Just had a wondeful Indian meal in Flushing at Southern Spice. It's a really bare bones place with exceptionally food. I started with a serrving of Kodi Rasam, a southern style chicken soup, which was spectacular. Broth was amazingly flavorful - just the right amount of spice. We also had Pappu Kooraku, a spincah and lentil mash which was not too highly spiced and without excessive ghee. It was delicious as was the Chapa Pulusu a fish curry with a wonderfully rich, citrisy tamarind sauce. The Nilgiri Kurmam, a goat dish with coconut and mint curry was a good contrast with the fish. This is a neighborhood joint. There is nothing hip or happening here but the food. No wine or beer but the waiter pointed out to the deli across the street where I found KIngfisher. The address is 143-06 45th Ave.
