With time, restaurants like the Dzukou (Hauz Khas), Rosang (Safdarjung), Nagaland’s Kitchen (Green Park) and North East Flavours (Green Park) emerged.
The menu in these restaurants includes dishes from Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Meghalaya, Sikkim, Assam, Tripura and Arunachal Pradesh. Even though each state has a unique palate, what makes this cuisine a favourite of many foodies is the delicious light food that is served here!
