Exploring Eateries In Goa
Goa is all about the spirit of the place, otherwise there isn’t any dearth of sea beaches in India. We have been to Goa numerous times and this was our fifth visit. What attracts me each time is the uninhibited air of the place, of course the beautiful beaches catering to the taste of every type of traveller and very importantly, the food. If you are a food enthusiast, Goa will not fail to tickle your taste buds.
Each time we have explored numerous eateries, shacks and believe me there are enough options to keep visiting new places. In our last visit we had toured the restaurants of South Goa and this time we explored some of the famous ones of North Goa. Besides the known names we also explored some, which we did not know about, and those I will be discussing in this post.
St.Anthony’s Shack in Baga Beach
Just outside St Anthony's
This place is just beside the famous Britto’s on Baga Beach. Like all other shacks of Goa, this too has lovely ambience, cheerfully lighted interiors Karaoke and DJ. And as it is located right on the beach, you can have an endearing sea view as a company.
Besides ambience and spirit, this place serves great food too and we were happy with the food quality and taste. If you are in Goa and a sea food lover, never miss ‘Prawn Recheado’. The Goan Recheado masala is hot and spicy and blasts in your mouth. We loved this dish here in St. Anthony. Besides we had chicken masala which was yum and chicken fried rice which tasted great.
I also cherished my St Anthony special mocktail, with coconut cream, khus syrup and vanilla ice-cream.
Overall I recommend St Anthony for its food and ambience; it’s economical compared to the more famous Britto’s by its side, but you won’t miss out on taste.
Fisherman’s Cove is in walking distance from Santana Beach Resort on Candolim Beach, where we stayed this time. We visited this place in the afternoon for lunch, hence am unaware of the evening ambience. But this does not have a sea view and is located in the middle of the market place with numerous other eateries nearby. The interiors are beautifully done, and I especially liked the lights.
Now coming to food, we found Fisherman’s Cove a little more expensive than expected. We ordered golden friend prawns which tasted great, a chicken dish which was good too. But the crab fried rice was a disappointment, we hardly located bits of shredded crab meat and the taste was average. We wanted to order king fish, but the portions were a little weird for a group of four and it was extremely overpriced.
Overall, Fisherman’s Cove was an average experience and I had expected better.
