North East Kitchen, Egmore

North East Kitchen was in my wish list for quite a long time. When we were looking for lunch options in and around Egmore, this place was our first choice. The gang landed here for lunch last Saturday. Located in the Wellingdon Estate complex, this is a small place with 6-8 tables. We ordered lots of stuffs and we had to wait for a long time to taste the food.

We started off with pork momo, chicken momo and beef fried with chillies. Beef was juicy and spicy and it vanished quickly. Meat in the momo filling was flavourful and tasted delicious. But I felt the dough to be too thick in the momos.

Beef Thukpa was mind blowing. Crispy shredded beef in a lip smackingly delicious broth was so good along with noodles and veggies. Every sip was bursting with flavours. Beef noodle was a tad bit oily but damn tasty. Again the meat was tender and juicy. Kimchi Jigae aka pork with kimchi was yummy. I just tasted the stew alone. It was served with many accompaniments including rice, roasted peanuts, sprouts salad, pickled veggies and so on. Kiddo had chicken fried rice. If you like Japanese rice you will love this one. Short, plump and slightly sticky rice was very good. Tangsuyuk otherwise called the crispy fried pork with veggies was our last order. We expected crispy pork to be served in a bed of veggie sauce. But there were more pineapples and apple than veggies (zucchini and carrots). Neverthless, the crispy pork was good and I kinda liked the fruity base :P

Service was slow. But once they started serving the food, they maintained the flow. Paid 2810 for all these along with one extra portion of beef fried with chillies, beef noodle and om rice. Given the taste, quality and quantity it was absolutely worth the money.
