It is said that Goa has something for everyone. Enough has been said about the magic of Goa, from its laid-back cafes to seaside shacks and cosy restaurants, Goa sports a seriously delectable dining scene. The food here is a mix of Portuguese flavours and Indian spices with coconut milk and vinegar as traditional ingredients and a glass of port wine to wash it down.

Amok Tik is a humble fish curry which is known for its zingy tart flavours. A pleasurable mix of spices, coconut milk, tamarind juice, fishes and the petals of kokum solam together brings about this spiced up local favourite. Take a ride to Ritz Classic at Wagle Vision Building, 18th June Road, Ozari, Panjim.

Almost every dish in Mum's Kitchen is worth their while. Try their Chouricos are spicy pork sausages which owe their origins to the Portuguese culture once thriving in the region. Savio tells HolidayIQ, “ I love Goan food!
