Aug 09, 2015 12:41

As much as they love their local dishes like iromba and nadi, the people of Imphal, Manipur have an exotic palate and are always welcome to new cuisines. Take the number of cafés and bistro’s that have sprung up over the recent past and are happily catering to every age group with a delectable menu of pizzas, pasta, finger food, granitas and smoothies. So here’s keeping you abreast with some of the pizza joints in Imphal that wow the locals and tourists alike.

The new kid on the block is Laziz Pizza on Sega Road, close to Kwakheithel. Located on the road that leads to the airport, this new dine out has become quite a rage since it opened its doors. Not only is the food extremely tasty here but the USP is that the menu is reasonably priced. This place offers a variety of pizzas, pasta, sandwiches, burgers, salads and coffees. The chicken keema pizza is mouthwatering and so is the Mexican chicken variety. For those who love their veggies, try the Veg Supreme pizza as well as their Mushroom and Jalapeno pizza. 

Talking of finger food, try their chicken, either air fired or done in oil. Pizza’s are priced at Rs 80/- for regular sized (four pieces) vegetable pizzas while the non-veg varieties start at Rs 100/-. Prices for medium sized (8 pieces) stand around Rs 150/- to 200/- and the larger it gets, the prices go up. Burgers, fries and sandwiches all come between the price range of Rs 60/- to Rs 100/-. The place is done up in bright red and white and is modern in its décor. The service is excellent and thus has managed 

Johnny’s Pizza on RIMS road is another such pizzeria that dishes out yummy thin crust and stuffed pizzas. This place offers the quintessential British favourite – fish and chips. Alongside pizzas, pasta in red and white sauce, you can dig into fried chicken in Cajun spices. The Hawaiians pizza is the favourite here and is loaded with juicy bits of pineapple, succulent chicken, and a range of toppings from cheddar cheese to bell peppers and mushrooms. The pepperoni and pork pizza is best described as ‘out of the world’ with heaps of bacon and pepperoni flavour. 

For those who wish to end on a sweet note, the pastry section is your personal heaven. From Black forest to pineapple and strawberry to exotic flavours like kiwi and blueberry, one is spoilt for choice. Once again, what keeps people thronging back to this café is the pricing of the menu. Reasonable prices and awesome combo offers that range between Rs 50/- to Rs 500/- are what you get at this eatery. Bright light and attractive décor cause this café to stand out among other eateries on this road. 

If you want to go Italian all the way, then Flavours, a multi-cuisine restaurant on Mantripukhri is the place to be at. Think beyond the usual pizza and pasta, this place offers lasagna, meat platters, penne, spaghetti, ravioli and much more. A little deviation from the menu towards onion rings, the salad bar offering Greek and Hawaiian varieties, freshly baked bagels and French loaves make one's trip to this place, worthwhile. Though a little expensive, the quality and portions of food served here takes it to the next level. Sophisticated ambience with an outdoor balcony facility adds to the credibility of this place.

Don’t get this wrong, the Manipuri people love their local food and are proud of their cuisine but are open to such developments and new tastes. Be sure to visit these places and sample the food served to your heart’s content. These cafés have seen success within a short span and continue to serve a gastronomical feast to the locals.
