The Spice of Life!
I have a new addiction and I feel like the first step to curing it...is to talk about it...admit you have a problem. What am I hooked on? Heroin? Acid? Crack?....no...worse.
I am addicted to the Indian food at "Spice of Life" in my neighborhood.
For 10 pounds (around $15.00), you can get a starter, main dish, side and rice or Bread. This is a lot of food and the cook staff at Spice of Life know how to make a mean curry dish. They pride themselves on their always changing menu and fresh ingredients.
It has gotten to where the dining staff know my boyfriend and I when we walk in and they know to get my Gaymers Cider ready. Our meal always starts with poppadoms (a light crispy dry bread) with a beautiful dish of sauces for dipping. My favorite is a chili lime sauce with actual lime rinds...it sounds strange but it is AMAZING.
We ordered Peshwari Naan tonight.. Naan is an oven baked flat bread that comes in many variations. You can get it w/minced lamb inside (my favorite) or with garlic for example. Peshwari Naan is a sweeter version with nuts and sultana grapes dried inside. I wasn't a fan of the sweet flavors with my firey curry so would go back to a more savory flavor on my next visit.
As far as Indian food goes, this is the best I have ever had. It was an amazing evening, amazing food with my amazing guy. What a great way to start the week.
Spice of Life is located at 260 Lee High Road in Lewisham.
If you are ever in the area, stop in for a meal that will not break your wallet and that you will not soon forget!
