New India Buffet & Restaurant in Vancouver, BC

We went to New India Buffet Restaurant to try Indian Buffet for the first time in the middle of October.

Naturally, that means various kinds of Indian curry are available and we were looking forward to it.

New India Buffet and Restaurant, Vancouver, BC
The restaurant is located in the broadway corridor and normally is filled with hospital workers and office workers.  However, in the weekend, it is quiet, as oppose to the other restaurants in other areas.
They have raised their prices.  Their weekend buffet is more expensive (does not make sense).

Their take out lunch was super cheap: 5 they raised it to 5.95.
Again, does not make sense because next year, the taxes will go down. They would have potentially more customers.

The seatings are nice and they do have around 10 kinds of curry and other meats and milk ball to choose from.

They have butter chicken, beef curry, yogurt curry, chick pea curry, vegetable curry, etc.

If you try many kinds of curry, it would certainly make you full.

I also tried the saffron rice, but it did not suit my taste.  My wife liked it though.
Both of us liked the dessert, "milk ball". (gulab jamun in India)

Above is a picture of milk ball.  It is the small brown ball at the top.

I am a picky eater, but I do like most of the curry in the restaurant.
I did not try vegetable and chick pea curry because I am picky.

I would recommend to go to this place not during weekends because they over charge when there is no customers.

Starbucks: Salted Caramel Mocha

Usually, Starbucks releases its seasonal drinks around Thanksgiving in Canada.

This year, they had a few flavors as well, including Pumpkin Spice Latte and Salted Caramel Mocha.

We tried quite a few Salted Caramel Mocha and love it.  It was available in Starbucks in Safeway for only 2 dollars!

Super Pretzel

We bought this box of Super Pretzel from Target.
I think it was 2.5 dollars when I bought it in October.
However, it is worth it because you can spend up to 5 dollars for one of this in food court.

My wife baked it for dinner the other day:
home baked pretzel
It is not as huge as Pretzels from outside but it is a good size!
It tastes very good as well.
