also just launched online ordering.
Nando’s Party Pack Giveaway
A Nando’s Party Pack is perfect for 6 people (for your next game night, family meal, or picnic). The Party Pack includes 2 whole chickens, 3 Nando’s size sides (like PERi-PERi Fries, Macho Peas, Spiced Rice, and more) and garlic bread. Here’s how you can enter to win:
The winner can pick up their gift certificate for a Party Packs (value $64.99) at Nando’s at 828 Davie Street (at Howe) in Downtown Vancouver. I will draw a winner at random from all entries at 12:00pm on Thursday, December 19, 2019.
About Nando’s: Nando’s was hatched in South Africa in 1987 when Fernando Duarte invited his friend Robbie Brozin to a humble Portuguese eatery in the heart of Rosettenville, South Africa to try some mouth-watering PERi-PERi marinated and basted chicken. It wasn’t just the best chicken Robbie had ever tasted; it was love at first bite! The rest, as they say, is history.

Axel, a young graphic artist and musician, dives into his hand drawn universe as he falls in love with the captivating Lei. Together they jet off on a fast-moving quest to retrieve the stolen light from the super villain Vï. In this epic fantasy, graphic art and music intertwine to create the supercharged world of Axel.
The music serves as a narrative thread guiding characters and audiences as they journey with Axel and Lei to discover that true love shines even brighter that the most radiant star. Inspired by the atmosphere of big arena concerts, Axel is a high-energy and exhilarating experience where acrobatic and skating performances are supported by pop music, visual effects, lighting and laser show.
