You Must Hit Up These Restaurants On Your Maiden Trip To Goa
While Goa might be known among the wanderers for its spectacular beaches, and riveting nightlife, anyone who has been here long enough will also tell you that it’s a food lover’s paradise! So once you’ve had your fill of of beer on the beach, head to these restaurants which offer a wide platter of choices for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.
A fusion cuisine that combines local ingredients with South Indian flavours, eclectic cocktails and a soothing ambience where you’re seated in the garden of an old Portuguese house, Gunpowder is pretty much the cornerstone of art and culture in North Goa. You’ll often find many local artists there, gorging on delicious appams, pandhi curry, Kerela beef fry. Their panna cotta is also a must-have in the dessert menu.
A local’s recommendation for a thali joint in North Goa, Vinayak is a home-style restaurant run by a Goan family. The fish thali is an absolute delight and will mostly feature the fresh catch of the day, along with portions of local veggies and clams. You can also check with them for the daily specials — all of which will be one or the other delicious local goan curry. Their fish xacuti, prawn rawa fry and prawn sorpotel are among our favourites.
Located on the quieter and lesser frequented beach strip between Calangute and Baga, this is a serene and peaceful place to sit and enjoy personalised service, impressive food and refreshing drinks. While the place has a simplistic vibe to it, their day-time menu is bona fide fine-dining. Their prawn cocktail is among the best you’ll taste in Goa, and we also recommend their grilled fish and tangy vindaloo.
