A hit and miss surrounded by foliage as you whizz past the bustling streets of Candolim is the Republic of Noodles at the Lemon Tree Amarante resort. Known for their Pan Asian cuisine, one must start off with the 'Grilled Fish with Lemon Basil sauce' and 'Indonesian Beef Satay with spicy peanut sauce' as you sit back and enjoy a cocktail from their eclectic bar menu. The 'Crispy Fried Lamb with tangy chilly garlic sauce' is filling and portions can be shared. A soup not to be missed - the 'Tom Yum Goong with Lemongrass', 'Kaffir Lime Leaves' and 'Bird Chilly'. Consume with care as one wrong sip can send you coughing away to a cold glass of water for respite.
