Indian Dinner at Vij's


1480 W 11th Ave
Vancouver, BC

Vij's doesn't take reservations, and you could wait up to 2 hours to get a table. But the moment you walk in the door and your nostrils widen to the spiced curried aromas meandering through the air, you know the wait will be worth it. Start with the Punjabi heart attack, a spoonful of sweet and spicy cashews, then migrate to the date masala chickpeas atop a bed of grilled kale, and finish with the grilled lamb popsicles in fenugreek cream curry.

Curator Ryan Snyder

Ryan was raised in a funeral home, and consequently takes everything too seriously. Especially food. He doesn’t shy away from smoking 25 pounds of pork belly, nor from undertaking an intense year of “study” sessions to become a certified sommelier. He writes about charcuterie on Meat Club, and hosts recipes with his venture Foodgeeks.
