Dot Com Pho – Caribbean Fusion Edition

We’ve been doing a kinda road trip editions of Dot Com Pho lately. Last week, we went to Burnaby to do a back to basics Pho 101. This week, we’re in North Vancouver to take in the Caribbean Days Festival and have lunch at Indian Fusion. Both restaurant and festival happens along Lonsdale Avenue, which is the main road leading to Lonsdale Quay.

The Caribbean Days Festival starts with a parade along a 2.5KM stretch of Lonsdales Aveneu and ends at the Waterfront Park on Lonsdales Quay. After the parade, there are stage performances and other events happening throughout the day. The two day event is still happening. If you have time on Sunday, you should go check it out.

Indian Fusion is a traditional East Indian restaurant that makes a pretty good butter chicken. The place was dead when we were there, which we found strange since so many people came out for the Caribbean festival. I guess they wanted try out Caribbean food instead of East Indian food.

For the Caribbean Fusion Editon of Dot Com Pho, we have the Caribbean Days Festival parade, the queens of samba, how to turn 17 minutes into 40, drinking a Lassi, eating from a prison tray and ranking for the big cock. Anyone is welcome to join us for Dot Com Pho. Follow me on Twitter to find the time and location of the next one.

  1. 1st to comment.

    I never imagined that you have something like this on your country.

  2. Looks like you had a good time. Some of the things people we’re wearing looked wild. I found it kind of funny actually. It’s cool to see that the Carribean is even celebrated in Vancouver.

    1. Of course. Canada is one of the most multi-cultural countries in the world.

    Hey John, it sounds like to me that you always have something to do out there. That’s why you always have something to write.

  8. Just near the rice that was matar paneer dish. One of the most favourite dish of India.

    So stephen how many times you have been to prison.

  9. Most exciting thing of this post was Sally Chow dance at the end. Its like cherry on your dish.

      I agree with you! John, I jealous of you that you have a cute Sally. I think the best part of dot com lifestyle is that you can actually enjoy most of the time with your family, espcially your kids. You’ve done it John! 🙂


  10. Always switching up the Dot Com Pho. So have you found a sponsor for your dinner/lunch yet?

    Even after the video loaded completely, firefox had troubles playing the video. I wonder what the problem is…

    1. I didn’t have any problems viewing it with Firefox 3.0.12 on Windows Vista.

  19. Great parade pics! Looks like a good time.

  20. Dean Saliba says:
