Bringing a fantastic array of tantalising Indian flavours to the quaint Kentish village of Hythe, Southern Spice is a must-visit for any curry lover that finds themselves in the area.
The brain-child of two Indian hoteliers, who happened to meet in Aberdeen in 2002, the vibrant and contemporary eatery is a result of a number of years of experience in the catering sector – particularly when it comes to the food of the exotic sub-continent.
Using only the best in locally sourced ingredients, the well-travelled chef, Harrie, who has worked in the likes of Abu Dhabi and Bahrain, has developed a menu jam-packed with creative dishes that are cooked fresh with a huge emphasis being placed on being healthy.
Whetting the appetite in style are the sumptuous starters, which include a glorious lime and coriander marinated scallop number that is wonderfully contrasted by the scrumptious lamb and scallion seekh kebab in a list of delectable appetisers that promise to set the appetite up suitably for what’s to come.
The main course selection includes a range of curries that are fit to cater for any appetite and taste bud requirement. Particularly enticing plates can be found in the likes of a nadan goat curry, which is slow-cooked in red onion, Kashmiri chilli, yoghurt sauce and aromatic spices, and the belly pork vindaloo, a twice cooked delight that is infused with smooth red chilli, garlic, cinnamon and a Toddy vinegar sauce.
Sat on the doorstep of the A529, Southern Spice is easily accessible and, being just a short car ride away from the South Downs National Park and all of its splendor, makes for a wonderful place to conclude a day of exploration and enjoy an exquisite meal – particularly when considering the superb tastecard discount.
Please note: The tastecard discount is unavailable on Bank Holidays.
