Chef shares a taste for global favours

From Jamaican jerk to Portuguese Peri Peri, crocodile to kangaroo, Flaming Ice fires a global grill

Taste the flavours of the world at Surrey’s Flaming Ice Family Restaurant and Sports Bar.

“Our unique burgers are one of our most popular items. You can try everything from wild boar to crocodile, or enjoy a familiar favourite like grilled wild salmon, chicken or Angus beef,” says chef and owner Kanwar Singh.

And yes, there’s also a veggie option, served on a fresh brioche bun with all the fixings.

That diversity has been a winning feature since Flaming Ice opened its doors last spring.

As Kanwar met locals and visitors from around the globe, they piqued his interest in some of the unique flavours not often found on the typical restaurant menu, like Peri Peri, jerk, tandoori and others.

“The response has been really excellent and our customers are still giving us ideas for new things to try,” says Kanwar, who brings a lifelong passion for cooking to his kitchen.

Moving to Vancouver in the 1990s, he recalls expanding his recipe repertoire with his roommates as each took a turn at preparing something new.

You might just taste some of those influences today!

House-made flavours

All sauces are made in-house from scratch and not all are spicy, Kanwar says, pointing to the smoky barbecue and lemon and herb sauces that have their champions among his regular customers.

The choice to flame-grill the meats was a natural. Not only does it provide a healthier option than fried food but it simply tastes better, infusing the meat with more flavour, Kanwar says. “It’s more time-consuming, but people really like the taste.”

Other must-try items include their twist on the traditional kebab, not to mention chicken wings and nachos, easily enjoyed within the comfortable setting.

“It’s a unique menu but one our customers seem to enjoy. We’re always happy when we see them finish their meal with a smile on their face.”

Great deals to be had

Not only does Kanwar’s team serve up a delicious variety of fresh-made fare, but there’s also some great deals to be enjoyed. Students and seniors receive 10 per cent off all day, while happy hour runs from 2 to 6 p.m. daily, with special pricing on appetizers, house lager and bar drinks.

Family meals are another savings option, and feature chicken or chicken and fish.

Prefer to order to go and enjoy in the comfort of your own home? They’re happy to do that too!
