For me this is comfort food!
Northeastern part of India has unique food with mind blowing flavours. Yes, it is a acquired taste. But come on, we cannot experience such good in Chennai often!
Don’t miss the chance to experience some amazing food with unique flavours of the less spoken part of our beautiful country!
It is called the seven sisters cuisine at The Raintree, St. Mary’s Road, Chennai.
The food is excellent, made from the heart. Chef Aluaangma aka Aran has got many of the ingredients with him, since they are not easily available in Chennai. Chef Aluaangma has worked with many big brands, but when he realised how underestimated the food of his own region is, he decided to explore the length and breath of his home place and present us with the flavours of northeast.
We started with the finger millets soup. It has a creamy flavour and was full of soul.
The salad and starter’s and salads could not get more authentic the chives fritters, the dry prawn salad and the potato salad.
The main course is something that cannot be explained the Assamese fish curry made using seabass was amazing the Tripura pork curry was yummy the country chicken was full of flavour. I personally love the bamboo shoot flavour, I know, I know it’s an acquired flavour. I just love it!
They do have a wide variety of vegetarian food too!
The dessert was equally amazing, it was a perfect end to the most amazing dinner!
