I ate at spices the other day and boy was it bad. I know it gets good rec's on this board so I am curious why my experience was so bad. First off, it didn't smell good in there, and it just didn't seem very clean. My plate was dirty and the plate that the Tea Kettle was sitting on was filthy. OK, no prob, we can let that go.

I guess you need to know what to order here. We got a Cold noodle salad. It was more like a salad Jello, with overly thick Rice noodles in a strange Jello-like sauce topped with peanuts and chili's. Not good, looked so bad we couldn't even eat it. I took a small bite-very bad.

Next up, the deep fried tofu, also not good. A huge pile of deep fried Tofu, with a spicy crust and tons of chili's. Not a lot of flavor on the tofu and not sauce of any kind and the texture wasn't that great either.

Finally, Fried Rice, how could you go wrong? Here's how... really greasy, bland and really not that good. This was the only thing we ate of what we ordered, plus a little of the tofu.

Alas, I wanted to try the stinky tofu but they don't have it at this location. We were pretty disgusted I must say with the whole experience, it was awful. I'm not trying to trash a place that people like I just really had a bad experience there and I wonder how others could like it so much.
