Favorite Places: Spice Root

February 20, 2009 at 9:14 am

Seems to me I never eat Indian food in places that one would expect.  The last time in memory I can recall having authentic Indian cuisine was in Wales 3 years ago, homemade by an individual who was hosting members of the mission team I was working with.  Every time I smell curry, I think of Wales.  Indian food in Wales is about as expected as Indian food in northwest Massachusetts, I would think, but expectations are often false.

Spice Root is located in downtown Williamstown, MA (home of Williams College and the Clark Art Institute).  My Man and I ventured there because it was recommended to us by one of his friends who is, reliably, Indian.  According to him, the food is something like 75% authentic and 25% what Americans want to eat.  Honestly, I wouldn’t know and I wouldn’t say that’s necessarily a bad thing.  Weekday lunch is a $8.95 all you can eat buffet and it was delicious.  Rice, naan, chicken tikka masala, mulligatawny soup, aloo gobi (potatoes and eggplant).  It was everything I think Indian food should be and my stomach and I left very happy.  the rest of the menu looks great as well, I definitely plan to head back.
