On My Way To Siam Reap...Crab Meat And Khmer Bananas


Feast From Far East...Cambodia Part-3

Written by: on

It was 8 o'clock in the morning and i was heading towards the bus station to catch my bus for Siam Reap ..Famous for UNESCO world heritage site "Angkor Wat" Temples ....After seeing famous Hollywood movie "Tomb Raider" i always wanted to visit this place.
 On my way to bus station i saw street food full of weird fried animals/insects...i wanted to have a breakfast first before get into the bus but i did not gather courage to enter any of the restaurant after seeing so much of weird food..though I've been travelling in Asian countries for so many times and i am used of seeing unusual food.. but this was my first visit to Cambodia and i never seen Bizarre food in such a huge quantity, almost each and every restaurant entrance was full of hanging Fried Rats and Tarantulas and animals which I've seen live on discovery channel..in Cambodia I've seen fried version of them....anyway i dint want to disrespect anyone one's food culture but the thing was, i was not able to get out of typical Indian mentality. 

And then finally Ray Of Light.. i saw a beautiful lady selling chicken,pork, loads of different types of fish, crabs,noodles and some local sweet dishes....so I've decided to have a breakfast at that place before heading towards the Siam Reap.
 I ordered traditional Cambodian Crab meat Bowl soup with noodle and Khmer Deep Fried Bananas as a sweet dish. 

 A crab Noodle dish with rice noodles, loads of vegetables and crab meat balls all mixed in orange colored broth was super hot and was looking too yummy...one of the notable feature of this dish was its orange color of the broth. then there was some fish cake ,some crab meat, potatoes, tomatoes,basil and some green beans in it.. Buy me a coffeeBuy me a coffee broth taste was light fishy, meaty with flavor of basil , then i added some fish and tamarind sauce in it, some spicy sauce then the lady told me add one sauce which was very pungent smelling which i simply denied to add.. that big chunks of crab meat balls along with rice noodles and orange broth was heaven...a must try. 
 Then the time was for some sweet ..so i ordered deep fried bananas one of the traditional sweet dish of Cambodia.. made with some batter ,coconut flakes,rice , eggs all coated around banana and then deep fried into the oil. 
 That Banana sweet was really yummy had extra crispy chunk from the outside and then soft , sweet banana inside...that as really delicious. so i finished my breakfast and headed towards the my bus to Siam reap..... Hope you enjoyed reading my this blog post..see ya soon in next blog post about Siam reap.

Written by: on

It was almost 9 o'clock in the night and i was hungry....so i went straight to phnom penh's "Central Market"...you can find variety of Cambodian food here in central market.

 There was a small restaurant in central market ...don't remember the name cause it was in Cambodian language... that local joint was full of local peoples and i am the only non-Cambodian was there.

 I ordered "Khmer Food Platter", food cups were made up of Banana leaves served in traditional Bamboo basket.

 

That basket was Some sweet corn with local spices in it, two dumpling (1 pork & 1 with some veggies), Rice cake with some fish gravy (That is not something we hear together that often)..but that fish gravy was really awesome. Rice cake was made with rice,beans and some pork in it.....outside was really crunchy and inside was full of beans and pork in it ... Rice Cake with Fish gravy..that's something really different but amazingly tasty i had after a long time

 Dumpling was deep fried with pork and veggies in it...served with some awesome spicy local sauce..they were like " chicken wantons" we get in Chinese restaurants in India... overall a must try dish... 

Then i went to nearby by pub ..had nice chilled local beer called "Angkor" ....after having really good time in the pub it was already 11:30 in the night ..so i decided to have some food...so on my way to my hostel at stopped at local joint Named "Nimchuk" ..hope i spelled it correctly . 

 I ordered " Amok Fish" .....this is one of the most famous dish Of Cambodia... wrapped in banana leaves.

 Amok is a local Mekong river fish wrapped in banana leaves and steamed for almost one hour with some local spicy curry ...served with some veggies, salads and some rice. Taste was not fishy at all.. it has a nice flaky texture ...soft and juicy was steamed perfectly with the flavor of local spicy curry...perfect combination of fish,curry and rice ....whenever in Cambodia i suggest must try this fish with rice... cheers..

