We kicked off lunch with Pork Khorisa, a delicious dish of diced pork in skewers. The pork was perfectly cooked, soft and moist. The smoky flavour elevated its taste and made it a good way to begin the meal with.

Up next was Chicken with black sesame cooked in bamboo hollow. this dish incorporated a major ingredient in North East cuisine and that is bamboo. Although the bamboo was not present for eating, it indeed left its subtle flavours over the succulent chicken pieces cooked with grinded black pepper and black sesame. What was interesting about the dish was that the pepper did not aggravate its spiciness but gave it just the right amount of heat. It can very well be eaten by anyone who doesn't like spicy food as well.

The dish that won our hearts out of the entire lot was the Mutton with Green Papaya. For mutton lovers, this cannot be given a miss. With the flavours of raw papaya and the softness of the mutton pieces, this dish deserves to be on your plate.

The menu goes one notch higher with the exotic preparation of Duck with potatoes. For those who like to experiment with meat or like to eat duck, this item would be a must to check out.

Each of the items could be had with plain white rice or roti as per preference. We tried it with a little bit of both and felt its versatility when the flavours worked well with both kinds of sides.

We wrapped up the meal with Narikol Laru,a less sweet version of Bengal's own coconut nadu; and Pani Pitha, wrap which was again another take on Bengal's pitha with added jaggery that lent the dish its minimal sweetness.
