Bombay Street Food
This morning I featured Shaffeen Jamal of Vancouver's Rubina Tandoori and Tamarind restaurants. Starting March 7th, until March 31st, both restaurants will feature different Mumbai Masala menus, based on the street and beach food of Bombay, India, now known as Mumbai.
Each Thursday night during the promotion, you can also get your hands decorated with henna by a Mehndi artist for just $5.

Helping me get ready for Valentine's Day today was Joanne Mogridge of Cocoa West Chocolatier on Bowen Island. I especially like their hot chocolate with Mexican chili peppers!
