Ohh... You definitely stole my heart with Paan, described as a"South Asian delicacy, which is usually served after meals and on special occasions, consists of chopped areca nuts wrapped in betel leaves along with grated coconut, flower petals, or any number of other flavourings". I'm looking forward to try it! Lidia

Vancouver is very famous for its food and delicious drinks. maybe for those of you who have never tried it should try the drinks and food at this place. They also provide special prices for special occasions.