Food And Bizarre Food...Introduction (Feast Form Far East Part-1)

I arrived in combodaia's capital city of Phnom Penh,  i checked into one of the bag packers favorite Hostel "Mad Monkey" ... based in central part of the city for just INR-600/- per day..address is given below

MAD MONKEY
BUILDING NO-26, STREET 302, BKK1
PHENOM PENH
CAMBODIA
 This Noisy, energetic city was once Asia's Largest market, this place has everything, you can shop for clothes,buy some fresh food, jewelry, electronics and off course Bizarre food.
So much variety of Bizarre Food " Deep Fried Rice Field Rats" "Huge Crispy Tarantulas".. though i never tried them in my entire tour of Cambodia....to be very frank i'm failed to gather courage  to eat them.

Cambodian cusine is known for their unusal food,it would be nearly immpossible to describe the identity of combodian cusine and there is a reson for that.
From 1975 To 1979 there was the "Khmer Rouge"  regime in Cambodia,  was the worst time for Cambodian people, Cambodian people had a very hard time, they don't have anything to eat  so they never cared what they eat, they only want to survive for that they made every animal, Insects edible...... so after end of "Khmer Rouge" regime they included all of them in Cambodian cuisine.

Trust me Cambodian food is not at all that bizarre as shown in Tv shows.. people are completely clueless who thinks Cambodian food culture is not developed, its not good...trust me Cambodian food is mind blowing, there is not much written on Cambodian food because of a language problem of Cambodian people but now new generation has started of Cooking and writing about Authentic Cambodian Food, so food culture in Cambodia is in emerging stage.
So in this Food blog series " Feast From Far East" i will share some mind blowing Authentic Cambodian food to pamper your taste buds.... so do subscribe my blog for Tasty, Authentic food trip of Cambodia.

Phuket....(Beyond The Boundaries Of Taste Part-4)

continued from part-3, Click on the link below to read part-3

http://foodieonroad.blogspot.com/2018/06/one-night-in-bangkok.html

we decided to have must try food here in Phuket, some Thai food is so delicious that want to hop on your motorbike and drive straight to the Thailand immediately.
let's get started.
As soon as we entered in the restaurant we saw some nice "Pork satay" getting grilled was 
smelling awesome because  it has been marinated in some kind of Thai curry and served with peanut sauce,there's nothing that goes better with some nice salty pork satay and some peanut sauce together....Heaven
Then we ordered "Egg Noodles" which is called as "Khao Soi" in local language, its a northern Thai noodle curry soup with chicken.
The famous egg noodles are made with some rice flour and egg so it looks yellow, plump and beautiful.
Then there was a huge pot full of boiling chicken, it was boiling in coconut milk,local spices ,chillis and giant pieces of chicken.
They served egg noodles with that boiling chicken and curry with fried noodles as toppings so they have got both versions of the noodle in the dish, they have like the normal juicy version of noodles at the bottom and then the fried version on top for more crunchy texture.
Lots of people were coming at that place for breakfast and it was easy to see why? like our breakfast was the most beautiful breakfast i have ever seen.
we started our breakfast with "Pork Satay" . sweet,salty ,crispy, creamy and flavorful pork with delicious peanut sauce dipping was really awesome. That peanut sauce was really really amazing.
Then chicken egg noddles with fried noodles on the top, that fried noodles was so crunchy and tasty that those fried noodles alone can be a really good snacks.
we mixed our noodles with some lime , onions and little bit of some local sour pickle cabbage, Chicken was super tender, juicy and  delicate. 

Noodles with some fried noodles and chicken together...man that was the whole new level of Noodle soup i ever had... little bit heavy, very light flavors, chicken was amazingly tender as it was boiling in chilli paste and coconut milk... it was spicy but not overly spicy as other Thai dishes, you get true flavors of chilli without overly intense hotness of it.
Thing i like most about this dish was the texture... that fried noodles were adding awsome crunchiness in the dish....
Must try when in Thailand............

