Spice of Life, Taste Food Tour

So next up on the Taste Food Tour is the Spice of Life. Have you heard of Taste Food Tours? They are a not-for-profit organisational the promote diversity and cultural harmony. Their Harris Park tour is a cracking tour and full of new things to try if you are not familiar with Indian cuisine.

The first thing I notice is that there is a big sign outside of the Spice of Life and it reads free food for needy and homeless people. It's good that their food does not go to waste and supports the local community. It's a casual eatery in Harris Park.

This place is known for it's buffet however we are ordering off the menu today.

The owner of Spice of Life joins us briefly to talk about some of the key highlights of Indian Cuisine and gives us an insight into what we will be tasting today. Our tour group also has a rounded discussion about what has been our favourite venue so far.

But now.. to the food. Firstly, there's the Malai Kofta, potato and paneer balls that are deep fried and then served up in a rich and smooth gravy sauce. It's also topped with nuts for some texture too. I quite like this dish. 

We also have the Masale dar Goat which is more familiar in taste and texture with other Indian restaurants that I've been to in Sydney. MW gets right into the goat with some rice but I stick to my naan bread. 

and we finish off with a mango lassi. The lassi is smooth, sweet and rich in flavour which is exactly what you need after a nice curry.  This is a really nice venue and I'll have to come back.

The food taste tour has been so enjoyable so far. There's only one more stop in the Harris Farm Taste Tour which is dessert.
