Spices! now has a location in Fremont - Report w/ PIC

hhc | Nov 23, 201411:42 PM     1

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.

We got:

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.