One Night In Bangkok...(Beyond The Boundaries Of Taste Part-3)

continued from part-2, Click on the link below to read part-2


it was 8 p.m in Bangkok and we were  hungry so we decided to visit Bangkok's  famous night market.
we decided to visit one of the best night market of Bangkok "Rot Fai Market"  in Srinakarin

 










Egg Fried Squid :-


First we tried Fried thai Egg Fried squid which was looking so delicious ,pieces of Calamari was really tender and delicate like egg white with some cabbage was smelling really good.Taste was like cross between egg and fish and that fishy taste was really unpleasant but its just taste like tender piece of fish, texture was very smooth and silky.. overall an average dish...




Deep Fried Crab:-
Then there was "Deep fried Crab" ,the dish  was not looking good at all  just by looking at it but trust me that was the best deep fried crab i ever had.
crab meat was juicy and some taste of lemon grass in it, i never eaten crab shell in my entire life but here whole creature was deep fried served with sweet and sour sauce dipping....man that shell was so crispy and tasty,this dish is little messy to eat but recommended  if you like crabs.




Salted Grilled Fish:-
Then we tried our hands on "Whole Thai Steamed and Grilled Fish "
The way it  cooked was the whole fish was covered in salt so  that the whole fish was  kind of steamed inside its own body.
White flesh of that fish was flaky, flavorful and juicy with all the flavors packed into that with little seasoning and salt which they used to cook fish and served with some pepper and vinegar sauce, In addition to that sweet, succulent, flaky fish, that sauce was giving dimension by adding spicy ,lemony flavor enhancing the deliciousness of the fish.
Overall delicious fish i had in a long time ....strongly recommended.

Eat Like A Local ..(Beyond The Boundaries Of Taste Part-2)

continued from part-1, Click on the link below to read part-1

http://foodieonroad.blogspot.com/2018/06/arrival-in-bangkok.html
So we started walking towards the Street food Market near to our hotel in Bangkok.. then we saw one lady selling fried chicken, so we have decided to try our hands on Thai fried chicken.

Thai Fried Chicken (Gai-Tod)



Trust me Forget Macdonald's or KFC that was the best fried chicken we ever had, thai fried chicken or mainly known as (Gai-Tod) in Thai is not to miss when in Bangkok.
Fried chicken was  light, deep fried garlic  on it, crispy skin that crackles with every bite. Hiding beneath that skin is tender juicy flesh served with chili sauce.

Then we moved on to another stall and tried Thai Grilled Pork.
In the world of natural, real food lovers, pork is a contentious subject 😉 on one side, you’ve got people zealously arguing against pork because it’s not kosher or halal,and On the other hand, you’ve got traditional cultures like Thailand for whom pork is a dietary mainstay providing meat and cooking fat. 
Well lets not get into all this 😃

Thai Grilled Pork (moo-ping)


Thai grilled pork, or moo ping as locals would call it, is a definite must try for every carnivorous traveler.These quick snacks are cheap and packed with full of flavors. It will fill you up for several hours so you have the energy to keep going.This amazing grilled pork treat cost was  just 30 THB
Succulent pieces of pork meat with fat are skewered together and grilled on top of hot coals. The melting fat dripping on the coal creates a thick blanket of aromatic smoke that, logically, should drive you away but in reality, lures you even more.

These Thai pork skewers are marinated in a sweet-salty concoction, and when placed on the grill, receive an additional smoky flavor from the burning coals.

The barbecued meat is good enough as it is, but slathered with the homemade spicy sauce, it becomes pure heaven. Moo ping can be enjoyed stick after stick or paired with traditional sticky rice for a more filling meal. Make sure to consume your moo ping hot off the grill when the flavors are most alive and the meat actually melts in your mouth.

To Be Continued.....

Arrival in Bangkok..(Beyond The Boundaries Of Taste Part-1)

Hello Foodies,
It was almost 6 hrs. journey to Thailand from Mumbai airport, we arrived at Bangkok's swarnabhumi airport at 6 A.M.the airport was modern and clean, relatively spacious with a number of different terminals, and I think they’ve done a pretty good in handling passengers efficiently (although there can be long lines at times).

