Cafe Spice.

Cafe Spice is a fabulous Indian restaurant that takes flavour to a whole new level. With a stunning collection of dishes all over their menu, it’s no wonder so many people regularly head to Cafe Spice to treat their tastebuds. While you may believe the majority of dishes are meat-focused, there are actually plenty of veggie options for foodies to choose from too, such as Chana Palak Pudina, which features chickpeas, spinach, mint leaves and more. Cafe Spice also makes a fantastic vegetable masala that includes a mixture of vegetables like potatoes, peas, carrots, and beans cooked with onions and tomatoes as well as spices like garam masala powder, ginger and garlic powder. Sounds delicious!
