Our Love Story
A Love Affair …
Nik and Cindy Minhas, Spicy Affair Indian Cuisine owners in Swedesboro, NJ, had a mission when they arrived here from Vancouver, Canada.
They came from a big city, yet fell in love with this friendly town nestled in the farmlands of fresh produce in South Jersey. They knew this would be a great place to raise their two sons and enjoy life. What they did not see, though, was much diversity in terms of different foods and the cultures they represented. They wanted to bring the exquisite flavors they grew up with to their new home.
Cindy was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. Of Indian descent, her mother taught her everything she knew about cooking Indian food and how to use spices to enhance, not overwhelm. While trained as an Early Childhood Educator, Cindy’s passion was food and fashion, and she always wanted a way to combine them both.
Nik, on the other hand, was born and raised in New Delhi, India, and made his mark in the financial world, having led business development and banking initiatives in several Fortune 500 companies. He, too, had a passion for being an entrepreneur and introduce his new hometown to some of the amazing Indian “street food” he grew up with.
