this is a particularly complicated time to be in india, and especially in delhi. but here we've been for almost two weeks. despite everything going on, we've been eating out with friends (and mostly talking about all the shit going on). some of that stuff is addressed in this first meal review, of dinner at eat pham, a manipuri restaurant. manipur is one of the north eastern states, whose cuisines and cultures--by and large--have far more in common with the countries east of india than with the dishes and flavours associated with indian food abroad (or for that matter in much of india). this meal included smoked pork, river snails, fermented fish etc. take a look.
