Food from Goa

With the intent of keeping track of some of our favorites during our holiday, I've listed out the sea-food main courses that we tasted ...
  1. Prawn Curry at Colva beach
    • Delicious and consistent curry.
    • Soft and tender small prawns.
  2. Shark fish Curry at Palolem beach (seen in the pic above)
    • Tiny fish pieces, had to ask for more.
    • Tangy & Spicy. 
  3. Kalamari (Squid) Curry at Agonda beach
    • Didn't realize Kalamari was a squid until a few bites.
    • It tasted more like Macroni without the gravy.
    • Lovely curry with rice.
  4. Fried Fish & Fish Curry at Dona Paula
    • Serving the dish with both dry gravy and fried fish.
    • Light and refreshing.
  5. Red Snapper Fry & Curry at Martins, Margoa
    • The best sea-food tasted at Goa.
    • Typical Goan preparation in a Green paste (can't say more).
All the above dishes were tasted with white boiled rice & yogurt (for Joe).

We wanted to order food from Baan Thai and forgot to get their new menu with revised rates.
Unfortunately we had given the last menu card to one of our friends the last time we feasted on the thai delicacies.

So that brought me to zomato to get Baan Thai's phone & menu details.
To add to the exercise, I decided to add my reviews for a meal earlier at Shiv Sagar Baner.

Turns out zomato is being used for resturant reviews in many cities now.
Not sure how many of the inputs on the food quality, service, ambiance & cost is genuine.

Something to digest with a pinch of salt !
