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.

On a Collin’s day off, we just decided to walk before dinner and to eat out somewhere. The daytime in Summer was longer and bright, and it was nice to walk whether in the woods or not.

As he had never been to this restaurant, we chose to go. Jambo Grill & Good Morning Paan serves Iranian, Indian, African food. It is a walking distance from Joyce Skytrain station.

We ordered from their regular menu. He ordered an extra garlic naan, adding to his butter chicken curry.

He liked this, but he preferred butter chicken to the other place on Commercial Drive.

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

I ordered the same one last time and really liked it, so I did order again. The great thing with this plate is that you can enjoy different tastes little by little and you won’t get tired of eating.

I want to order something new next time! (I said that the last time, too. :))

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. 🙂

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.
