Food and Restaurants in North East

The North East region of India is well-known for its culinary traditions that spring from various tribes and cultures that are a huge part of it. Food in north east uses meat but also focuses on fresh and flavourful ingredients such as bamboo shoots and the fiery bhoot jholokia chillies. Most northeast restaurants cook food in mustard oil which makes the flavours more intense. What’s also interesting is that most places to eat in north east focus on using simple methods and minimal ingredients and yet their dishes pack quite the punch.

Some of the famous dishes that you can come across while exploring the culinary traditions in north east are the smoked pork with bamboo shoot, narasingha masor jhol, a fish curry cooked in curry leaf paste, and the rather pungent Iromba, a Manipuri dish which has dried fermented fish that is cooked with boiled vegetables.
