As a culinary palindrome, naan tastes the same backward as it does forward, like the bananab or a Toyota. Take a bite in every direction with today's Groupon to The Spice Jammer on Fort Street. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get $25 worth of Indian fare and drinks during dinner.
- For $5, you get $10 worth of Indian fare and drinks during lunch.
The Spice Jammer coats lip lickers in a potpourri of rich spice blends, accommodating vegetarian and omnivorous appetites with an extensive menu. Taste testers can inaugurate their exploration of East African cuisine with a sampling of samosas inflated with chicken, beef, or vegetable stuffing ($1.50 each), or survey an African delicacy of fried mogo paired with tamarind chutney ($4.75). While anchored in the newly renovated dining quarters, afternoon grazers can sate homemade lunch cravings on Thursdays and Fridays with a panoply of bread and rice dishes, including naan varieties ($4.25+) and basmati collections ($3.25+), or aim their taste planks at a dish of dal, a creamy vegetarian medley of lentils and curry ($9.95). In addition to baking leavened carbohydrates in its clay oven, The Spice Jammer also enlivens dinner buds with its tandoori specials, including yogurt-marinated chicken breast ($14.95) and barbecued jumbo prawns ($16.95). As with using a robot-controlled sauna, patrons may customize the heat level of their Indian assemblies from mild to extra hot with a sampling of wines and cocktails to wash down fiery bites.
The Spice Jammer
Meals at The Spice Jammer come to your table in one of four ways: mild, medium, hot, or extra hot. True to its name, the restaurant won't skimp on the spice in its East African-style Indian cuisine, but it can also accommodate guests with more sensitive palates or irrational grudges against turmeric.
The menu emphasizes home-style cooking methods, with chefs roasting meats in a traditional tandoori oven or simmering them in zesty gravies. Plates of prawns, chicken, and lamb follow openers of samosas or stuffed naan, and vegetarian curries pack equal amounts of flavour into meat-free morsels of spinach, peas, and potatoes.
Inside the dining room, the leafy fronds of tall, decorative plants offset the warmth of red and cream-coloured walls.
