Spice Coast is well-known restaurant down Marine drive for their spread of Indian food.



Spice Coast on Marine Drive is typically an Indian restaurant, and they do a good biriyani. This time though, we tried out their Chinese menu - not expecting much - but we were pleasantly surprised. We've found a really good choice in Spice Coast for hot butter cuttlefish (and you can get it delivered through Quickee for sudden cravings.) 

The Chinese Menu 

Like we said before, Spice Coast is typically Indian food (to read about it click on our 2013 review in the column on the right). So going for Chinese food at an Indian restaurant sounds pretty ludicrous. It was a fluke - we saw a comment on Quickee praising their cuttlefish, and we made the call. The plate of cuttlefish costs Rs. 690 and it comes in plenty. It's a very hot and spicy dish, and the cuttlefish was wonderfully seasoned and crispy. 

We also got something else from the Chinese menu for funsies - rice with chilli crab, for only Rs. 390. It came in a huge portion, with cabbage, corn, an omelette and two crab claws soaked in chillified gravy. The crab wasn't much to speak about, but overall the meal was filling and a shape-eke Sri Lankanized-Chinese one (especially with the side of cuttlefish). You can customize your Chinese lunch - either rice or noodles, with either chicken, fish, prawn, cuttlefish or chilli crab.  

Delivery 

The big deal about this find was that I can now happily get cuttlefish brought to my door. The world of cuttlefish-delivery usually features sad excuses for cuttlefish like from Steam Boat or Flower Drum. So Quickee's doing a good service to (lazy) cuttlefish lovers everywhere - delivery was fast and efficient this time. 

Conclusion

Spice Coast does good Indian food, but unexpectedly, they're not bad at producing some good old bastardized Lankan-Chinese food either. If you're in the mood for a quick plate of hot butter cuttlefish, these guys make some good ones.


TIP

They do big biriyani savans (Rs. 2,950 for chicken
