best restaurant in hamilton!

i know the owner & eat at spice often, so you could say i'm a little biased!

always fresh, high quality ingredients, with local when possible... owner has large garden & often features or includes homegrown produce in the menu!

they don't do the sushi rolls much anymore, but they have a thai tofu satay that is good, this comes with asian slaw that is yummy! slaw also available on it's own, i like to toss a side of the asian slaw on top of the basic house salad with habanero vinaigrette & the thai peanut sauce, this is what i have pictured.... with honorable mention to the delicious black bean jalapeno chili in the background!

sesame noodle salad is excellent, & i think there is a hummus platter in addition to edamame in the appetizers... the beer & wine is top notch with local brews on tap, pretty good coffee too... my 7 year old likes to order the "buttered noodles, without the butter just tossed in oil, TRIPLE order please" ... yah, he can put down the noodles!

sometimes i sub rice if available for the noodles in their dishes, but i have to confirm with server that rice is vegan that day without chicken stock... also, there is a curry dish with noodles & tofu that is unfortunately NOT vegan becuz the curry paste has fish in it...

regardless, spice of life has the best tasting & largest selection of vegan options of anyplace in the valley, & the staff knows how to keep the vegans happy since i've been going there for over 10 years!
