Spice | Slang | To kitchen staff, spice, or “floor spice”, is not something to cook with. It’s a synonym for dirt or grease or a messy work station. But like all good slang it has evolved to include a broader audience and now means anything that is sketchy or questionable.

Usage: “Dude, you won’t believe it but Tom actually went home with that super spicy chick we met at Gringo…”