Bangkok, a world class global city has so much to offer ,Home to one of the world’s most spectacular skylines , Bangkok is a densely packed city where you’ll discover fresh wet markets slotted between skyscrapers and delicious food nearly everywhere you look.
We checked in to our hotel room and i had a Power Nap for 2 hrs.,as soon as i woke up i decided to have  some local street food. Why? because someone said that "key to enjoy any destination’s traditional cuisine is to eat like a local, to eat where locals eat, or even better, to get invited to a local’s home and be served a home-cooked meal" in our case getting invited by "Locals" was not possible so i decided to visit local street food where i can taste authentic Thai food ,but some of us from my group were not familiar with Thai food (Because of strong smell of raw, fermented seafood and sauces) :-)  so me and one of my friend from kolkata decided to have a local street food and rest decided to visit nearby Indian food restaurant.

Street food stalls can be found at practically every corner in Bangkok,street food is an important part of Bangkok’s rich culinary heritage and it also lets you interact with the locals so you are afforded a more enriching experience. Street food stall is the place where you get traditional Thai food exact way locals have been preparing.
Thai cuisine is also heavily influenced by Indian spices and flavours, which is evident in its famous green, red, and yellow curries. However, it would be nearly impossible to confuse an Indian curry with one from Thailand. Although Thai curry incorporates many Indian spices in its pastes, it still manages to maintain its own unique flavour with the addition of local spices and ingredients, such as Thai holy basil, lemongrass, and Thai ginger
Other influences on Thai cooking may be found in the countries near or surrounding Thailand, such as Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Burma, and Malaysia. Such plentiful and vast influences combine to create the complex taste of present-day Thai cooking.

To Be Continued......

Beyond The Boundaries Of Taste ... Thailand

Hello Foodies,
Did you enjoy my earlier food blog posts? If you haven’t, do check it out and let me know your feedback.
Today's blog Post is about my new upcoming food blog series "Beyond the boundaries of taste ... Thailand".

I am not the kind of person who will go to another country and then eat only Indian food. If I wanted to eat Indian food, then I would prefer to have it in India. I would love to try new cuisines, new food palates and I believe that it is an integral part of a travelling experience.
I've been to Thailand many times , for me, Thailand is a place of extremes. It’s functioning chaos in all its inexplicable glory. Above all, however, one thing is certain: Thai people are united in their passion for Thai food.
Hope you will enjoy my one incredible culinary journey through one of South-East Asia’s most seductive food cultures.






Thank You
Foodie On Road

Goan-Chin..... Goan Days (Part 3)

Being a Foodie tasting new and different cuisines has always been a very important part of my food journeys.
It has been almost 6 months In GOA, gone were the days when goan cusine facinataed me,so i decided to try my hands on Indian Chinese food.
One of my office colleagues told me about Panjim's Famous Chinese/Asian restaurant "GoenChin" so i decided to visit that pace along with my colleague.
Trust me this place was not easy to find, situated in the heart of panjim nearest landmark is panjims famous mahalaxmi temple ,this hotel is one of the oldest hotels in the city.
restaurant was very cozy and comfortable but little bit noisy ( obviously because of good food :-) ).

. so we ordered chilled beer along with "Prawns fried wontons" and "Thai Chicken"
fried wontons were Chinese version of Indian "Samosa"  (Just Kidding) were crispy, crunchy, too much tasty and full of fresh prawns served with tangy, sweet and spicy sauce, those Fried Wontons were irresistibly good.







"Thai Chicken" was grilled half portion of chicken made using authentic Thai herbs like lemon grass and rice powder (Thank god no fish sauce) and soya sauce was dark colored due to major use of soya sauce in it,
 each and every juicy, tender,fresh piece of chicken was with amazing favor of garlic,black pepper and punch of soya sauce,eating bites of chicken along with that wonderful tangy tamarind chili dipping sauce can hardly get better.












Then we ordered our main course  "Beijing Chicken Sauce" and "Bamboo chicken fried rice" but before tht we have ordered "chicken Tom Yum" soup.

