As the last days of summer slowly faded, it was time to say goodbye to our Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions Intern at Project Watershed. Jim and I joined staff and project consultants from Project Watershed for a celebratory lunch with Maya our UBC summer intern. As Maya is vegan, we decided to do Indian at the Spice Hut in Comox.

Maya rides her mother’s quarter century bicycle everywhere and I mean everywhere. She is absolutely fit and spent her weekends rappelling down mountain sides and hiking on the Island. The future is in good hands with young people like Maya leading the way.


Jim and I decided to share a traditional Indian lunch. We ordered Vegetarian Pakoras, Butter Chicken, Palak Paneer (a spinach dish with cottage cheese), Basmati Rice, and Garlic Naan Bread. You can order your food mild, medium or hot. We chose medium and medium mild. It was perfect.

We ate the pekoras as appetisers and shared with everyone at the table. Over the thirty-five years when I lived in Toronto I routinely ate Indian food and enjoyed it immensely. The Spice Hut on Comox Avenue in the Town of Comox is a great addition to the marvelous ethnic eating establishments in the Valley.


East Indian food is one of the world’s most unique cuisines and ranks high on my list for favourite foods to eat. The Spice Hut provides a wide variety of authentic Indian dishes. Both Jim and I thoroughly enjoyed the quality of the food and the size of the portions. Our bill for the two of us was just under $40.

This was a perfect place to take Maya and the Blind Taste Tester ranks the Spice Hut a 4.8 out of 5 for Comox Valley ethnic restaurants.
