Nagaland’s Kitchen is a hidden gem located in the Uphaar Cinema Complex, Green Park. The place has a very rustic decor and an amazing playlist that adds to the ambiance. Around the winter season, Nagaland’s Kitchen Boasts of Smoked Delicacies. At Nagaland’s Kitchen, the smoked delicacies are prepared by Authentic Naga Chefs.
Naga cuisine is known for its exotic meats which are cooked with simple yet flavorful ingredients. The delicacies served are cooked in such a manner that one gets to taste a lot of herbs and leaves of exotic plants. The smoked meat is prepared by keeping the meat hanging above the fire in the kitchen for 2 weeks or longer.
I got a chance to visit this hidden gem called Nagaland’s Kitchen to try out the smoked delicacies which are made using the traditional recipes. We started off with the Prawn Amrosu Soup, which is a traditional Naga Rice Soup with Prawns. The Amrosu Soup is also available in Veg/Chicken/Pork variants. Next we tried out the Pork Ribs which were the Chef’s Special and served with a Raja Mircha Dip. The ribs were cooked to perfection with a juicy layer of fat and a thick layer of meat. The combination with the Raja Mircha dip was of course fantastic. In the appetizers we also had the Chicken with Dry Bamboo Shoot which was a flavourful combination of chicken cooked with bamboo shoot in some exotic Naga spices and of course some Raja Mircha.
In the main course we went ahead with the Nagaland’s Kitchen Special Smoked Pork Meal which is served with boiled rice, boiled vegetables, dal, rosep aon (mix veg cooked in Naga Herbs), prawn chutney and steamed fish. This meal in itself is very simple and healthy with not much of spices used. The Smoked Pork in this meal had a amazing flavor and the meat was cooked to perfection. For desserts we had the Mississippi Mud Pie which was served with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream
The overall dining experience at Nagaland’s Kitchen was excellent with some rare and authentic smoked delicacies on their menu this is the place to dine at if you love to explore new things. They also have some of the pickles up for sale at their restaurant. The pickles are available in Raja Mircha/ Chicken/Prawn/Pork variants.
