‘Earthern Oven’ is a popular brand when it comes to North-Indian cuisine and is just perfect to kick-start this list. It is nestled in a green pocket of Candolim, decorated in a casual yet cheerful manner by giving the desi touch of ‘charpis’ out on the patio. ‘Chulha’ of Grand Hyatt take its location seriously by being placed in middle of a palm grove invitingly. While outside the trees swish with sea breeze, inside you can enjoy a very elegant and tasteful setting trapped with lovely wooden screens.Tucked into the beautiful Portuguese Baroque style streets of Panaji, is a humble little eatery called ‘Copper’, which deals mainly into delicious North-Indian cuisine. The place is totally affordable and is set outdoors so one can admire the beauty all around freely.
Another budget-friendly place to register on your food radar is ‘Satvik’, which is again located in the panoramic lanes of Panaji. This place has a small yet likable menu to be enjoyed on a shoe-string budget.Settled into the nook of Bardez is a small humble food joint ‘Indiana Family Restaurant’. The place is stretched out in an open setting starting its day early with a nice North-Indian style meal. For hungry travellers returning back from Calangute Beach, there is a small affordable place just next to Calangute Residency, called ‘Sai Sagar Restaurant’. Their menu is completely vegetarian and filled with classic North-Indian fare. ‘Hotel Annapurna Sneha’ is an unpretencious restaurant falling near to the old Goa police station. The menu encompasses a mix of Chinese and North-Indian dishes for a very nominal price.‘Hare Rama’ is nothing more than a glorified beach shack but its stunning natural location makes it a charming getaway of curry and sand. Sit outside under the umbrella with a plateful of curry while admiring the swelling waves of Patnem Beach.
