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.
