Notice : Spice Bar Nico already quit their business. (January 30th, 2016)
Autumn flavor in Indian foods bar.
My friend took me to Spice Bar NICO again the other day 🙂
This time, I’ll divide the story by two posts, today and tomorow. Because I have much pictures 😛
When we arrived at the bar, we found the bar remained closed.
That day, the bar opened from 18 p.m., his reserving time. It was because the shopekeeper had to attend the meeting.
So, we could see such a nice shutter.
As soon as we took seats, one guest came….. she was our acquaintance ! Woow !!!
Every time I visit the bar, I met someone I know 🙂
Left is my friend’s mango lassie harusame (マンゴーラッシー春雨, 600 yen) and right is my Darjeeling Cooler (ダージリンクーラー, 600 yen).
“Harusame” is branded name of awamori(strong Okinawa liquor).
I have liked darjeeling cooler very much since I drunk it last time.
I’ll buy darjeeling liquor in a few days 🙂
We ordered “Okami course(おかみコース, 3000 yen)” that time, too.
At first, Indian snack that is named Namkeen (ナムキン) came. I had never heard the name.
It is made from floor, garbanzo beans and dried fruits. So spicy and tasty. Namkeen. I put firmly in my mind 🙂
Next, assorted achar.
This is Autumn eggplant and Grifola frondosa achar (秋茄子と舞茸のアチャール).
I searched for Grifola frondosa, and my friend said me he ate 😛
I felt Autumn by the dish 🙂
And it is cabbage and coconuts achar (キャベツとココナッツのアチャール).
Sweetness of coconuts went with spice well.
Then, I ordered rum and chai (ラムチャイ, 600 yen). I like it, too !
Green chili and shrimps salads (青唐辛子と海老のサラダ)
Those shrimps were fresh and springy texture. And the green chili was sour and spicy 🙂
Green chili is not so hot at first, but I suddenly felt extremely hot after a while.
MY friend’s second drink was acai lassie (アサイーラッシー, 450 yen) that I recommended to him.
Eh ? Why I recommended to him ?
Because … I wanted to drink a bit 😛
I like it too. I want to order it with “harusame” next time 🙂
Gizzard confit (砂肝のコンフィ)
I can’t help eating it when I visit NICO. It was so soft that I couldn’t believe it was gizzard !
Next, cheese kulcha. We could select one from ordinary cheese kulcha, gorgonzora cheese kulcha and mentaiko cheese kulcha that time, too.
We ordered a gorgonzora kulcha (ゴルゴンゾーラチーズのクルチャ).
Truthfully speaking, he seemed to want to eat mentaiko cheese kulcha ….
Probably he noticed that my wish that I wanted to eat it ! 😛
It had stronger fruits taste than last time. Still it was delicious.
That’s all for today. I’ll write the sequel tomorrow 😀
