Ten Second Takeaway

For pork lovers, momo lovers and people who just love food, the Nagaland food stall is paradise. And it’s open-air to boot.

The menu here is actually pretty vast, and the more you look at it, the more you want to order. We suggest you blindly ask for the Bamboo Shoot Pork Curry, and steamed rice to go with it. The rice comes with Raja Mirchi, btw, making the dish all the more hot. #LBBTip: Do not try this if you don’t like how bamboo shoot tastes. You could try the Pork Anishi or the Pork Raja Mirchi instead.

The service here is pretty slow, and the food is bound to take a while to come. Order chicken or pork momos for while you wait, either steamed or fried. You may have to ask for extra chutney though, if you’re a double {okay, sometimes even triple} dipper like us.

Spice jet

We ordered the Jumbo Prawns on a whim, and were very pleasantly surprised. They were perfectly crisp and golden on the outside, and just right on the inside. Another popular dish here is the Smoked Pork Chilli—try this if, and only if, you have a high tolerance for spicy food. Get the fruit beer {or a Coke} to wash all this down with; you’ll need it.

PS: There’s plenty for your vegetarian friends and family too {including soups, noodles and rice}.
