    They are popular here. Lots of movies and TV shows are filmed here. The celebrities tend to stay at the Fairmont hotel on the waterfront, so their location near there, sometimes has "famous" people in line.

    Tonight is cheap burger night at White Spot, its a chain here started in 1928. I wish they still had car hop service with a 1950's style tray they attach to your car. Oh well I'll just do take out.

    Lin is pretty good. Her dad is really good, he visits a couple times a year. I got my own Hot Pot, pretty easy to do and comes out great.

    I'd be happy with the steamed buns alone.
    That's a feast!

    No posts today, odd! I'm still full from lunch. Made a tuna melt and Tomato soup. I might get sashimi and an order of chopped scallop rolls, later. Might skip dinner.

    Pandemic shutdown over. No one cooking at home anymore!

    Burgers on the gasser last night. Those are Costco Angus burgers. Not bad.

    Costco meat prices and quality ate hard to beat IMO. Only for specialty tests like wagyu will be mail order.

    Shutdown is long forgotten here it seems.
    Took a drive today and restaurants seem busy.

    We are trying to find the best take-out food to try to enjoy before getting out of here. Luckily for us, a very, very good Indian place was doing take-away; Kanishka. Its a northern Indian place, but taken to a foody level with superior ingredients and careful cooking. So, not our usual thing for Indian, where we typically seek out grungy, authentic, street-level Indian food. This is more refined. But...wow...

    There is a bit of story to this restaurant. The chef, Atul Kochhar, is considered one of the best chef's of any style in the UK (he was the second ever Indian chef to earn a michelin star back in 2007). Normally his restaurant serves "Michelin" style Indian...and thus we have avoided it. However, in a creative change-up due to covid, he has re-opened for take-out, serving traditional Indian foods (not michelin-y at all), but doing it with great ingredients and great technique. The result is spectacular...

    We ordered enough for 4 people and enjoyed a dinner last night and just had the leftovers for lunch.

    This was unreal....so good. How the heck are Indian's thin?

    Both Ania and I let out several "oh my God's" during the meals. The flavors were so unique, powerful and complex. There is no other food in the world that hits the highs of great Indian imho. The so-called "black lentils" were cooked in a rich, tangy, creamy sauce of spices and (I think) coconut milk (those are the lentils in the bowl in the last pic...lookit that sauce!). It was one of the best things I've ever eaten.

    Similarly, the Lamb Roganjosh was the best I've ever had (and I've had many). Even the chutney's were outstanding.

    What food. Still can't get over how great it was. We will get this again before we leave...

    (also, somewhat surprisingly, the white burgundy from Meursault stood up to the food very well)

    Costco here has a decent meat department, but for grocery store steaks, the co op store here is better...……..

    I've been meaning to try Indian food. My old town and the neighboring town to mine, both have large South Asian populations. I'm sure it would be good and authentic.

    Something I have not done in a while. Homemade heat and sweet dipping sauce. 5 or so dried red jalapeños. From garden last year, dried them once the growing season ended. Reconstituted in hot water, add a can of cling peaches, blitz with a stick blender, reduce over low heat. Wasn't too over the top in seed / membrane removal. So, it's got a nice kick beneath the sweet.

    Got some more bread rising the oven overnight for some more no kneed roasted garlic and rosemary bread.

    I think this one will rise better than the last.

    Details/link on this "no knead" bread. Plus I have rosemary and garlic in the garden. I hate kneading!

    This is the one I follow, but they're all about the same.

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.thekitchn.com/roasted-garlic-herb-no-knead-bread-22987118?amp=1


    The thing I did differently this time was make sure the water was between 115-120. That new thermometer is really coming in handy.

    It says 6-8 hours to let rise but you can let it go for longer than that. The last time it tasted fantastic.
