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. 🙂

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.

From May to October, there was an event, Friday Night Market, in North Vancouver on every Fridays. On the second week of Friday in October, I searched when exactly the event ended, but each site did say a different date or didn’t mention any. So, I decided to go there anyway, and there were some food trucks there and some tents open.

As October, it was a much colder day. I quickly walked in the venue and looked at which trucks were there. Not many choices. The first one I chose was Roaming Dragon. They serve Pan-Asian food.

Collin and I tried their food at PNE, so I chose something different. I ordered two of this.

Chinese Pork Slider
(Asian spice braised Pork, Pickled Cucumber and Green Onions, Hoisin Sauce, Steamed Bun)

I liked the pork belly. Collin said it was OK, though he usually likes pork belly. Maybe because I waited for him finishing to work so that the food got cold.