I must say one of the best Tom Yum soup i ever had in my life ,soup was mixture of garlic, lemongrass, ginger, lime leaves, coriander, chillies and chicken, which was briefly stir-fried with chicken stock. that was "Tangy" "Hot" flavor in the form of clean and aromatic soup.





 "Beijing Chicken Sauce"   was both "tender" and "crispy" just the way I like it and topped with tasty sauce and sesame seeds was absolutly out of this world.













"Bamboo chicken fried rice" was perfectly stir-fried and full  flavors of bamboo slices, mushrooms and was  irresistibly delicious.













Just WOW.... one of the best Chinese food i ever had in my life. 5 out 5 for this restaurant ...a must visit place

And Lastly before i go i would like to thank you guys for reading my blog, if you like my blogs do  subscribe my blog  by entering your mail id at the bottom of this blog and for desktop users top right of this blog, also you Can ).If you have any tips or suggestion do let me know in comment section, would love to hear from you guys.

Piggy Goan Day's (Part 2)


When we think of Goa , the first thing that comes to our mind are the Sea, Beautiful beaches, church and food.. in my earlier blog about Goa I shared about authentic local Goan Seafood thali ..in this blog im going to share the wonderful gems from the treasure trove of Goan Cuisine which is influenced by the Portuguese.

“Goan Pork Sorpotel”  “Pork Vindaloo”
Pork dishes are not easily available in our area, so all we use to do and still doing is hunting a “Wild Boar” in every Rainy season and preparing with our typical Black gravy Masala or else try “Bacon” in 5 star hotel which I never liked. I always wanted to have something different in pork and I knew Goa is the best place to have the same.

So one fine day I got transferred to goa.. thanks to the local property broker I got a beautiful flat near Miramar Beach opp. to famous club of goa “Clube Tennis De Gaspar Dias” (Amazing Food).
Next to my apartment there was a Bar called “Publix Bar”  Owned by my local catholic  friend  where I used to go almost daily to have a chilled beer after hectic work schedule. There I tried my 1st goan pork dish “Pork Vindaloo”

This dish represents a confluence of the indian and Portugese cuisines made with pork meat, vinegar and garlic.
Preparation was awesome soft, fatty pork meat cubes were marinated with local spices and vinegar for 24 hours.
The dish was neither a fiery hot or nor a curry, pork meat was tender, juicy and tangy due to vinegar,  all the flavors were meld together due to overnight marination.

Overall an awesome dish to try in Goa.



Few day later I’ve been invited by other local goan friend for dinner at his residence and there I tried “Pork Sorpotel” …man that was the best food I ever had.
Pork sorpotel was made with pork belly,liver and heart , all three are my favorite parts in any edible animal J
Dish was deep reddish brown colored due to red Kashmiri chillies and brown pork liver served with freshly steamed rice,
Dish was slightly sour due to toddy vinegar but yet spicy with thick gravy. Full of local goan masala and tangy tamrind.
pork meat was soft, fatty full of tasty spices , Liver was so soft and juicy was melting in my mouth….as I was taking a bite of that fatty meat, there was a burst of tasty flavors in my mouth …later I asked my friend about this he said that the Goans really believe in keeping the cooked dish aside for atleast a couple of days to allow the flavors to blend and penetrate into the meat and spices and vinegar act like a preservative …wow …just awesome.
Truly a fantastic rich flavored dish which makes your taste buds craves for more.

P.S- I’ve tried these dishes in local hotels but my experience was really bad ..so would suggest to try these dishes at any local catholic goans home… cheers

 And Lastly before i go i would like to thank you guys for reading my blog, if you like my blogs do  subscribe my blog  by entering your mail id at the bottom of this blog and for desktop users top right of this blog, also you Can ).If you have any tips or suggestion do let me know in comment section, would love to hear from you guys.

