Spice I Am, in my memory, was the pioneer that really lifted Thai food in Sydney from the sometimes mediocre neighbourhood restaurants to something that people were talking about, excited about and lining up for. Soon followed by other great restaurants like Chat Thai and Home, and now having opened up a more upscale branch in Darlinghurst, their original location is still busy, with humble decor and a cash only policy.
I opted for a simple roast pork dish and was not exactly sure what I would get. It was perfectly tasty though for $18, a little on the small side. I’m always happy to come back here. The flavours are incredible.
