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.

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. :))

It was a nice hot day in July. As I was out whole day and night on the previous day, I woke up later and decided to just walk around downtown Vancouver rather than go hiking. While I was walking, I looked for a place to have late lunch. I couldn’t get a better idea, so I stopped by at a food truck.

Cazba Express was on Robson street where the road was closed during summer. They have their restaurants in North Vancouver and Davie street and serve Persian food. I’m not familiar with those Middle Eastern food. Is it different from Iranian food? Anyways, I believe this is my first Persian food.

The wrap was bigger than I thought, so it filled up my stomach. The beef was tender. Their rice was long one, which is longer than long grain I had ever eaten. I would love to try Kabob next time!
