Coming from the stable of The Bombay Canteen team, naturally, the expectations are high and O Pedro lives up to these effortlessly. The cheerful décor comprising indoor plants, muted colours and cane chairs, is exceedingly Portuguese-esque and beckons you instantly. The vibe is invigorating and the staff friendly. The attractive bar spells bonhomie and is apt for relaxing and enjoying a drink. The menu has been inspired by the Catholic, Hindu Saraswat and Portuguese cuisines of Goa. The core remains authentic but it is the inventive twist which makes the food even more endearing to the palate. Raw Papaya Kiss-Mur and Kal-Chi Kodi Devilled Eggs are innovative and delightful. The spices are palpable, the ingredients distinctive and the flavours familiar, yet, with elements of surprise. The Chicken Baffad Curry is strongly reminiscent of home flavours, while the Margao Choriz Pulao will warm the cockles of any meat-eaters heart. The vegetarian Saraswat Tondak curry boasts of heart-warming flavours. Quarter-plates, half-plates and full-plate portions here are apt and allow diners to share. For dessert, try Aunty Li’s Serradura. The service is efficient and the staff is articulate and well-informed.
After the resounding success of The Bombay Canteen, Chef Floyd Cardoz is back with another wonderful eatery called O Pedro. The restaurant serves a combo of Goan, Portuguese and European food. So do the shacks in Goa, you may think but you would be wrong in thinking so. Because this is real good food in a great setting. The entire restaurant has vaulted ceilings, vintage-style furniture, potted plants and summery drapes to block out the afternoon sun. Not to miss, lots of colour. We are here for lunch, and hoping to sample dishes that are more than the Goan staples, and I am not disappointed. Food is by and large delicious. That is not something that I can say for the starters that are too muted to be spunky Goan food. Choriz Tacos (Rs 390) are not piquant enough. House Baked Sourdough Poee with whipped pork rosemary butter and choriz butter (Rs 265) has poees that are fresh and toothsome, though the two butters don’t have the hit of pork or the spiciness of choriz. But after that it is all yumminess. Seabass Ceviche (Rs 495) is lovely. Though I do not care much for the crunchies on top, the ceviche itself is fresh and perfectly cured. Pork Ribs (Rs 525) are literally falling off the bone and are an indulgent treat. It is one dish I will be back again and again in this restaurant for. With all that juicy and yielding pork fat, this is the stuff dreams are made of. Coconut Cream Ale (Rs 395) is a homemade brew and is refreshing. Vanilla Bean Ice cream (Rs 100) has that much forgotten vanilla flavour and beans and is the perfect way to end the meal. All in all great food. Much recommended.
We had been there to celebrate my birthday. We ordered prawns and house baked sourdough Goan Poee, which is served with flavoured butters. The Goan Poee was so aromatic and got finished within no time. We have to repeat the order. Prawns preparation was also succulent. Then we ordered Panji Green Watana Rassa with bhatura and that too we enjoyed. Then we summed up our lunch with House made dessert.
Being a vegetarian this place is a delight and I have visited it multiple times. Their twist on goan food and the vibe is great. The place is crowded over the weekend and booking is recommended. Their concept of half plates and quarter places helps me explore variety as my husband is non-vegetarian. The cocktails are also recommended and must try.
the best Goan food experiment outside of the sunshine state. Albeit experimental and not overtly authentic, this place did score brownie points on the overall food preparation and the ability to amaze with their fusion tastes. We had a barrage of food between 2 of us and were really cursing our always "ill timed" and "unnecessary" greed. But the overall experience was amazing; the pricing not...Too steep with its pricing, that is the only reason why I have rated it a 4, when it could have easily scored a 5. we had the Chorizo Pork Tacos - SIMPLY AMAZING; right mix of spicy and crispy The Cadoz's Chicken Chilly Fry - NOTHING GREAT; a standard taste, wasn't too happy with this one For DRINKS; we ordered the - PINA BAGA LADA - GREAT CONCOCTION; different take on all the party alcohol The MR FERNANDES FANCY DRINK - SUPERB; being a big fan of Paul John, this one killed it for me FOR MAINS: 1) The Prawns Shak Shak Curry with Brown Rice 2) The Beryl's Fish curry with pao Have them both, they taste divine and are so different from each other... Simply Great
O Pedro in BKC serve Goan food with lots of smiles. It has a bit of a party vibe, and it is always crowded on weekends. We enjoyed the food, the drinks and the fast and friendly service. Make reservations, otherwise it can be a long wait at the bar.
