I hope everyone had a good weekend. It seems many of you were enjoying time away by the looks of all the RVs, campers and caravans that were on the highways. Before heading out of Kelowna, we decide to have dinner, so we wouldn’t be famished by the time we got home.
This is Everest Indian and Nepalese Cuisine in Westbank.
**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.
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 swung into Heba Supermarket at the crack of noon. I actually arrived a little earlier and patiently waited until the lights flick on at precisely 12:00. I'm not the only one waiting as three others loitered around watching their watches too. We are all here for lunch. We all want samosas.
Before I order my samosas, I make a bee-line to the beverage coolers located in the far corner of the store.
Laziza Malt ($2.50)
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.
Eggs ($4.00 per dozen extra large or $3.50 per dozen regular size)
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.
Goldie's is a south asian restaurant that sits on the same lot as some motel (the name of the motel escapes me at this time.) It looks to be a family operated business, with all members of the family multitasking as servers, bussers and front end staff. This is my second visit to Goldie's since moving from the eating heaven that is Vancouver and it's surrounding areas.
