Smoked delicacies

traditional Some authentic Naga dishes.

This place was started in September last year by Romeo Seth, who himself was born and brought up in Assam. He says, “I have grown up eating Naga food all my life. When I came to Bangalore, I realised that there are very few places that serve exclusive Naga food. This was the reason I opened this outlet here and the response has been very good.”

The decor is very simple, given the fact that it is a converted terrace, open on three sides and surrounded by bamboo paneling. Lampshades and framed Naga art and a few tables complete the setting. The people who man the kitchen too are from the North-East like Offa and Chuba who serve the customers the authentic Naga cuisine. There are a lot of items on the menu, that one will be spoilt for choice. As starters, one can order the steamed or fried momos in vegetable, chicken or pork varieties. One will not fail to notice that the filling of meat is not mince but actual pieces
of meat.

This coupled with an extra spicy green chilli chutney perfectly compliments the bland taste of momos.

Then there are the veg and non-veg thalis served with rice, Naga curry made with crushed potatoes and tomatoes, different types of boiled vegetables, mashed potato and bits of pork fried with shallots and green chillies. But you should try the food item that this part of the country is most famous for — the pork dishes. The way pork is cooked here is very different from the rest and you can savour the tenderness and flavour of the meat. One should especially try the ‘Smoked Pork with Yam’, Bamboo shoots or Palak Leaves’.

Then there are smoked varieties of chicken and fish too. Says Romeo, “Such smoked dishes are very rare to find elsewhere which makes it all the more liked by the customers.”

To add a special touch to the whole dining experience, they serve food in wooden cutlery. The place has its share of regulars. Says Aquina, who is from Shillong, “When my friends brought me here for the first time, I was pleasantly surprised to find a place that serves the same food that we get back home. The ambience also is so perfect that it reminds me of home.” Her friend says, “I have never eaten Naga food before this. But the place does serve brilliant food. Moreover, it is not expensive too which gives us all the more reason to come here often.” Contact 41732012.
