I first heard of Bomra’s through Restaurateur and celebrity Chef Ritu Dalmia way back in 2009-10. The restaurant was new on the Goan scene then and yet everyone who ate at this small, stylish restaurant was raving about it already. In fact, at our very first Food Awards in 2011, Bomra’s won the title of the Best Asian Restaurant by a jury that consisted of the likes of Ritu Dalmia, Marut Sikka and Vir Sanghvi. The restaurant owned by Burmese Chef Jawmra Jap is located on the Candolim-Ford Aguada road and has been belting out delicious food ever since.Must try dishes here - The rice vermicelli with prawns and the pork tamarind curry.

A holiday in Goa is always special. Not only do you get to soak in the relaxed atmospherics of the beaches, you are also assured of a fulfilling gastronomic expedition. Making beautiful food memories in Goa is easy; the options are many and cater to all pocket-sizes, just make sure you choose wisely. Also, when you find a good place, make sure you share the recommendations ahead! Fisherman’s Cove

Fisherman’s Cove has been serving yummy Goan food for decades. Located in the busy Candolim market area, this is a favourite hangout for many. Goan favourites like pork vindaloo, pork sorpotel
, chicken caffereal and prawn curry are best sellers. The taste is always consistent and service always quick. Go for a meal or a quick snack enroute to the beach. Fisherman’s Cove is your typical Goan food joint, complete with red and white tablecloth, that never disappoints.

The newest kind on the block, or on this list at least, The Lazy Goose is a delightful little joint, tucked away under the Nerul bridge. Just a short drive from the Candolim area, The Lazy Goose serves Goan and continental dishes with an interesting menu that features fancy dishes like grilled Vietnamese prawn cakes, spinach & sundried tomato risotto balls, chicken & mushroom bites along with local favourites like fish in rachedo masala, pork sorpotel and chicken cafreal. They also organise crab-fishing expeditions on prior request. The food is great, but the setting is what truly adds a cherry on top.
