What is creativity really?

Just one block from San Diego’S Pacific Beach, Spice Lounge is the perfect spot to enjoy happy hour with a date, or catch a Bollywood flicks with friends – all while feasting on a tasty Indian cuisine that fuses the richness of North Indian curries with the lightness of South India’s seafood dishes. To ensure guests experience a feast for their eyes and palates, Owner and Executive Chef Raj Mutti decorated the restaurant with vibrant hues of burgundy and created a suite of original, signature dishes: Nirvana – a curry paste made from an electric mix of spices, chopped onions and bell peppers; Chocolate Samosa – a pastry stuffed with chocolate and hints of cinnamon, served with a scoop of Pistachio ice cream; and Mango Martini – Indian mangoes infused with fragrant saffron and topped with a sweet strawberry. Chef Raj also designed a “create your own curry” menu that allows customers to choose a curry (with either cream or coconut milk) and pick a protein (chicken, lamb, fish, shrimp, paneer, tofu or veggies). For those on a stricter diet, he dished up a healthier option: Chicken Tikka – strips of boneless chicken marinated overnight in a secret, homemade sauce and baked in a clay oven.

    You are a genius! What could make soup better than a carby topping? And roast tom soup is my fave 🙂 Stunning photos, as always!

    I’m always so impressed with your props, they always go so perfectly with whatever you’re photographing. You must have an entire room dedicated to them!

    What an elegant and simple idea! And, maybe I’m crazy, but this seems like the perfect snack to take to the movies, especially if some dark chocolate and sea salt were added. 🙂
