Sesame pork from Meghalaya and duck curry from Kerala, will be among the many indigenous cuisines served with a different touch at a new restaurant in Texas soon.

Two chefs: Mayank Istwal, alumni of Institute of Hotel Management, Guwahati, and Shivek Suri of the institute’s Aurangabad branch, have decided to open an eatery at Houston in Texas, where Indian food is largely unexplored.

‘The restaurants in the US mostly dish up kebabs and butter chicken as Indian food. The traditional items from the Northeast or the western part of the country have barely found its way to menu here. So, we thought it’s time to serve tradition with a twist,’ Istwal said.

The chefs left their high-profile jobs in Bangalore and New Delhi and moved to Houston in Texas in 2016 after a friend gave them references of an NRI couple willing to collaborate with Indian chefs for their new restaurant.

‘We got in touch with Shammi Malik and his wife, who were planning to start a high-end restaurant, The Spice Route Company, later this year. Together, we felt the need to visit the kitchens of India for recipes,’ Istwal said. Soon after, in April last year, Mayank and Shivek embarked on a 100-day journey, covering the length and breadth of the country, to gather tips and secrets from the sculleries and kitchenettes.
