Checked out Spices! in Fremont because I heard they are now open. They opened in Aug 2014 so I'm a bit late on going here. I've been to a few locations in SF and thought they were good. The Fremont location is kinda meh for me.
Tried them out Wed 11/19/14 around 5pm. Only one table was filled rest of the place was empty. Parking is tough in this strip mall - lots of other shops & marital arts class nearby.
Suppose to have many Hunan dishes & Sichuan too.
Free tea - from tea bags. I did like the tea.
spicy sliced lamb fried chili cilantro $14.99 - lots of thinly sliced lamb w/ tons of chili peppers & cilantro. Not spicy enough, paper-thin slices, not that good, just meh.
shredded pork wooden ear fungus bamboo garlic $10.99 - B. liked it ok, I don't like bamboo shoots. Pork tasted ok for me.
Flaming shelled shrimp & season chilies $16.99 - a bunch of large shelled shrimp - not cleaned and overcooked! Skip it.
Dry braised string beans $7.99 - I liked the string beans, just way too salty. Eat with lots of rice.
Steamed jasmine white rice $1.50 a small bowl charged per person.
Before tip our total $58.80, Charged it.
