Spiceburg restaurant is situated on the main road in the trendy, bustling suburb of Greenside. With the verandah covered, guests can enjoy the outside hustle and bustle in any weather. The interior is modern with an unmistakable Indian feel to it with the rich tapestries on the walls.
The chefs use only the finest spices to bring you the most authentic South and North Indian Cuisine, the first of its kind in Joburg.
South Indian Cuisine, also sometimes referred to as Dravidian Cuisine, is a term used to refer to cuisines found in the four southern states of India. As opposed to North Indian Cuisine, there is limited use of garam masala and other dried spiced except cardamom, black pepper and turmeric. Vegetarian meals are most common in these parts and are much milder than that of the North Indian Cuisine.
A South Indian Soup not to be missed is the Nandu Rasam, a crab soup with chunks of crab meat. For a Starter you can try the vegetarian Sambar Vadai, consisting of lentil fritters soaked in sambar. South Indian Mains are a mixture of vegetables and seafood with the vegetarian Avial a must try. The Kerala style melange of vegetables are smothered in yoghurt, green chilli, cumin and coconut milk. A popular fish dish is the Kerala Fish Roast Masala, a whole pomfret fish roasted with a mild masala.
North Indian Cuisine, is found in the eleven northern India states. The foods cooked in these areas are much richer and creamy as more butter and ghee is used.
Some North Indian starters include the Chicken Wings marinated in chilli, ginger and garlic. For mains there are the Chicken Tikka Masala, that have knocked off Fish and Chips as Brittian's favourite food, and the Kashmiri spicy specialty Lamb Rogan Josh with red chilli and herbs.
Spiceburg have chosen the best dishes from both South and North Indian Cuisine and hope that the experience is not only an educational but a mouth watering one.
