Signboard, Spice bar Nico (Kiyosumi-Shirakawa)


There are only 7 seats in the bar, so it is necessary for you to reserve if you want to eat without fail. Of course, we did.
We reserved 3000 yen course in advance.

At first, we toasted with drinks.
Lassie (ラッシー) and Ram chai(ラムチャイ)

I had never eaten such a tasty cheese kulcha ! Cheese flooded ! It was sweet because dried fig and honey were in it.

Tandoori dish (タンドール)

Tandoori chicken, Spice bar Nico (Kiyosumi-Shirakawa)


Tandoori chicken, garlic chicken and flavory grilled shrimp. I hadn’t eaten such a spicy, tasty tandoori dish ! Awesome bar !
The green sauce was spinach and coriander. It tasted a little sour.

Pork bindaloo, Spice bar Nico (Kiyosumi-Shirakawa)


Chicken curry was best for me, but yellowtail coconuts curry was good, too. So creamy. In the contrary, I don’t like pork bindaloo all the same. I hate sweet dish 🙁

Chai (チャイ)

Chai, Spice bar Nico (Kiyosumi-Shirakawa)


The cup was small.

My chai, Spice bar Nico (Kiyosumi-Shirakawa)


I like drinking chai with small cup. I feel it’s more tasty with small cup than bigger cup. Well, it is because I saw Indian drinks chai with small cup in India on TV before.

I’m very happy that such a nice bar opened in Kiyosumi-Shirakawa 🙂

Of course, Nico is a bar, so you can drink cocktails that is used lassi, chai, awamori and so on. It is fun !
