This shop is newly opened and is located in Anepalya 10th cross. They are open throughout the week, but mostly around evening.

Also, there is one more store in Ejipura 7th cross RA Road, but sorry I couldn’t get a picture.
North-East food is exotic and one needs to have an acquired taste to fall in love with it. How did I like North-East Food? Growing up in the North-East part of India, I have always loved their exotic range of dishes: Bamboo shoot with pork, Eromba, fermented soybeans, king chilly chutney to name few. Other than these , I love shingju, a typical Manipur salad-type dish.
I remember during my PG days (most mates were from Manipur) all the PG girls would sit on the floor, head to head gathered around a newspaper full of Shingju. Most of us would get carton full of food items from home, because it was the only way to access them at the time. However, today, you can get most of the North-East food items in the city! If you are in Bangalore and want to get some of the North-East food items go drop by these shops. 🙂
Don’t forget to share this post with your North- East friends staying in Bangalore. 🙂
