The East Bay is slowly stepping up their game in the restaurant world. Teni East Kitchen, a casual Asian fusion restaurant, just opened their doors and already it’s a hit!
Teni East Kitchen serves delicious dishes with Indian and Thai flavors that will satisfy your cravings for full flavored spiced foods.We started off the roti, an Indian style crepe that was served with an intensely rich spiced dipping sauce with peas. Definitely get this. Next, the spicy catfish was piled high with chilies; this is not a dish for the faint of heart. While the catfish itself was fried perfectly with a crispy exterior and moist fish, the amount of chilies was even a bit too spicy for me. The cumin pork belly was hella tasty especially with the fresh aromatic basil. This was another favorite of mine. The cauliflower and sweet corn was also on point. Super sweet with delicious fried pieces of ginger which added a unique flavor to the dish. The coconut rice was one of my favorite items that we tried. The rice must have been cooked in coconut milk because it had a delicate sweet flavor with almost a creamy texture. Amazing.
Next time I’ll be sure to try one of their curries because those looked great as well! Overall Teni East Kitchen is a solid restaurant for just opening up so my rating is a 7.5-8/10.
