Once again, I am going to skip the details of today’s lunch. Mostly because at 2:39 it hasn’t happened yet and also because I want to tell you about a most fabulous meal I had over the weekend.
That’s Vikram Vij with his famous lamb “popsicle” dish.
Deb and I traveled up to Vancouver, Cananda on one of our usual pilgrimages and found Vij’s on 1480 W 11th Ave in Vancouver’s Granville Rise (www.southgranvillerise.com) neighborhood, just around the corner from the Stanley Theatre.
For all you SAT takers: Vikram Vij is to Vij’s as Bruce Naftley is to Le Gourmand.
And you know how I feel about Le Gourmand here is Seattle. Vij’s flavors are subtle yet powerful. It was such a great experience to share food and company there. If you are in Vancouver…GO! No reservations, just show up and wait in the bar while they serve complemtary tasty snacks not even on the menu.
I remember fondly the bubbly lemon ginger drink…
Back here in Seattle after Columbus day off, or if you were in Canada with us, Thanksgiving Day, we find ourselves in the middle of chaos! Moving….
No beading today as things are in boxes. Here’s the empty house:
Out the upstairs window, walls being painted white, but the fall colors still show through:
Today is a beautiful fall day with the sun coming through the windows:
