While Goa is popularly known for its stellar beaches, one cannot discount its bustling culinary scenes! And while we are always on the lookout for incredible places to eat, we recently discovered Spice Mantraa, and it is safe to say that we’ve found a gold mine!
Spice Mantraa is an Inspirational Indian restaurant, (at the YU Hotel, Candolim) serving an eclectic culinaire with inspirations from across Indian States and of course they nail it with the Goan fare too. How? They have created classic dishes by giving them a modern twist which will not only intrigue your taste buds but bewitch them too. Magic happens when a team of six ambitious & ingenious chefs from different parts of India come together, so get get for what's in store.
Picture devouring a Bhuna Chicken which evokes a sense of pulled chicken with home pounded spices or their signature Prawn Chili Fry (Sungta Chili Fry as they term it) which is subtly pan tossed with seasonal veges and Chef’s secret spices and sauces, discover a variety of choices with a pre-plated meal or satiate your hunger with contemporary smoked butter chicken made with smoked infused butter (yumm!). These are just a select few that have been mentioned from their authentic Indian cuisine menu offerings! And that’s not it, you can also indulge in a variety of cocktail concoctions & refreshing beverages, not to forget their Happy Hours from 1800-2000hrs every day..
The cuisine in totality is presented as a series of invocations, mantras that, coupled with the playfulness of inherent gastronomic twists and avant-garde cuisine, creating dishes that will delight the diner with their complexity and wittiness. By the end of it all, you would just need another visit to cover up for the missed culinary delights.!
