This weekend, we ventured out to another unfamiliar neighborhood to try out new food. Through yelp, we found this place called “The Spice Jar.” Normally, I try to stay away from places that have too many cuisines going on at the same time. This restaurant serves Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, Chinese and Italian(?). However, this place has raving reviews and yelpers suggested to try everything on the menu. Sure enough, this restaurant lives up to all the great reviews. The food didn’t disappoint, especially the Albacore carpaccio and tonkatsu ramen. In fact, I think this is one of the best ramen I’ve had in the city. The chef came and asked us about the food. I later found out the chef is the owner of the restaurant. He traveled all over Asia and picked out the best represented dish from each country. What amazing talent to replicate the different cuisines and make it his own.
We all had a great experience here. Great food, friendly service, and cozy atmosphere. We’d definitely come back to try out their other dishes.
