Appetizing Indian Cuisine at Spice Rack

On our recent visit to Bensalem, a small town near Philadelphia we came across Spice Rack after reading a lot of immensely positive reviews in Yelp. Located on Knights Road, this is a small restaurant with limited seating mainly dealing in take-out.

Let’s talk about “Food”

The menu is quite extensive so it took us a while to decide what to start with. This time we opted for only Vegetarian dishes and ordered Bhelpuri, Dahi Chaat and Papdi Chaat for appetizer.

After a bit long wait we got served with these delish snacks. From the first bite I got hooked on Bhelpuri, a tangy, garlicky and fully flavored one with authentic Indian spices. It was the most delicious chaat I ever had till now in USA.

Dahi Chaat one of my all time favorites didn’t disappointed me as well. Crisp puri exotically garnished with sev and coriander were so inviting that we finished all of them in a blink. Papdi Chaat took me back in streets of Delhi, the taste was equally good to what we use to have back home.

As we got fully confident on flavors we visited Spice Rack again to try some more items from the menu.

We ordered Paneer Pakora, Mutter PaneerGarlic Naan and ended up with Gajar ka halwa. Sadly, Paneer pakora really disappointed us, they were not as savory as they look, on the other hand Mutter Paneer was zesty, typical North Indian style.o (1)IMG_9354

I am a die-hard fan of garlic naan and after a long while I had one of the best at Spice Rack, crispy and light with loads of garlic. Uhh, this place has awakened desi foodie inside me.o (3)IMG_9356

The only thing in which this place lags behind is service, it’s slow. It can take a while to place an order and longer to get it on your table.

Overall, this place reminded us street food of Delhi. Spice Rack really surprised us with strong flavors, a small joint delivering the true taste of Indian Cuisine.

Restaurant Review: Pub-Style “Fuller House”

Fuller House is very popular pub style along with family restaurant. Located in Hinsdale downtown it’s always occupied, especially on weekends it’s hard to find a seating space.
After going through the restaurant reviews on Zomato, I was more eager to try those Mason jar Cocktails. 

As we reached there it was fully packed. We were warmly greeted and seated comfortably near the bar. The interior  was very classy,there was an upper deck for family seating and a full bar on the lower one.

So, let’s get started with drinks. I asked my server what would she recommend us and she suggested Blackberry Lemonade and Alagash and Blue Moon. Alagash, a draft beer with generous portion of wheat spiced with coriander, on the other hand Blue Moon is brewed with Belgian style wheat and oats having orange flavor.

Blackberry Lemonade includes Bulleit Bourbon,fresh lemonade and blackberry. It was served in a Mason jar,totally fascinating. Alagash was light with refreshing taste while Blue Moon was spicy.

For starters we ordered loaded Nachos with chicken(I am a nachos fan really, so no other food stands the chance.) and Buffalo Chicken Wings. Both were appetizing but wings were better out of the two.

With a very little space left in stomach, we opted for BBQ chicken pizza. It was average, that’s all I have to say as it was neither really flavorful nor bland !!!

not so good BBQ Pizza

Overall, it was a great experience of a pub-style restaurant. We really liked the service and food.

Here goes my rating for this restaurant :

Location-4.5/5

Food-3.5/5

Service-3/5

Ambiance-4/5

Fuller House is surely a place of its own kind.
