What did I order?

Pork Belly Spoon

Local pork belly with apple mint chutney

  • I love how this appetizer comes in a cute little spoon
  • The pork belly was very tender, soft, and pulled apart
  • The apple flavour made this dish quite sweet and there was a hint of rich flavour from the fatty pork



  • Unlimited rice and naan come with you meal so you can request for them to bring more



  • The naan here is a little more dense than other naan I’ve had
  • It comes out with a nice char on it

Lamb Popsicles

Wine marinated lamb popsicles in fenugreek cream curry on turmeric and spinach potatoes

  • This is the dish that Vij’s is famous for and it is easy to see why.
  • The lamb is perfectly cooked. The meat is juicy and has a wonderful flavour to it with no gaminess.
  • The sauce is one of the best curry sauces I have ever had. It was very creamy and rich and it had a fragrant but mild spice flavour

Final Thoughts?

The food at Vij’s is truly unique and delicious. This is a restaurant every Vancouverite should experience at least once.
