The cooks at Maurya Bistro Indian Cuisine harness the high heat of a traditional tandoor clay oven to bake lamb, chicken, seafood, and vegetarian dishes marinated in aromatic indian spices. Coconut-milk sauce flavours pieces of chicken breast, and ginger garlic and yogourt season alaskan salmon. A dozen vegetarian entrees quell meat-averse appetites, with dishes such as mashed eggplant roasted in a tandoor oven with onions, peas, ginger, and herbs.
Nando's Flame-Grilled Chicken, founded in South Africa in 1987, brings Portugal's peri-peri flame-grilled chicken to the Vancouver area with only the bare minimum of laser lights and smoke-shrouded, two-way mirrors. Discovered by Portuguese explorers in Africa in the distant days of maritime exploration, peri-peri is a fiery chili pepper that adds a kick of capsaicin to any cuisine, clucker-related or not. Nando's fresh chicken breasts luxuriate in their peri-peri marinade for 24 hours, resulting in dishes with a slate of Scoville-scale-scorching spice levels—mild lemon and herb, medium, hot, and the daredevil-only extra hot. Step up to Nando's counter to order from the menu of sandwiches, pitas, wraps, salads, and peri-peri chicken. Enjoy a grilled-to-order peri-peri half-chicken with a side ($11.39) such as spiced rice or hearty coleslaw, or bite around basted bones with a dozen peri-peri chicken wings with a side ($9.99). Nando's also sports peri-peri chicken breast sandwiches or pitas ($8.49–$10.79), chicken or veggie whole wheat wraps with a side ($8.49–10.79), and veggie burgers or pitas ($8.49–$10.79), as well as salads and salad meals ($3.99–$9.99) for lovers of leaves of lettuce.
Adi's On The Ridge's lively lounge bustles with music and energy, but inside the kitchen Chef James Reeder is deep in concentration, assembling innovative plates of eclectic international cuisine. Whether whipping up dinner, appetizers, or brunch-buffet dishes, James and his kitchen crew prepare each item diligently from fresh ingredients.
Outside of the kitchen, bartenders gaze out onto the glitzy lounge and dining area, mixing up cocktails from premium liquors and uncapping bottles of international beer. A big-screen television glares down on drinkers and diners perched upon cushy red chairs, and sunshine pours over those seated in the outdoor patio. On weekend nights, the venue transforms into a vibrant nightclub, hosting DJs, live music, or spirited whisper choirs.:m]]
Mario Facchin embraced his passion for food by dedicating 40 years of his life to the restaurant industry. Now joined by his son David, Mario applies this same passion to The Rendezvous and its menu of Greek- and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. Souvlaki, moussaka, and spanakopita can emerge from the kitchen along with familiar Italian dishes, including pizzas and oven-baked pastas. The cooks lend the entrees a homespun twist by making béchamel, lemon-dill, and mushroom sauces in-house and by taking zillions of pictures of every souvlaki's first grill marks.
Champions of adhering to traditional recipes and culinary practices, a father-and-son team serves as both the owners and head chefs of New Passage to India. Their kitchen staff whips up dishes native to a variety of Indian regions, granting diners a taste of the subcontinent without the paper cuts that come from eating maps. They handcraft ingredients such as house-made paneer cheese, garden-fresh mushrooms, and fresh lamb with pinches of hand-ground spices. Sensitive to varied tolerances of piquancy, the chefs customize the heat levels of many of their creations to individual preferences. Affable servers wend from table to table within the dining room’s deep-green walls and wooden columns.
A lot can happen in 60 seconds. A Rubik's cube champion can solve the puzzle nearly nine times over, while Olympian Usain Bolt could run six 100-metre dashes. At Perfect Tan, 60 seconds is all the time Mystic Spray Tan needs to darken any type of skin without requiring UV exposure. Mystic Tan's flawless spray tan results last 5-7 days. The Mystic spray tan is one of Perfect Tan's six tanning options, including beds which bronze bods with features such as the Starship stand-up's extra-long 220-watt VHR/HP lamps and the Open Sun 1050's high-pressure UV rays. Alternatively, the facility's eighth bed, Beauty Lounge, rejuvenates epidermises rather than tanning them, imbuing skin with a more glowing complexion in the short term and diminishing age and pigment spots in the long term.
