A little sweet, a little spicy, at India Sweets & Spices

Stepping into India Sweets & Spices is like stepping into a whole new world. Immediately you'll experience sensual overload from the mishmash of people, colors, and scents, which definitely is not a bad thing. Their authentic, homey, and vibrant tasting Indian dishes are perfect for anyone craving something unique, quick, and tasty for lunch. Even better, they serve their food up deli style, so you get to admire all they have to offer and order whatever catches your eye. 

A delicious combination plate of vegetable rice pilaf, veggie curry, curried potatoes and cabbage, pickled vegetables, and yogurt, with a side of naan bread. The rice was quite spicy but still tasty, and both of the curry dishes were very flavorful. The pickled veggies and yogurt sauce were great for cooling down after the heat. 

Strawberry and Mango Lassi. A sweet yogurt drink thinner than typical smoothies, and pleasantly tart. The perfect drink to go along with the strong, bold flavors of Indian cuisine. The combo plate, naan, and mango lassi were all just $7.99.

An Indian classic, Masala Dosa, a thin, crispy rice flour crepe filled with potatoes and spices and rolled into a long wrap. It comes with coconut yogurt raita, tomato chutney, and vegetable soup for dipping. Warm, crispy, and flavorful, masala dosa MUST be eaten immediately for ultimate enjoyment. Delicious and affordable at just $4.99!
