Restaurant Review: Donair Town (Robson St.) - Vancouver, Canada

There's nothing better than having a delicious and satisfying lunch on a trip for a good price, and Donair Town in Vancouver, Canada was exactly that. We were looking for halal restaurants near Stanley Park and came upon this one on which worked out perfectly.

Mosque Tour: Masjid Al-Salam & Education Centre (Vancouver)

On our recent trip to Vancouver, we had just finished exploring Buntzen Lake and eating Malaysian & Singaporean food at Makan Place Restaurant (in Burnaby), but on our drive back to downtown Vancouver, we just happened to drive past this beautiful building by accident, just down the street from the restaurant, Masjid Al Salam & Education Centre.

We spotted the minaret from down the street and said to each other "Is that a masjid?", and coming closer we were stunned by its beauty! We were so curious about the masjid that after missing the turn, we spent around 10 minutes making u-turns to find our way back to it to have a tour and drop a few rakat, lol. I'm glad we did.

Restaurant Review: Makan Place - Vancouver, Canada

On our recent trip to Vancouver in May 2016, we spent the day driving and exploring Buntzen Lake, which is located about a 1.5 hour drive from downtown Vancouver. On our way back, we decided to have lunch at what seems like the only halal restaurant in the vicinity, Makan Place, a Singaporean & Malaysian Restaurant.
