Dinner at Spice Market

This is a spectacular place with unusual Southeast Asian dishes
that's definitely worth a stop. Very trendy spot due to it's
"happening" Meatpacking District location and extravagant
decorations. Hands down, one of my favorite places for
creative and extraordinary dishes in the city. 

Wonderfully crunchy and crispy Lentil CHIPS and spicy chipotle SALSA are very unique and delicious. Control yourself though, this is just the start of the meal.

PEEKYTOE CRAB DUMPLINGS are incredibly light. Their fresh crab meat, delicate wrapping and fresh and crisp sugar snap peas are a perfect combination. A wonderful appetizer.

CHAR GRILLED CHICKEN sounds so ordinary but this dish is definitely far from it. This is one of my absolute favorites at Spice Market. There is some sort of citrus sauce that makes this chicken unbelievable. It's so easy to overcook such dishes but this chicken is always perfectly prepared, nice and juicy. Absolutely amazing!

Second favorite thing on the menu is PORK VINDALOO. Unbelievable meat is mixed with greens in a spicy sauce that is incredibly flavorful. It's worth coming here just for this dish. I can't say enough good things about this. You'll understand what I mean when you try it. Love this one!

Brace yourself, the chocolate bar with ice cream, milk chocolate sauce and caramelized banana is called OVALTINE KULFI. That's right, ovaltine, as in "More Ovaltin Please!" Everything about this dessert is spectacular. Rich chocolate bar goes perfectly with a delicious banana and ice cream. No matter how full,I always clean this plate.
