Culinary30 – I Heart Indian Food


Since I’d had a few Indian dishes in the past, it wasn’t too hard to try some new things for the Indian Food portion of my Culinary30 challenge. Ok, let’s be honest. I’d only had veggie curry before…

We dropped into Salam Bombay in Downtown Vancouver one evening just before going to sing our hearts out at a karaoke place nearby. In case you are wondering, burping Indian food whilst singing “Living on a Prayer” is NOT very attractive.


I’m not gonna spoil the video for you, but let’s just say I liked eeerrrrrthang.

There’s only a few more things left on the list! Maybe I should start a new one?

Culinary30 – Spanish Tapas


1. Itty bitty tiny little expensive plates of Spanish foods that are good for sharing with picky eaters, ’cause they won’t eat as much.  

So, there’s this lovely place on Denman Street in Vancouver called España. And España is where we took ourselves one night after work to cross some things off my Culinary30 list.


As per usual, I liked some and didn’t like some, but all in all this dinner was a fun experience.

And the best part about any meal is DESSERT. Seriously. I’d eat blood pudding 100x just to get some more Dulce De Leche.


Ok, maybe not.

Culinary30 – Thai Foodz

This is my friend, Lin:


-Lin peer pressured me into doing the Culinary30 challenge. (I wanted to do 30 milkshakes. Like, REALLY BAD.)
-Lin shames me for wanting to eat BLT’s for every meal.
-Lin will eat ANYTHING.
-Lin grew up in Thailand (technically he was born in Burma, but ain’t nobody got time fo geography lessons).


So, for the Thai portion of the Culinary30 challenge, I was in good hands with this veteran. We took ourselves to Kin Kao Thai Kitchen on Commercial Drive for our meal.


I knocked quite a few things off of the list and surprisingly, I liked most of them! The only rule for this meal: No Pad Thai (which I’ve had before).

A big thanks to Linny for getting me outside of my food comfort zone and making me try new things. Also, thanks for taking one for the team and being that Asian dude always taking pictures of food. 😉
