So you all seen what we got up to whilst in Goa- and now for the wining and dining part.
When it comes to food, Goa did not disappoint.
On our first day we are at this place. It’s just outside Candolim Beach, which is also a walk away from our hotel, ( we only realised it’s a walk away on our last day! We were using taxis before this point) and it’s always kicking!
It’s so warm, vibrant and hip inside, I was impressed with the layout and the whole look. A combination of warm orange tones against the natural background of greenery, almost like your in forest. Scores a 10/10 with me.
We got complimentary papad and chutney as appetisers, which was tangy on our taste buds.
For starters we went for Chicken Tikkas, and Grilled Chicken and Veg Sticks which was recommended by the chef…. And don’t forget the Chips…. (Never forget the chips!!), and for mains we went for Chicken Biryani and Daar and Naans. Our first meal in Goa, and still memorable to this date.
This place was literally down the street from our hotel. We tried…. seriously we really did try to wake up early, but our bodies just wouldn’t allow it, and we kept missing breakfast at the hotel, so this was out daily breakfast spot… in the Afternoon.
It was just a really large gazebo set up with table and chairs inside,
Daily we ordered Two Thalis (Indian style meal, made up of a selection of dishes, served on one platter. pic below) In the Thali we got Rice, Daar, two Vegetable curries (differs per day), Nans and Poppodom. You’ll never believe the price… For roughly £6. Yup. For both. And it was divine.
One of the days whilst walking on Titos street we stumbled upon this place, it was very cool and quirky, so in we went.
We decided to satisfy our own cravings here, so I went for the Masala Dosa, the hubby went for Hydrabadi Biryani, and the boys went for Chicken Noodles, with Masala Fried Chips.
Once again we devoured it. Every single little piece. By far the best meal in Goa so far for me. Add this on your to do list. Im adding it on for if I do go back.
The Fishermans Wharf
Okay, so when your in Goa, and you ask anyone where the best place to eat is…. There’s only one answer. This place. Every local, every taxi driver, every tourist will tell you about this place.
And you know what, this place is as close as you can come to the Western World in Goa. From the decor to the food, to the whole vibe once inside and the price. You could say you feel at home (apart from the Indian music)
They have tried to make it so that it looks as if you are on a boat/cruise and its been done really well.
Theres fresh fish and little props set up all around the location, with is cute. Anywhere I can take a photo- I feel right at home.
Evan the cutlery they use feels like being back at home. here we ordered Masala Shrimps, Deep fried Chicken strips, Chicken Tikka, Naans, Sheesh Kebabs and a Chicken Karhai.
And we enjoyed all of this while live music was playing, so it felt preety special.
You guys know I love Tea right? I mean I adore Tea, im obsessed over Tea. So when it comes to India- I just think of all things Tea related- I mean there should be a ‘Chaiiwala’ in every corner shouldnt there? Thats where Chaiiwala back at home has come from.
But my dear folks, not in Goa. Ive never been dissapointed this much in my life. There’s hardly any tea stops anywhere!!!
We eventually managed to find a taxi driver who knew a place- and it was like a 10 minute drive away.
Yes it quenched my thirst, but im not going to come here 6 times a day to get tea!! Dissapointed in Goa, (just in regards to the tea- mind you)
We asked the taxi driver where all the tea places are; he responded by saying, “Goans dont drink tea, they drink Alcohol…..” We got our answer.
What is India All about? Street Food. To my delight. This part was not a dissapointment. We went to loads, like loads of places for street food, and not one dissapointed. (More street food on previous India blogs) Just keep on top of the charcoal tablets daily, and pray that the stomach bugs stay away. They did for us!
And that’s a wrap from Goa.
Moving on next to beautiful Mumbai.
Stay tuned for more
Love and regards
