Restaurant Review: Herbs & Spice, Indiranagar
On a quiet, residential street in a quiet corner of Indiranagar off of CMH Road is a modest restaurant housed in the ground floor of a nondecrepit building. But at Herbs and Spice, there is nothing modest about the food.
If you are in the mood for good, reasonably priced Continental cuisine and are looking for cozy place to enjoy it in, Herbs and Spice is the place to be. From the furniture to the layout to the decorations, everything reads simple and utilitarian (even the menu is written out on a big blackboard spanning one entire wall of the restaurant), but the ambience will surely make you comfortable. When we visited the restaurant, most of the patrons seemed like they frequented the place – they were familiar with the menu and with the owners (as were the owners with them).
The restaurant serves all the usual fare you would expect to find in an Italian restaurant – the pastas, the pizzas, the salads and the soups, but the dishes are made flavorfully. Each one of the five of us was happy with whatever we ordered – the steak, the roasted tomato and red pepper soup, the yummy salad with green apples and walnuts, the spaghetti with the pesto sauce, and penne with marinara sauce. The restaurant also serves quiches which I haven’t found in many other Italian restaurants in Bangalore.
But if you go to Herbs and Spice, and even if you don’t eat anything else, you must eat the desserts and the one that I heartily recommend is the Walnut Meringue. In fact, make a trip to Herbs and Spice just to enjoy the succulent richness that is the meringue because you will need an empty stomach to appreciate it and once you eat the meringue, you will not have the space or the appetite to eat anything else any way.
