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. ūüôā

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.

Skipping my past food pictures for now, I’m going to up some timely pictures. ūüėÄ There must be Christmas events everywhere in the world, and Vancouver is no exception. For the first time, I¬†went to¬†German Christmas Market here in Vancouver. This event is held at the plaza in Queen Elizabeth Theater until Dec 24, started from the end of November. The theater is close to Stadium Skytrain station, in a walking distance from Vancouver downtown core.

I already have been three times, as I claimed the season pass! Everyone can do so, once you paid at the first time. The staff will explain to you as well as the receipt tells you how to do it.

The pictures today were taken on my first visit.

Santa was along the line up, when Collin and I was there. He looked like giving some candies to children.

There are lots of booths for gifts and food in the market. You will need some ID if you want to get some alcohol. We got some food for lunch.

Grill Bratwurst from Black Forest Meat & Sausages

Collin got this. I asked the staff what the difference between Grill and Schnechen was, and they showed the curling one is Schnechen.

I had this. They fried Schnitzel in the deep-fryer first. It was a cold day, so I guess they warmed it up for me.

After walking on booths for gifts, we decided to have some dessert.

They have two kinds of waffles; one is this German waffle, and the other is Belgian waffle (rounded one). As I haven’t seen the German one before, we chose this. There was also a promotion with $13 for¬†two German waffles.

The Day 1 was passed great!

Here is an extra picture. There was a merry-go-round in the market.

After riding, we had some time before getting on a bus heading to Vancouver. We decided to have early dinner, as it would be too late to have dinner when we got off the bus. Ingrid’s Village Cafe is a local hideaway cafe in Whistler. It is in Village Square, across from Araxi restaurant.

Collin ordered from their lunch menu, and I ordered from sandwiches selection.