Fishy Goan Day's (Part 1)


Hello And whats Up People?
 “Panjim”, capital of “GOA”,one of the beautiful And most clean city of india . Maxed out with colonial architecture and unique Goan Cusine. Goan cuisine is a fusion of flavours from its Hindu and Portuguese heritage.
A day strated of with Goa’s most famous breakfast “Bhaji Pav”,  and that too at my favorite canteen at panjim Gymkahna, Campal opp. to my old office where I used to have breakfast and chai almost everyday.
This dish is also known as “Patol Bhaji” is prepared with dried white or green peas that are hydrated, boiled and cooked in a spicy watery gravy with potatoes. Relished with pao (bread)  and often accompanied with sukhi bhaji (potato bhaji).. I used word spicy but this dish is not spicy at all. (Most of the Goans dont like spicy food).
Afternoon I planned to have luch at“Anandashram”old panjim ,18th june road ,famous for Fish thali  very few tourists knows about this place, so mostly you will find local goans here and that’s the reason you will get awesome Goan fish thali with reasonable price, not like other tourist hotels that full of tourists and way highly priced. But before that I wanted to have a chilled beer but “Anandashram” dosent serve liquor so I went out to one of my favorite bar in panjim “Watson” opp. to municipal gardens panjim A beautiful place to relax ,Cool decor with nice rustic look.
So I ordered Beer with “Tisrya Sukka” (Dry Masala Clams) my all time favorite.
Clams dry is full of less spicy,tangy and little sweet goan masala and soft bonless meat inside, And on top of that it was soft,succulent and fresh as hell.
So I finshed my beer and went straight to “ Anandashram” (Remember in  most of the goan hotels they serve lunch till 3p.m. only and also fish thali is available in daytime for lunch only and not for dinner)
I ordered Spacial Fish thali , Thali was full of bright white freshly steamed rice, Chonak (Red snapper) rava fry, Surmai (King fish curry), prawns curry, fried kingfish, crab curry, coconut and dried baby shrimp salads and Solkadhi (Digestive Drink).
Red snapper was one of the tastiest fish I ever had…big flat chunk of fish friend with rava mixed with goan masala. Super crispy outside and soft,fresh,juicy inside .
King Fish curry was tangy, reddish, curry made up using tamarind ,coconut milk and goan masla was tastes awesome with fluffy steamed rice and some dry shrimps in it…man that was so delicious.

Then there was a crab curry  was made from grounded coconut, coriander and dry mixed roasted spices, which were added to crabs in it. One of the biggest headaches of this dish is to break the shell of crab but thanks to the owner who provided special instrument and spoons to break the shell.
Kingfish Fry …name says it all. Kingfish or surmai deep fried with goan recheado masala and rice flour .
Fish was crispy outside and too soft , juicy to the max with some chili powder and some tamarind flavors in it.
Prawns was made with same curry used for fish but curry was little creamy and fresh prawns in it.
There were some veggies also served in that dish but ive not tried.
Finaly I ended up drinking sour digestive called solkadhi wich is good for burping after having tummy full of fish and rice J

And Lastly before i go i would like to thank you guys for reading my blog, if you like my blogs do  subscribe my blog  by entering your mail id at the bottom of this blog and for desktop users top right of this blog, also you Can ).If you have any tips or suggestion do let me know in comment section, would love to hear from you guys.

This restaurant  make one of the best Biryanis in this city.
And I came here in the afternoon  because this place actually sells out, so I ordered Butter Mutton seekh Kabas and  special Mutton Dum Biryani. The way Biryani is made in Solapur  it's really different than other places,
First they served Mutton seekh kabas, kababs was looking nice and Moist Full of green Masala In it.


That kabab was covered in spices and loads of butter was little bit crispy outside and juicy and tangy inside is one of the best seekh kababs I ever had with yogurt and Mint chutney. I would love come again to solapur   just for this Seekh kabab alone.

Then they served main course “Mutton Biryani”  this biryani actually has three layers ,top is covered with basmati rice With fried chopped onions and mint ,Middle is full of Local saoji masala (Essence of biryani) and then at the bottom is full of  Mutton.

Rice in biryani was so fluffy and aromatic mixed with tasty masala and mutton flavor in it. The flavor of mutton seemed changing evrytime when I chew it. Mutton was fatty, little crispy outside and nice juicy, moist and full of masla flavors inside.
Mutton was so moist and crispy that every time I was taking a bite it was melting in my mouth.they serve Mutton gravy And yogurt with onions in it  along with biryani and trust me  that adds heavenly flavoers in biryani.

