Lunch at Tandoori Kona Restaurant

Tandoori Kona Restaurant is at a strip meal along Cambie Road. They serve delicious Indian food. Hubby and I ordered too much, as you can see.

Aloo Palak
Menu Description: Spinach and Potatoes

Tandoori Chicken
Menu Description: Traditional boned chicken tandoori

We ordered Tandoori Chicken because hubby pointed out that "tandoori" is in the restaurant name so it must be good.

Vegetable Samosa

Gulab Jamuns

This one is too sweet for us and we love our sweets!

A reminder of home at Max's Fried Chicken in Vancouver

I crave Kare-Kare, so hubby and I end up at Max's Fried Chicken, a famous restaurant back in the Philippines.

When you're here, be sure to get Kare-Kare, eat it with bagoong (shrimp paste), and cover your rice with the thick sauce. Then, get some fried chicken too. I usually end up ordering an extra cup of rice when I'm here.

Aling Mary's and Josephine's

Aling Mary's and Josephine's are the two closest Filipino restaurants to our place so we frequent both places when we're craving for Filipino food (that I can't cook).

Pho for Dinner at Express Pho

It's raining outside and winter is coming soon so a warm pho for dinner seems the perfect call. We went to the closest one at our place, Express Pho along West Broadway (between Granville and Hemlock).
