Three Things Thursday – Favourite Eats

It’s time for #3ThingsThursay. This is where you share three things from your week that you love, that are on your mind or that you just want to tell people about. This is the 11th week we’ve been doing it, (wow time flies.) If you want to catch up, here are some of the past posts. This week it’s all about my favourite places to eat!

1. James Street Cafe & Grill
This is a great little casual restaurant in the heart of Burnaby.  If we are ever in Burnaby, I always try and make an excuse to eat there. I wouldn’t categorize it as Indian food more like East African food. where my parent’s grew up.  There’s a good variety and my favourite thing to eat there is the Nyama Choma which is a plate of grilled meats that is really delicious! You get ribs, chicken and steak and I would recommend substituting the regular fries for mogo fries, so good! The reason I don’t have my own picture is because it’s so good that we’re half-way done eating the plate before I remember to get a photo!

2. My Greek Tavera
I do love me some greek food and one of my favourite places to get that is My Greek Taverna in Coquitlam. There’s a great menu and the food is delicious. Some of my favourites are the souvlaki’s, calamari, skaras and hummus. The prices are really reasonable and be prepared to take some home because the portions are big!

3. The Kebob House
If you’ve never had persian food, you have to try the beef koobideh, it’s so good!! The Kebob House is our go to when it’s a day when take-out is in order. The beef kebobs are amazing and you could just keep eating the rice all day. They have a little packet of season that you can shake on your food as well, called suma and it adds a great flavour. Oh yeah, and even the kids love it, so really you have to try it out.


* I also have to give an honourable mention to Nando’s Chicken because that’s another on of my favourites. But since this is #3ThingsThursday and not 4 Things Friday and because I’ve mentioned their chicken in a previous post, this will have to suffice.

Are any of these part of your favourites? Where is one of your favourite places to eat in your city?

I hope you enjoyed this instalment of 3 Things Thursday. Make sure you check out my lovely co-hosts, Nisha from Love Laugh Mirch and Raj from Pink Chai Living. And we’d love to hear about your three things. Just write up your post, grab the badge and click on the link below. It’s that easy 🙂

  1. The Kabob house looks great! We have a local favorite named Indigos. it has a variety of dishes from steaks, sandwiches, and salads. I love their Black and Blue Steak Salad, it’s grilled skirt steak over fresh salad greens with bleu chees crumbles and a light bleu cheese balsamic dressing.

  2. Have you tried Paros Taverna on Cameron? Their roast lamb is amazing! They use a citrus reduction of some sort. Souvlaki from My Greek Restaurant on Brunette (they’ve changed their name like 3 times in 5 years already!) without the extra oil they brush on top vs roast lamb from Paros! Always a tough choice! Lol

  3. Mmmh! We don’t eat out a lot (maybe twice a month or something like that) as it’s so expensive and calorific compared to cooking at home. We go somewhere different nearly ever time we do. But if I had your 3 favorites near me I might be tempted to try them 🙂
