Winning For

The rustic touch that shines through in their decor and in their food. Their wine selection and impeccable service.

Lowdown On The Ambience

While on a busy arterial road in Panjim, Mum’s Kitchen comes enclosed in a verdant setting that includes a fish pond. Inside, amidst all the modern lights and seating you’ll spot earthen walls stacked with pots, age-old stone grinders, and copper utensils.

From Mommy, With Love

Mum’s Kitchen is an initiative to preserve traditional Goan cuisine. So, the menu is actually a collection of recipes from households from all around the State and have been contributed by the best chefs in the world – mums of course!

Start off your meal here with a plate of their poi {Goan bread}. They are made right here in the restaurant’s busy kitchens. And they are pillowy and simply melt in your mouth, especially, if you slather on the butter. While these can be eaten plain, you can lap these up with servings of their fiery Pork Vindaloo {they have an equally delicious chicken version as well}.

Spice Quotient

Since they are striving for authenticity here, the food is pretty spicy. So, if you’d like them to dial down the heat, just ask them and they’ll customise it according to your tastes. While the vegetarians aren’t spoilt for choice here, the Almeachim {Mushroom} Xacuti is worth digging into. The slices of tender mushroom stand enriched thanks to the coconut and spice gravy it comes in.

You can’t go wrong with the Prawn Curry either. Choose the King Prawns in Curry with bimblis {a sour fruit that’s commonly used in this cuisine}. The bimblis give the curry a tanginess that will have your tongue tingling in no time. The underlying freshness of the prawns cut through the spiciness of the curry as well. This comes with a generous serving of rice. But if you’d like to build on this dish, the, Chorizo Chilly won’t disappoint. Tangy sausages come tossed in bell peppers that add crunch to the dish. You can finish up with plates of their luscious caramel custard or the traditional Bebinca. Both excellent choices!

So, We’re Thinking…

Since this is one of the best-known places to eat in Central Goa, a reservation is well-warranted during peak season. Also, this is a fine-dine restaurant the prices match the poshness.
