Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Restaurant Review

When we think of a Beach Holiday in India, the only name that comes to our mind is Goa. And Goa means beaches, fun, adventures and of course lip-smacking food.The one thing that attracts tourists the most to Goa is the Goan Food. The food here has four elements sweetness, spiciness, sourness and salty.Goan cuisine is incredibly rich and delicious.So don’t you want to try these mouth-watering dishes? If yes, then don’t plan a trip to Goa but plan for a lunch or dinner at Vivanta by Taj, Guwahati. For the very first time in Guwahati, Taj is hosting a “Goan Food Fest “

Goan Food Fest

It has started from 10th of November and will be till 19th November. Goan Food is difficult to replicate but this food festival is specially curated by Chef Ignatius Peter Mario Fernandes from Taj Fort Aguada Beach Resort, Goa so there is no scope for any doubt in taste. To give the feel of Goa, Vivanta by Taj has also created a Holiday mood with lovely Decors and of course Music.So as soon as you enter the restaurant you almost land up in Goa. The Taj team has created a very lovely ambiance.

Goan Food Fest

The menu has been designed very elaborately with wide and equal options for both veg and non-veg food lovers.Each of the dishes reflect the locally available ingredients which give its unique flavor to the dish to be savored. Rice, coconut, fish are the basic ingredient of Goan Cuisine and widely used ingredients are kokum, tamarind, red Goan chilies, cashew nuts and garam masalas.And you will find all the above flavors in this Goan Food Fest. For your convenience, I have also given the menus to drool over these dishes.The Executive Chef of Taj, Chef Dipankar told that they have prepared 3 menus for the nine-day long food festival and will be shuffling the menus every day.

Some interesting picks from the menu are:
SOL KADHI
This is a welcome drink.The combined flavors of buttermilk, kokum and coriander are just wow.I had 2 small glasses of it as one was not enough for me.This is a must try,don’t miss it.

The menu also has more mouth-watering Veg and Non- Veg dishes.But the vegetarian dishes made me more happier than the non- vegetarian dishes. My recommendations will be higher for veg dishes.The Pilafs were outstanding….full of strong flavors.Totally loved it.It’s a high recommendation from my end.
