Towson, MD 21286

www.thaispiceanddice.comThai food is notoriously spicy, and Spice and Dice advertises the spicy aspect of its food right in its name, so you know its going to fit the bill in that regard. Not only does the food sizzle with spice, but its exceptional Thai food as well. We know you’re there for the hot food, but if you happen to bring a spouse or friend who doesn’t care for that sort of thing, Spice and Dice has you covered. It presents its patrons with two separate menus: Spice and Dice, and Noodle Charm. You don’t have to stick to one menu, either. Order a little from each, and S&D will be happy to please.

www.memsahibrestaurant.comMemsahib is an Indian Restaurant. That fact alone should tell you that it is going to put curry and other spices in a lot of its food. But this restaurant goes the extra mile and gives its patrons the full Indian experience. Lunch is a buffet, so come in and make your own plate of as little or as much of whatever you like. But if you have an evening to kill, and want to be transported to another country, come in for dinner. You will lounge at the couches, be served course after course with hand washing in between, and a belly dancer to top off the evening. Just be aware, this takes a while.

The chief cook, “Cheffrey” Holter, puts together a house menu two times a week, so that the food is always new and interesting every time you visit. But if you like consistent and reliable, order off the regular menu which always has your old favorites in terms of buffalo wings and comfort foods. Dig into the giant homemade onion rings and then decide exactly how hot you want your wings: Buffalo Hot, Suicidal, Inferno or Devil’s Blood. Don’t worry, it has mild wings for your sensitive friends.
