Walk in anytime between 11 am to 11 pm for a feast in this up market restaurant. Rony and Susie Martins bring to the fore mother's recipes from yesteryears past. A research over other mother’s forgotten recipes from different parts of Goa dons the menu. One could tend to drive past it on the bustling streets of Miramar. Set in a small bungalow with an enclosed garden, one enters an air conditioned room with local artifacts reflecting a nostalgic era. The must-tries – the crab xec-xec masala and the sungtachi kodi. The service is casual, perhaps in keeping with the Goan culture, but timely and competent.
The restaurant was highly recommended for Goan cuisine by some friends, so we decided to check it out for ourselves. The ambience and interiors of this restaurant are so good. Makes for a peaceful dining experience. Arup, the F&B attendant, was very polite and patient as to our enquiries about various dishes on the menu. He goes out of his way to ensure you have a good meal. The menu itself is a visual treat and does take a while to get through. I would highly recommend Pork Solantulem (dry shallow fried boneless pork served with peppers) and Kombdechem Sukhem (boneless chicken marinated with ginger, garlic, coriander, tamarind and pan fried). Both dishes were absolutely delicious. Nothing's perfect, and so is the case here. The only let down was the pricing. It's quite an expensive restaurant. The prices being at par with 5 star hotel menus. Just so you know and make an informed decision. Great food, but it will put a hole in your pocket.
I spent a few days relaxing in Goa this past December. A friend of mine told me that Mums Kitchen was a place not to miss. Boy were they right. The traditional food of Goa is a bit different from the food I have had in the rest of India. I guess it is a little influenced by the Portuguese. I had a delicious traditional dish with large shrimp in a yummy sauce. It was great. Mix that with a small bottle of wine and it was just perfect. I returned for a second meal at Mums and was just as happy. I had some clams with a curry sauce and it was also great. They have a nice selection of desserts. A custard dessert was really good. This restaurant was just a few blocks from the Marriot I was staying and it was really a nice place to have a relaxing dinner.
The ambience is great. Soft background music. A nice entrace that houses a water fountain. The issue is the pricing of the items in the menu. The pork sorpotel was about 600+ rupees and wasn't that great. I have tasted equal or better at home. I can't remember the price of the roti but even that was exorbitant. The fish cutlets we had didn't taste very good. It was made of king fish. I'm not fully sure if its me and my wife not liking the taste of a king fish or if the cutlet itself being a little fishy smell like. The cutlets were quite small and we paid around 300+ for 5-6 cutlets. We wanted to have some rice so we ordered the prawns pulav. While the prawns were really juicy, it felt like they had just tossed in some prawns into rice and was very dry. Even something as basic as that was around 300+. I had heard a lot about the clams (tisrious) but just did not feel like trying because of the high prices.
We dropped in for desserts and wondered what the hype was all about. Desserts were decent. But they charged us 125 for a bottle of water.
Good food. Sannas are tasty. The banana desert is good Service is slow. There is no private parking. You need to park on the streets. Do the reservation in advance.
It a motto of ours while travelling, ‘live like the locals do’ and when in Goa the best way to see the city is through its vibrant food. Goan food has its rich history and is greatly influenced by Portuguese culture. When in Goa make it a point to find some small eatery well-known to the locals to truly experience what this charming seaside town is all about. Ask your cabbie or a vendor for recommendations on where to eat and we bet most of them whispering ‘Mum’s Kitchen’ into your ears. This lovely popular eatery is ensconced in the lanes of cultural Panaji. Look out for it in Martins Building on Dayanand Bandodkar Street. The restaurant is open between 11 am to 11 pm. Take along a foodie friend or go for a casual date, the ambience is perfect.
The idea behind Mum’s Kitchen is to give the diners a homely culinary experience. The owner duo, Rony and Susie Martins, brings forth mother’s old recipes lost in time. These recipes are handpicked from different parts of Goa and finds one platform at Mum’s Kitchen. You are in for a gastronomic treat. Enjoy the food with a drink of your choice from their impressive bar menu. For a genuine Goan touch, ask your server for a glass of Feni, Goan’s regional drink. Wade into the menu with, Sopa de camarao, tamoso, beef pepper garlic, batat kalimiri, foddi, bharleli kelli and tisryo dangar. Dig in deeper with an assortment of Goan mains such as, pork vindalho, chicken cafreal, pedrinhache balchao, mankyo amot tik, lepo hooman, moonganchi ghanti, shivodache kodi and Mother’s curry.
Mop up these exceptional Goan curries with a serving of pulao or sannas, which is a steam Goan bread made from toddy & boiled rice. Accentuate your meal with the restaurant’s homemade pickles. The chef makes deliciously tangy pickles of prawn, gherkin, cauliflower and even mackeral. Kids get their own special menu brimming with yummy seafood. Sip on a refreshing English tea with your final sweet course. Crepe Mum, bebinca, sakharbhat, alle belle are some desserts worth trying. Mum’s Kitchen is set in a charming villa enveloped by a dense green foliage. Inside, the room is traditionally designed to infuse the feel of Goa through pictures, basket of coconuts and utensils. Low hung beams in wood offsets pale walls beautifully. For a tad expensive prices, enjoy a classy casual dining in Goa.
