I was invited to my friend’s birthday dinner. While organizing the dinner, her friends talked about gifts in Facebook event page, and we decided to bring a birthday cake as a part of it. Her husband requested some light dessert, so I suggested Pavlova. Pavlova is a meringue dessert.

The idea was agreed. Pavlova from Sweet Carrie’s Dessert Shop in North Vancouver is quite famous. It is a bakery store in Lonsdale Quay Market and sells other bakery stuff as well. When my office was close to Lonsdale Quay, we used to buy this Pavlova for staff’s birthday.

The guy on the phone, who has Asian accent was a funny person due to the listening skill between him and me. I enjoyed the conversation with him pretty much. 🙂

In early November, it was a clear autumn day. It seemed cold outside, but there was no reason not to go hiking. I went to Quarry Rock in Deep Cove, because I was ready to leave in the afternoon. Skipping lunch, I had some energy bar at the top of the rock, and when I came down, I was starving.

I quickly ran into Honey Doughnuts & Goodies. It was packed by people, maybe because it was off-season and not many places were open till the late afternoon, and also the temperature dropped dramatically and it was super cold. The famous honey doughnuts were out-of-order, and people were waiting for 15 min or more to have doughnuts ready.

I ordered from the homemade soup.

The hot homemade soup made my body warm up, and the bread helped my stomach filling. Besides, the soup was tasty and enough amount as snack.

As I mentioned in the previous post, I went to Friday Night Market in North Vancouver on the second week of Friday in October. That day was probably the last day for that event.

I got some food at the other food truck, but of course, it wasn’t enough for dinner. The second food truck I chose was Vij’s Railway Express. The restaurant of his is well-known in Vancouver, but I have never been, so it was a great opportunity to try out their food. They serve Indian and/or Pakistani food.

I asked each of size and ordered two things.

Butter Chicken Schnitzel
(Panko Crusted Free Range Chicken, topped with a rich Tomato and Fenugreek cream Curry, served with cumin-infused Basmati and Nann)

As I worried, the curry was really spicy for me, but it tasted so good! Schnitzel was tender, and when I ate altogether, I felt the curry’s spiciness was getting mild. 🙂

Lamb Kebab
(Lucknow Lamb Kebab, wrapped in Nann with Basmati Onions, Pea Shoots, and Mint-Mango Chutney, served with Side Rice Puff and Chickpea Salad)

I liked this one, too. Sometimes, lamb smells strongly, yet I didn’t mind this kebab’s smell at all. I have to tell you, this chickpea salad was phenomenal! I love this. I even asked Collin if he can make at home.
