Buying Tiffins in Vancouver

Chomp Dec 9, 2009 11:08 PM

Does anybody know a good place where I can purchase a few tiffins at a good price? I'm guessing some shops in Little India might have some for sale, but I'm wondering if there are any stores in particular that might carry them.

    I think I have seen them at Wonderbucks.

      I phoned Wonderbucks' Broadway location today. The girl who answered had no idea what a tiffin was; I had to explain. She said they don't have them. I think I'll call the Commercial Drive location tomorrow.

      i bought mine at the indian stall @ GI, not sure if they still sell them but if you buy you get a deal on your first meal in it

        I love that place at GI - I even have a couple of tiffins that I bought there, but I don't want to spend too much money. I take my tiffins back all the time for refills!

        Chutney Villa at Main and Broadway has them in their window with a sign advertising them for sale. I forget how much they were asking for them. You can even see them on Street View! http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&h...

          Hmmm.....I think I'll go check 'em out at Chutney Villa....I want to buy quite a few, so I'm hoping they aren't too $$$. Thanks for the tip! Gotta love Street View....I can see my house, and it's so weird.....