Spicy....Tasty.. "SOLAPUR" (Part-1)

Solapur Surrounded by "Telangana" and "Karnataka" is a city with multi-linguistic and multi-cultural features.Solapur has a mixture of Marathi, Kannada, Telgu, and Muslim peoples.
Food of Solapur is Influenced by this mixed culture and i must say this is one of the best Veg and Non-veg food destination of Maharashtra.
People say Solapuri food is very "Spicy" But its not true.


Best place to start your day in solapur with breakfast is at " Sudha Idali Gruha" There are loads of  hotels like "Kamaths" and other who serve south indian breakfast  but i will not recommend them. This place (Sudha) Is just awesome. Known for tasty and mouth watering Crispy "Dosas"  and "Wada's,"  "Idali"s" light as air and soft as cotton and off course unlimited tasty "Sambar and "Chutny" , in the end go for "Bread Maska " (Bread Butter) with "Masala chai, they daily prepare fresh butter  (Maska) as smooth as Silk not to miss at all.

Address:-Near Hotel Rajmahal, Saat Rasta, Solapur - 413001, Opposite Samaj Kalyan Kendra

Solapuri food is influenced by its mixed culture and you will find best and unique Non-Veg dishes here
Solapur is home to a large community of Savjis and you will find loads of "Savji Mutton" hotels around the city...but all are not as good as few i mentioned below. please note Nagpuri saoji and solapuri saoji both are different dishes, Napuri saoji is very (Too) Spicy where as solapuri is not at all that spicy.
First To start with

Shravan Saoji Hotel:-Address: 4-B, Sindagi Complex,Old Employment Chowk, Railway Lines, Solapur.. Opp. Kamath's

One of the oldest food joint of solapur situated in the heart of city known for their below mentioned dishesh
Khari Boti-
Lamb/goat meat cooked in loads of salt,turmeric,some onions and very less amount of spicy masala perfect for kids or people who prefer less spicy meat i bet you will not regret having one.














Green Mutton:
Lamb goat meat cooked  with Loads of coriander, Pudina  and local green masala... the unique dish of this hotel ..please note this is not regular green mutton which we get everywhere in india, its totally diffrent and far better










Mutton Lonache (Achari/pickle):-
Lots of people thinks that this is a side dish  made and preserved like pickle(Achar), no its not like that .

Its a main course dish freshly cooked in Masala which we use to make pickle, this masala gives that unique tangy and spicy taste to Mutton (Meat)
   













Park Savji:-
Address:-Shop No 1, Park Stadium Complex, Park Chowk Road, Muraraji Peth, Solapur 

This is also on of the best Saji mutton hotel famous foe below mentioned dishes

Saoji Mutton/Chicken Masala:-

This is the Spicy dish of solapur made of load of Saoji masla full of coconut with full on red curry... dish looks spicy but not that spicy as it looks.. so dont worry and enjoy :-)














Kheema Unde (Meat Balls)

This is also one of unique dish of solapur, Lamb/Goat minced meat Balls serve Dry or in curry mixed with local saoji masala










Khan Chacha:-
Address:-3/2, Hyderabad Road, National Highway 9, New Rangraj Nagar, Solapur
This Place is a perfect blend of Muslim and Marathi culture known for  below mentioned dishes 

Vazadi Fry (Goat Intestine curry/dry):-
Goat/lamb Intestine is used to prepare "Vazadi Fry" it taste really awesome but cleaning intestine takes time,This dish is all about how well you clean intestine, one small mistake while cleaning can spoil your entire dish and mood,thats the reason i recommend to have this dish at khan chacha only.










This Is the 1st part  of 2 parts of solapur food journey, in the next part  i'll be covering Unique Biryani joints and unknown "SEEK KABAB" walli gali... 

Do let me know your likes, dislikes about this part by commenting on this post. I would absolutely love to hear from you guys.

Thank You
