The Year of the Tiger festivities roar into action from February 1 – and one Asian restaurant in Bristol is celebrating in true Chinese New Year style, with an impressive giveaway. Woky Ko, who opened up a new lunch bar last year, will be running a giveaway which involves placing a ‘Woky Dollar’ in 1,000 of its signature pink delivery bags during the first week of February to allow customers a chance of winning a tasty prize.
Traditional Chinese New Year celebrations are centred around the themes of generosity, community and sharing wealth with loved ones, and Woky Ko is embodying the true spirit of the celebrations with this giveaway for orders placed on the restaurant’s website between February 1 & 7. The 1,000 lucky customers who find a Woky Dollar, worth either £50 (enough for a real feast!), £10 or £5, with their takeaway can redeem it for click and collect orders from Woky’s Cargo at Wapping Wharf and Queens Road in the evening – and also in-store at Woky’s Lunch Bar on Queens Road.
Owner and chef, Larkin Cen, said: “For us, it’s all about giving back to the community and thanking them for their continuous and giant support over the last few years. One of my favourite memories around Chinese New Year was going to Hong Kong with my family when I was a child.
“The entire community comes together to celebrate and it’s such an amazing thing to see. Family and community really are at the heart of everything we do and we want to give back to Bristol and have them join in our New Year celebrations, even if it’s simply by taking the time to sit and enjoy our food together.”
To get their hands on a Woky dollar, customers should place an online order during the first week of February and cross their fingers. During this time, those ordering delivery and click and collect should keep their eyes out for a red Chinese New Year envelope arriving inside their iconic pink takeaway bag – inside which they will find either £50, £10 or £5 to redeem online for click and collect or in-store until March 31.
