I’m not a complete foodie but whenever some tasty, irresistably good dishes pass by me, I just can’t help tucking in. I love to eat bite by bite….slowly relishing in…. and food has also given me some memories that I’ll always treasure… 🙂
Here’s listing down some of the best delicacies that I have sampled and in no particular order bcoz I love them all 🙂
1) Chicken & Mushroom Pasta at Giovanni’s Da Tita Pizzas n Pasta, Majorda
Creamy mushroom sauce, delicious Penne pasta, creamy chicken…..
I was licking the bowl till they cleared it from the table and every time we went to Da Tita’s for a pizza and pasta treat, we just had to have this dish on our menu.
2) Hot n Sour Chicken Soup at Delhi Darbar, Panjim
Simply delicious….simmering hot soup with very finely chopped garlic & onions…so hot & warm & so much chicken in every sip of it.
And since it was rainy days, the soup felt nice & warm in the tummy. If and when I come back here, I want to order this soup only.
3) Rabdi with Jalebi at Kashi Diary Sweets, Margao
We had heard so much about this sweet shop from our friend that we HAD TO visit it, by far the most authentic North Indian sweets that I have tasted & it had to be so bcoz our friend is a North Indian & she takes us to the best places(Infact, most of the places on this list were recommended by her 🙂 ).
Sweet condensed malai mixed with sugar, served chilled with the syrupy sweet jalebi…. Woww….can’t believe to imagine the flavor if kesar was added to it too.
4) Fishka Special Fruit Salad at Fishka Restaurant, Betalbatim
This extremely yum dessert was served in a pineapple…we ate dipping our spoons right into it, didn’t even bother with the bowls.
Vanilla ice cream mixed with a generous amount of fruits and nuts and my favourite…Chickoo.
5) Fishka Special Chicken Hot Wings at Fishka Restaurant, Betalbatim
Hot Deep Fried, completely coated in “finger-licking-good” sauce….
Another dish which left me licking my fingers long after I had finished savouring it.
6) Tiramisu at Fisherman’s Wharf, Cavelossim
This was on an excursion to cheer me up & this dessert successfully did it!!!! 🙂
Served in a cocktail glass, it had layers of cake, biscuits dipped in coffee & spongy mixture of whipped eggs and cocoa…topped with white chocolate.
7) Chicken Cafereal at Viva Panjim, Panjim
Another delicacy which we devoured directly from the plate…with warm garlic bread.
The ginger-garlic masala gives it it’s unique green color & while u puncture the chicken by just the right amount, the masala flows in flavouring the chicken with spices & herbs.
8) Sizzling Walnut Brownie at Kudos Sizzler Grill & Pizzeria, Porvorim
This was another surprise treat for me – a pure treat to the eyes the way the rum was poured into the brownie to set it ablaze and the ice cream & chocolate sauce melting & sizzling on the sizzler plate.
Chocolaty walnut brownie & the hot smoky chocolate sauce & the cool vanilla ice cream & the rum….yumm.
9) Ravioli at Kudos Sizzler Grill & Pizzeria, Porvorim
Delicious stuffing of vegetables & chicken sealed between square pasta layers & served with cheesy sauce.
Another reason to fall in love with pasta again.
10) Barbecue Chicken at Kudos Sizzler Grill & Pizzeria, Porvorim
I had seen(in movies) & heard & read a lot about barbecue parties but had never really had a taste of one. I used to think its spicy but when I tasted it I was pleasantly surprised to feel the sweet taste.
Seasoned in barbecue sauce, the chicken was perfectly crisp on the outside & cooked on the inside. My fingers were a saucy mess & the table a mess of wet tissues after eating it but worth it!!!
Soo many more places to go and soo many dishes yet to taste.
Till then people, keep clinking the glasses and tapping the plates. Happy eating. 🙂
