This local eatery is known for serving the area’s best snails and shrimp pakoras, locally known as ‘Bora.’ It is definitely becoming one of the best hangouts in Manipur. And especially after staying indoors for several months, visiting Nambol Bora was literally a breath of fresh air! We ate Khajing bora (Shrimp fritters), Yeroom bora (egg fritters), Lemon Tea, Chicken momos, Potato & Spring Onion bora.

If you want to know more about Kekhrie Ringa – the person, and her beginnings, check out her interview with R&L – way back in 2017. <HERE> “I want to be 100 % honest and authentic especially when I put my music out. Every single song is a reflection of the person that I am. I don’t want to simply look like the idea of what people have about me nor the idea of the overrated perfection. As the songs and videos come in one by one, you’ll get to know me better…You may choose to embrace it or walk away …and that’s ok. And even if you, someday, end up hating me…Be kind, for Art cannot please …
