Goa, a word that conjures up images of fun and fantastic food! Yes, as beautiful as the land is so is the cuisine. As with any coastal place, the seafood is plentiful and cooked in a million ways! So are the pork and other meats. The Hindu cuisine influence comes from the traditional Saraswat food, an integral part of Goan cuisine. Kokum, a natural souring agent, is put to good use here and features in curries, vegetarian and non vegetarian. Traditionally vinegar or toddy is also used in the cuisine. Garlic is also a favourite ingredient. The best part about Goan cuisine is that they believe in eating fresh. Originally a Portugese colony, the cuisine has strong and distinct traces of Portugal influence too. The fish curries, the vindaloos, the roasts and the desserts all are unique and give your stay in Goa that memorable touch. The Lobster Peri Peri is a dish that is a ‘Must-Try’ when you holiday in Goa. Portuguese influence is evident in the Goan culture and also in the style of cooking.

Tuna tastes especially good in Goan Fish Curry but you can also use any fish with firm white flesh. Usually held in April, the Lairai Zatra is a popular festival which resembles more of a fair.
