Had a very tasty dish last night at Spices and one that didn't pull any punches in the heat factor either. It was ginger chicken, with basil, onions, I think there was some bamboo shoots in the mix as well.
The menu states (Very Spicy) and the waitress also lets you know that the dish is hot...and it definitely packed heat, but also had a very nice ginger flavor.
Also had a nice bowl of miso soup.
Palena and Indique get a majority of the Cleveland Park raves on this board, but for inexpensive Pan Asian Spices definitely has some good dishes.
