Bomras In Calangute For Its Signature Cured Tea Leaf Salad And Squid Ink Pad Thai

Amrita posted on 10th January

Ten-Second Takeaway

You know right, that the best food in the country can't be had at Mumbai, Delhi or Bangalore? It is good old Goa that comes on tops almost always for experimental food and nouvelle cuisine. Bomras in Calangute leads the pack with its Burmese-meets-South East Asian and Indian flavours.

Chow Down

Pickled Tea Leaf Salad, Lime And Chilli Cured Sardines With Kafir Lime And Mango Ginger, Squid Ink Pad Thai with Cuttle Fish.

Sip On

Fresh fruit cocktails

Winning For

Fresh, spicy, tangy Asian flavours, fresh seafood and really innovative cuisine.

Lowdown On The Ambience

Leave behind all the frenetic, touristy chaos of Calangute and enter Bomras, a little oasis that let's you watch the crowd, but from your own little hidden garden. Twinkling fairy lights and dim lighting, an open air setting, and the comfortable cane furniture completes the laid back atmosphere.Owned by Burmese Chef Bawmra Jap, the restaurant is considered to be one of the best in the world, for serving South East Asian-meets-modern cuisine. Right here in Goa too!

What's On The Menu?


The menu is small but covers a lot of ground between meats, seafood and veggies along with fresh flavours and textures. We'd say start your meal here with Bomras' pickled tea leaf salad {Lah Pet Tok} which is tossed up with lots of dried shrimp and generous drizzle of fish sauce {a vegetarian option is available too}. Then, move onto their lime and chilli cured, juicy sardines rolled with kafir lime and mango ginger.

For mains, their mussels curry with coconut milk. duck curry sweetened with tamarind and slow-cooked pork belly with a cashew nut crust are all favourites. But the star of the mains are the flat noodles or pad Thai with cuttle fish, cooked in squid ink and topped with roasted cashews and green onion. Don't forget to finish your meal with their rich, decadent chocolate and fig mousse.


If dessert is not your jam, then sip on their fresh fruit cocktails that range from pomegranate martinis to lychee margaritas.

So, We're Thinking…

We've had one of our best meals in Goa at Bomras. The friendly staff and the nouvelle cuisine make this Calangute restaurant such a winner.


We recommend making a reservation and going for dinner to enjoy Bomras' pretty ambience even more.

When: Open till April 1, 2017
