North Van Nandos Got Crazy Game. But Downtown Nandos Is All The Same.

Written by Esquire

I first enjoyed Nandos' delicious Portuguese chicken many moons ago in North Vancouver. I always thought they could only be found deep in VGA suburbia. To my surprise I have learned they have various locations across BC, Alberta, and Ontario. More importantly they have recently opened a downtown location at Davie and Howe in Vancouver. My hats off to the fun boys of summer. They sure know how to fill that Davie St. with great eateries. Bin, Lolitas, Stephos, The Pumpjack, the list goes on.  Now I no longer have to ride my bike to Kits for my Portuguese fix. I probably shouldn't be cutting out fitness at this point in the game, but the downtown location enables me to expedite that peri peri sauce to my belly at a much faster rate .

Most Nandos have liquor licenses and patios. Yes, that is indeed a cooler accompanying my meal. The Growers White Grape is quite a refreshing way to wash down the  2 side dish combo. This obscene amount of rice and potatoes  above is known  as The Portuguese Carb Bomb.

Warning: After eating such complex carbohydrates your body will inevitably go into carbo-shock. Very similar to Toxic Shock Syndrome, but without Tampons. I suggest you get to a couch within 20 minutes.

Note: If Swiss Chalet were to have had a Portuguese cousin, I'd like to think Nando would be thy name.
