Bear with me whilst I try to make this more review and less writing ‘I <3 Spice Box’ all over my notebook.
I happened upon Spice Box last Thursday when Kerb tweeted that they’d be having their debut that day at Kings Cross. I couldn’t quite believe my eyes that we were going to get a second Vegan option at Kerb (the first being the infamous Club Mexicana, who were having a Thursday off from Kings Cross Kerb). Spice Box will be popping up at various Kerb locations throughout the rest of June.
Spice Box pride themselves on making nourishing bowls of goodness; delicious Indian food that’s not laden with fat, sugar and thousands of calories. And they are entirely vegan, their website states “We care about the impact our food has on the world around us. That’s why we never use animal products in our food. Ever.”
You can build your own Spice Box for £8, starting with your choice of main:
- Cashew and Coconut Summer Veg Korma
- Jackfruit Jalfrezi (which sadly they didn’t have that day!)
- Crispy Chickpeas
- Tandoori Cauliflower Steak
Add your rice:
- White Basmati
- Brown Rice
- Spiced Cauli-Rice
Then your salad (changes daily as seasonal).
All boxes come with: salad, pickles, date and tamarind chutney, raita, roasted cashews and crispy onions.
*mains, rice, salads and extras may vary from market to market/restaurant and takeaway, this is just a guide
I had the Crispy Chickpeas, Spiced Cauli-Rice with Lemon Bulgar and the Kochumber Salad (chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, etc). Topped off with raita, pink onions and cashews.
My lunch date, Mel, went with the Cashew and Coconut Summer Veg Korma, Spiced Cauli-Rice and a mix of both salad options – the green leaf salad and the Kochumber.
As soon as I tucked into mine I declared it to be a 10/10 but then when I tried Mel’s it managed to be even better than mine but mine was still a 10.
The Tandoori Cauliflower smelt absolutely incredible but I’d already ordered before I spotted it and I’ve thought about it every day since. The one that got away…
The food was incredibly tasty, every single component has been done so well and all of the flavours came together so exquisitely.
Mel exclaimed “I just wish I could fit more of it in my mouth at once” and that pretty much sums it up. One of the best meals I’ve ever eaten.
You can order a delivery if you live near their Columbia Road kitchen, click here for more details.
They will be at various Kerb locations throughout the rest of June 2016 and they can be found every Saturday at Druid Street Market in Bermondsey; but do check their website/social media to double check where they’ll be.
