On weeknight in November, Collin was in charge of cooking, but he said he would bring some food home instead and asked me what I wanted to eat for dinner. I wasn’t feeling well for a while and was in the recovery mode, so I was thinking about something not oily.

I asked Sushi from Sushi Zero One. It is located on Pender Street downtown in Vancouver, walking distance from Waterfront station. As far as I look at their tweets, they always provide fresh fish, which is very important when it comes to Sushi or Sashimi. Since they no longer open on weekends, I have kept away myself.

He ordered from their regular menu.

(Tuna Roll, Tuna Nigiri, Salmon Nigiri, Ebi Nigiri, Tai Nigiri, Tamago, Saba Nigiri, Ika Nigiri)

It has been almost a year since the last visit? I hope they can open on weekends again.

It was nice that we still had time to spend together on that weekend, even after Collin and I enjoyed afternoon tea. Since it was his birthday weekend, I wanted to get something special for him, so we went shopping in Kitsilano area. Time went by, and we decided to have dinner around the area. I suggested eating Yakitori at a Japanese restaurant, but they’re gone! There was a new restaurant instead. We went back where we walked from and went in this restaurant.

The Noodle Box is on 4th Avenue, close to Burrard Street. They serve Southeast Asian cuisine. They are a casual restaurant that I could even say it’s a fast food restaurant. I have been to the restaurant in different locations, but I still don’t feel comfortable when I order. 😛

On some dishes, you can choose the spice level.

You can choose protein from chicken, beef, pork of Tofu. Prawns and free-run chicken are available with additional cost.

I ate chow mein before, so I chose this fried rice. There was some spice or ingredient that I didn’t like, but I couldn’t have figured out. I preferred chow mein.

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.

Currently, Dine Out Vancouver is held. As part of this, so is Street Food City. They also seem to attend to this event. If you haven’t tried their food, you have an opportunity here.
