The Spice Jammer

Spice Jammer specializes in East Indian food with an East African twist. It’s notably spicier than the usual Indian food you find in North America and uses mustard oil instead of the standard peanut oil. While they carry many familiar favourites, be sure to try their chicken or prawn curries, which use a special home-made spice blend that’s quite different from regular Indian. If you have dietary restrictions, you’ll be happy to know that Spice Jammer makes everything from scratch. They can easily whip up vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free alternatives that still capture the authentic East Indian taste.
