NORTH-EAST INDIAN FOOD STORE- This store is located at Anepalya 10th D Cross. The store usually opens in the evening around 6:00 pm and is open until 9:00 pm . They have good variety of dried foods, but limited fresh vegetables. For those who wish to drop by the store , do check via a call if they are open, because their timings are uncertain.

If you stay around Ejipura then you must be very familiar with this store. It has a large variety of vegetables and food items all the way from north-east India. I have given the full address on the picture to make it easy for you to locate the store.
There is one more store in Ejipura named as ‘Fresh organic point’ . The store is very close to the fish market. Here are some pictures from the store.
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.
College days and my love for Shingju– I remember during my hostel days (most mates were from Manipur) all the girls would sit on the floor, head to head gathered around a newspaper full of Shingju as evening snacks. Those days almost all 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 products in the city! If you are in Bangalore and planing to invite your friends to try some of the north-eastern dishes, check out these stores for the supplies!
Don’t forget to share this post with your North- East friends staying in Bangalore. 🙂
