Bhagyachandra Open Air Theatre, also known as BOAT is a vast open-air theatre where performances were taking place.
Visit food stall and serving people recommended ‘Singju Bora’ written in the menu card, which he pronounced as ‘Sing-zoo bora,’ the vegetable salad from Meitei cuisine, which is normally taken as side-dish or mid-day snack. Based on the seasonal vegetables, many variants were available. My plate had vegetables, green leaves, along with Thoiding (perilla seeds), Channa Powder and Chilies; the quantity was huge and two people could eat the dish comfortably. I felt energized after the salad, which cost me INR 50. I went inside the small kitchen and also took a look at the non-veg menu consist of Tharoi (freshwater snail curry) and Khajing Bora (Prawn).
I couldn’t stop myself and entered inside the kitchen, I learned a recipe of Sungju Bora and had a chit chat with Chef.
Sharing table with the locals, who also helped me to choose a veg dish me being a vegetarian.
