Rosang Soul Food – A hidden gem from the North East


There is so much more to north eastern food than momos, noodles and spicy non vegetarian dishes. This is something that I have realised lately, as I began to explore this gem of a cuisine.

A rainy sunday lead to my cravings for some good NE food and as one of my friend had recommended me to try this place, I didn’t gave it a second thought and went ahead.11994404_10153077247364249_2118853938_n

Located in Green Park, near uphar cinema, Rosang Soul Food has a blend of dishes from the all the states of North East. It offers the ancient aromatic recipes that are made with fresh produce and with herbs and spices that are sourced directly from the NE region.

A soothing aura assails the moment one enters, and the beautiful photos of the NE capture the attention.

With hunger pangs kicking in, I asked the lady clad in traditional clothing to recommend me something to drink and a few dishes. I started with Thei-Tui, which is a seasonal fruit fizz with a hint of green chilli. The flavour of mango was very refreshing indeed.

For starters, I tried Chicken Dry Fry, which had thin chicken pcs, coated with NE herbs and deep fried and Nghui Ngosing, which is a fish minced and mixed with herbs and spices, wrapped in a banana leaf and then burnt.

The fish had a smoky flavour and was very unique. Both the starters were served along with a delicious tomato chutney and a mustard seed based chutney(my favourite). In mains, I ordered Aska Meh with Chaak Khao. Aska Meh is a chicken dish with seasonal herbs and green beans. I was very disappointed with the chicken as it was overcooked and hence, chewy. But the broth was comforting and absolutely delicious. It truly defined the term ‘soul food’. This combined with the manipuri red rice, which tasted somewhat like regular basmati rice, and the red tomato chutney, did wonders.

In desserts, I tasted the Chaak Hao Kheer and Sweet sticky Rice Cake. Both were mildly sweet and perfect for people who are not fan of sweet sweet desserts. Chaak Hao Kheer is basically a red rice kheer which has raisins. I enjoyed the sticky rice cakes more as compared to the cold rice pudding.

Overall, Rosang, which means God’s Gift is indeed a gift for all of us who want to taste the authentic food and beverage of the NE region of our country.
