Goan food


There are few things in life that a holiday in Goa can’t fix. The serene bliss of beaches and sumptuous Goan food can surely banish your blues. Luckily,

Pune is no stranger to Goan fare. When your palate craves crab, chorizo pao or rich coconut, jaggery flavours, simply head over to any of these city restos that do Goa proud.

Cafe Goa

The ultimate destination for the quintessential Prawn Curry at Café Goa that gives it a Coconut twist with a hint of spice. Plated with steamed rice, this makes a satisfying mouthful. Also a must try are their surmai or even the pomfret curry. Richly flavoured, these come laced coconut milk. The best part is that you can tune in to some Goan melodies as you chow down.
