Two Friday’s ago before I left for Vermont, Ned and I were craving some Indian food after seeing this article in the Sun. Since I still had to pack, I picked the closest Indian restaurant to my abode and boy did we choose well! Cafe Spice was homey and comfortable and had delicious food!
The owner and owner’s family were so welcoming and helpful with our selections. My tastebuds certainly got woken up and I was so thankful! Now I can certainly attest to the fact that I have no serious experience eating Indian food and therefore can’t really say if this is better than any other Indian cuisine, but I liked it alot! Check out our selections below.
We first got the vegetable samosa- ‘Deep fried pastry stuffed with seasoned potatoes and peas.’ They were very crispy and had an amazingly seasoned warm filling.
Then we went straight to the goods that we were craving: garlic naan and curry! I got the chicken curry with medium spice and Ned got the Goat Madras and decided on having the very spicy sauce even though the waitress warned him about the heat level! The chicken was tender and the sauce, wow! So many spices and just luxurious to my tongue. The basmati rice appeared to have some orange zest and saffron seasoning, and it had a light and summery taste.
That boy blew his nose at least ten times while eating this, but he loved it. And the waitress got to laugh at him when he admitted that it was spicy, even for him. Ned usually douses his lunches with sriracha, so he can handle a decent amount of heat, but this blew his lid just a tad!
We both got a Taj Mahal (uhhh huge delicious beer that I just couldn’t finish) and with those dishes, the total was around 60 (with tip I think), which kind of surprised me, but it was exactly what I needed for dinner. I can’t wait to go back!
