*These groceries are for 1 week, 2 people, and exclude previously purchased meat that may be used from the freezer. Not pictured above: beef short ribs bought at the Granville Island Public Market.

It’s considered by many, myself included, as the 2nd best Indian food in town, after Vij’s.

What sets Maurya apart? Keep reading…
