**UPDATE: September 2012 Nayaab Fine Indian is now closed. Cornerstone Sushi and Korean BBQ now occupies this space.**
After the original owner of Spice A Taste of Indian Cuisine sold his Northshore restaurant, he went on the hunt for a new project. This is the finished product: Nayaab Fine Indian Cuisine on Seymour Street near 6th Avenue. DL caught wind of this new Indian Restaurant via A.L.
I am in Vancouver for several days attending a conference for work. I’m hankering for some Hainanese Chicken Rice. I also want some bubble tea when I’m done, so I set my sights on City 1 Café on the corner of Oak Street and King Ed. City 1 Café is conveniently kitty corner to Dragon Ball Tea House.
Doesn’t the workload leading up to the end of the year seem like it quadruples?
I have enough time tonight to deek into Indian Aroma for a little dinner. You can’t see Indian Aroma from the street, because it’s a food kiosk inside a building on Victoria Street. I have never been in this food court before. Most of the food outlets in here are closed for the night, but Indian Aroma is still open for business.
I remember going to Banana Leaf Malaysian Cuisine back in my days in uni; back when Ais Kacang was still on their dessert menu. The initial Broadway location was located further west down the street. A Taste of Vietnam Restaurant occupies the old space now. The faded Yoplait Source yoghurt container that Banana Leaf used to hold their take out menus is still hanging outside the original location.
The Kamloops Farmers Market
The farmers market is back. Happy times.
What a gorgeous sunny morning for the first day of the Kamloops Farmers Market. This section of St. Paul Street is fairly quiet in earlier hours, but became a bit more abuzz later in the morning.

We decided to play Parking Space Roulette and let the next convenient spot dictate where we eat tonight. I’ve been to Maurya’s Fine Indian Cuisine a number of times, but that was about 3 or 4 years ago driving through town enroute to other destinations. I remember it as being just ok. I recall the take-out experience being way better than the eat-in experience and that's why I haven’t been back in so long.
I ended up here at Spice after a second failed attempt to eat at Vyanjan. I decided not wait an hour for Vyanjan to open and looked for eats elsewhere. One of us remembered vaguely a commercial about a South Asian restaurant on the north side of the river. We basically drove around until we spotted it. Kamloops, my friends, is not all that big.
