Tasting New Express Menu at Red Spice QV

Red Spice QV is a perennial favourite of ours and we visited recently by invitation to sample the new Spring menu.

What strikes us is the quality of the food, its freshness, and also big Asian flavours across the dishes. We think the Express menu is perfect for say city workers who have time constraints and want something extra above the norm, and at a reasonable price.
