More than just a party island, Boracay is also a foodies’ paradise dotted with international eateries, bars and restaurants catering to its diverse tourist population. One of the culinary gems that’s gaining attraction right now in Boracay is Little Taj Indian Street Kitchen. Bold and flavorful yet refined and undeniably modern, Little Taj boasts of Indian fare you’d enjoy if you’re in swanky Mumbai or bustling Dilli Haat in Delhi. It’s the latest offering by Boracay-based couple Patrick and Shria Florencio, the duo behind the Nonie’s Group. Proud of her Indian heritage, Shria wants the guests of Little Taj to experience the vibrant culture and flavors she got to enjoy growing up in India.

Little Taj’s energetic yet carefree atmosphere

At first, Little Taj shared spaces with its sister restaurant, Nonie’s. But due to public clamor and the boost of the island’s post-lockdown re-opening, the owners decided it was the right time to launch its own location. Today, Little Taj’s standalone restaurant is situated in an alleyway between Aria and Epic. It’s the perfect food spot if you’re craving for fiery flavors right after an activity-filled morning by the beach or a filling meal before bar hopping along the stretch of Boracay’s White Beach.

Don’t expect the typical Indian resto atmosphere though when entering Little Taj. Hip, care-free, and cool, the restaurant exudes urban Indian flair from the interiors down to the food. Guests can enjoy dishes inspired by the different regional cuisines of India. From the Papdi Chaat from Northern India, Southern India’s dosas, and assorted biryanis in-between, you’ll find yourself thrilled and reeling from their wide selection of Indian specialties. Of course, some classic Indian dishes like Butter Chicken, Pani Puri, Rogan Josh, Beef Keema Curry, Fish Tandoori, and Palak Paneer are available but you get to enjoy them while wearing comfy beach wear and flip flops plus the pleasure of Boracay’s soft white sand a few meters away. On weekends, the restaurant’s guest DJ would play island beats to get you into the groove as you down a few glasses of their signature cocktails.
