Dinner at Spices for Southeast Asian Cuisine

Posted on November 05, 2012 by LISA KUNIZAKI | 0 Comments

It's been a long time since I went back to Spices, but when I found out they were discontinuing their dine-in and take out services beginning on Monday, October 29th, I knew I had to make my way there asap.


I ordered the Kaffir Limeade in Perrier. So refreshing..

We started with three appetizers: Grilled Eggplant on the Half, Spices Wings (chicken wings stuffed with ground chicken, deep fried, and served with sweet chili sauce) and Ty's Taro Shoot Salad (diaphanous slices of taro shoot served with a sweet and tangy Dijon-mint dressing).

Main courses...

Spices Laotian Curry which is based on a Madras curry, a homemade paste is simmered with coconut milk, kaffir leaves, snake bean, Laotian "pea" eggplant (Makeng), Laotian "baby" eggplant (Makhua), and dill.

Penang Curry- kaffir leaves, peanuts, holy basil, snake bean, and bell pepper simmered in coconut milk 

Sticky Rice

Noodles...Sophia's favorite Pad Thai with tofu.

The dessert was a real treat. We all ordered ice cream and sorbets because it's their specialty. You can order a pint of your choice 1-2 days in advance or ask the server what they have in stock.

Ice cream: Pandan, Lilikoi, Banana Cinnamon, Pineapple Basil, Chili Pepper Lemongrass

Sorbet: Starfruit 

Thank you again to the Victorino family for a fun night out, as always, I had a total blast. Spices, thanks for all the great memories.
