Saturday was a glorious day, for my dear friend Jackie was home for the weekend to celebrate Easter with her fam. And in the evening she managed to sneak out long enough to meet for a delicious dinner and major catch up at Spice Kitchen + Bar. Speaking of friends, Spice just happens to be owned by my very best friend Emily’s brother Ben. So much love in one meal! I almost can’t handle it.
Except of course I can :). We always have an awesome meal at Spice and I was excited to share it with Jackie during her visit to CL. We both enjoyed a lovely glass of wine to start, Zin for Jackie and Sauvignon Blanc for me, per our waiter’s recommendations.
There are two appetizers that are just way too delicious at Spice, their polenta fries and mushroom beignets with honey goat cheese creme fraiche (yes). And so of course we had to indulge in at least one. Above you’ll see the Polenta Chickpea fries with spicy remoulade. Crispy on the outside, creamy soft inside and served piping hot. They are insane!
And for dinner, the evening’s special: Pan-seared walleye over vegetable curry and jasmine rice. Hands down my favorite dish I’ve ever had at Spice. True to the very best that curry has to offer, this dish was rich but not heavy, so incredibly flavorful and satisfying. I was tempted to lick the plate.
A delightful evening – awesome Cleveland food, lovely out of town company. A very blessed Easter weekend indeed :).
