Bunny Chow?

mrbitterpants Apr 11, 2011 12:08 PM

There used to be a Portugese chicken place in Park Royal South (before the food court moved) that served something called a Bunny Chow. It was a peri-peri marinated chicken breast topped with cheese and french fries served on a portugese bun with peri-mayo.

Anybody know where this restaurant moved to or if there's something similar in the GVRD?

    Sounds sort of like these guys: http://www.nandoscanada.com/sections....
    They have numerous locations around town and if you follow the link to their menus they don't list the Bunny Chow but the elements are all there to make one.

      Unfortunately not Nando's (plus I've never enjoyed their chicken). I think it was a family run operation.

        There's a place in the Tinseltown food court-right next to the Sri Lankan Dosa place-that advertises Bunny Chow.

        I haven't actually see them serve any to anyone though they seem to be trying to get the business off the ground by microwaving whatever to sell to the masses.

          Bunny chow is also a hollowed out white bread loaf stuffed with curry in South Africa. Quite popular in Durban when we were there. It was originally served to the white folk in South Africa by the Indians who didn't know what to feed them ...or so I'm told. It's basically white bread stuffed with any meat curry. Not sure about the Portuguese one though.
