I have not had one bad meal here, and that is probably the story for most Sana-di-ge fans. Focusing on dishes from Karnataka (Mangalore especially), Maharashtra, Kerala, and some from even Goa, this restaurant is seafood haven. Check out the anjal tava fry, the crab soup, Yetti/Marvai sukka (prawns/clams fried in a dried coconut spice mix), fried lady fish, or even the Malvani mutton masala dry from the coast of Maharashtra. They also make sungat dumplings – prawns cooked in onions, tomatoes, a special Goa masala, and then coated with bread crumbs and deep fried. For main course, the Karavalli jenji curry (sea crab cooked in a hot gravy) is a personal favourite. And try the egg appams!
The best way to experience any city is through its regional food, which via its spices and produce conveys the true spirit of the city. Take Bengaluru for instance.
