Just before Easter weekend, I had a craving for curry. Collin had a night off on that day, and he wanted to eat Ebi Ten plate. So, I headed to downtown Vancouver. Although I went there and they had curry as well, I just ordered his dinner, because this new place was in my mind to try.

ZAC-ZAC Japanese Curry House is a small fast food restaurant in the food court at H-Mart. They are specializing in Japanese curry. I can’t really described the difference from the other kinds, but it has lots of veggies and gluten. If you’re interested, you can read this. The restaurant expanded their menu to Donburi and Bento box, too.

I ordered from their curry menu to go.

They asked if I like mild or regular for spiciness. I couldn’t decide and asked how spicy it was, compared to the manufactured curry package. When I make Japanese curry at home, I use medium hot curry package. Having said that, they recommended the regular one.

I liked their curry, which the spiciness comes back in your month a little later. Katsu (cutlet) was crispy, even though I brought home.

I mentioned in the previous post that Collin and I went skiing to Whistler and we had early lunch around 11:00 am. We did riding until almost the lift closing. When we got to Whistler Village, we were both tired and needed to have something to eat. It was almost 4:00 pm, so I thought this would be supper. (Well, when we got home, he said he needed proper dinner! :O)

We went to Gone Bakery & Soup, where it is close to a book store in Whistler Village.

I ordered from their lunch menu, as I thought it would be supper. And, he ordered sweet from their special.

My friend and I went hiking to Lynn Regional Park, and it was even snowing in the early November, when we got to north of the trail. We walked a bit faster on our way back to the starting point, as it was getting dark around 4:00 pm. When we got back to the gate, we were so relieved but at the same time, I thought we should eat something to warm up.

My friend requested some spicy food, so I suggested Indian-African food. Jambo Grill & Good Morning Paan is close to Kingsway and Joyce street, and they serve Iranian, Indian, African, Canadian food, according to their site.

We ordered from their regular menu.

Chai Tea

The server kept coming for the refill without charge. I usually don’t like Chai, but it was nice to drink with all food. 🙂

Nyama Choma Combo
(1 Lamb Kebab & Kuku Choma, 2 pieces of Masai Ribs, Masala Fries, Garlic Naan, Salad & Raita)

This combo was nice to order to try different tastes for the first time. Kuku Choma is described as slices of chicken tenders marinated & grilled to perfection, and Masai Ribs are described as fall off the bone, thick beef ribs, marinated in a special sauce, in their menu. And all taste are good.

The menu was huge so that we couldn’t concentrate on what we ordered, but now I see it on their site, I would like to try new things including dessert.
