Green Lettuce Restaurant (Surrey)

Green Lettuce Restaurant (112- 6350 120th Street, Surrey, BC, Canada, phone 604-572-8677, at 120th Street and 64th Ave) is a Chinese – Indian fusion restaurant with a truly unique approach to the combination of these two cuisines, as reflected in the extensive menu full of remarkable and delicious dishes.

A reviewer on DineHere.ca writes (click here for review link):

First off this is the best Chinese/Indian restaurant out there. The food is amazing and always good! Being Indian, I love the authentic Indian taste with the Chinese twist. The menu is huge, and everything is worth a shot.

As an appetizer, we tried the Deep Fried Mini Buns (pictured below, $1.95). We also enjoyed the Green Lettuce Masala Wrap, which is like Chinese lettuce wrap with Indian spices, served with chutney sauce (also pictured below, $13.95). Other dishes we liked were the Hot and Spicy Squid (shown below, $14.50) and the Chinese stir fry vegetables (pictured below, $10.50). This restaurant is one of my all time favorite restaurants, mostly because of the unique and tasty way the dishes are spiced.

The restaurant is also very popular for take-out orders for those lucky enough to live in the North Delta/ Surrey area.

Ezogiku Noodle Cafe

Ezogiku Noodle Cafe (270 Robson Street, Vancouver, BC, Canada, phone 604-685-9466) serves bowls of hot, steaming Japanese ramen noodle soup. A bowl of ramen soup costs around $7.25 plus tax, and you can also order some appetizers such as pan fried gyoza dumplings. I enjoyed the Kimchi Ramen (pictured below), which featured the traditional Korean spicy cabbage as well as barbecued pork.

Ezogiku Noodle Cafe is located near the Vancouver main library downtown, as well as BC Place Stadium, home of the BC Lions Football team. It’s also a short walk from GM Place Stadium, home of the Vancouver Canucks hockey team. The restaurant is within easy walking distance of hotels such as the Rosedale on Robson, Westin Grand, and the Hampton Inn and Suites.
