The Inman Park, Old Fourth Ward area has so many great restaurants to choose from that it’s often a difficult proposition to sort out where to eat. Luckily for me, I have some fantastic co-workers that are always recommending new places for me to try.
Last week was one of those rainy, dreary type of days during the winter where all hope seems to be lost. Not seeing the sun for a week, with temperatures in the 30’s, makes me wonder how people survive in the Northwest, and why anybody wants to live there.
I realized that the only way to dig myself out of the abyss of winters’ cold, hard grasp was to get some warm comfort food in my belly. When Indian food was brought to the table as a lunch suggestion, I knew, without hesitation, that this was the answer to my problems.
Spice to Table was the destination, and I really has no idea what to expect. The founder, Asha, began Spice to Table as a supper club, and now provides a great twist on Indian food in Inman Park.
Walking into the restaurant for the first time in the Studioplex complex, I was really quite shocked at the design. It reminded my of an old antique shop that I would hate to go to with my parents mixed with a library. It’s got a kind of quiet, grandiose to it if that makes any sense whatsoever.
You order at the back of the restaurant in a buffet style set up. All of the delicious, freshly made items are on display from soup to Somosa’s to the famous Carrot Cake.
I indulged in the pea and potato pocket with curried chickpeas over naan. It was really quite outstanding, and considering that it didn’t have any meat in it made me almost consider thinking about becoming a vegetarian.
I also had the roasted vegetables, and it really doesn’t get any better than that. Fresh sweet potatoes with onions, carrots, and squash with a wonderful spice to them.
You’re not going to be disappointed when you visit Spice to Table, so go check them out and let us what you think.
