    Out of these, I had been to the O’Coqueiro at Porvorim.
    Like you said the Peas Kaju curry is something no one should miss.

  2. That thali just looks so delicious and beautiful! Never heard of these restaurants! So the next time anyone visits Goa I’ll share this list with them! 🙂

    Whoa! I loved this post and want to pack my bags immediately. I love the look of all of this food and it is so affordable.

    Unfortunately, I have not tried Goan food yet. Most Indian restaurants in Los Angeles serve Northern Indian dishes. I have to check restaurants in Little India to see if they have a restaurant serving food from the state. Of course, it will not be as good as the source but it will suffice for the time being.

  17. This one is a ready reckoner for anyone heading Goa. The places seem to be serving awesome food.

  18. blair villanueva says:

    Foods looks delicious and healthy, especially the foods your shared from Earthen Pots 🙂 Are they into spices and also serve Halal foods (for our halal conservative friends).

    This is highly required. I already bookmarked this post of yours, for our referral; whenever me n my husband will visit Goa… It’s gonna happen soon 🙂 Thank you Indrani.

  22. Ami says:

    Loved all the places, especially the Porvorim one. Lovely pictures and beautifully detailed.

  23. Out of all these places I have just not been to Spice Plantations and didnt really like Earthen pot much due to the lack of variety. Rest totally agree with you 😀

  24. Alberto C. says:

    I LOVE Indian food, I can’t wait to visit India so I can give it a try in there. I’m sure it’s a lot better than abroad. Thanks for all those tips with the restaurants!

  25. Christina says:

    I have heard so much about the wonderful beaches of Goa that I have added it to our dream trip to India. It is great to know we will be enjoying some fantastic food while there as well. I will definitely keep these restaurants in mind when we visit.

  26. Paola says:

    Those are very good suggestions! And when we talk about food I am always interested!! 😉

  27. Carmy says:

    Love all these food options! I would love to hit up some of these places one day!

  28. Gabi says:

    Earthen Pots Garden… that place looks inspiring and the picture with the food delicious. I was right this morning telling my husband our next “big trip” (“trippone” as we call it at home in Italy) needs to be India, I was shortlisted to see Kerala last year but then things got intense here with work and I had to sadly decline, and I am still regretting it. Goa looks amazing, at least from the gastronomic point of view. And from the pictures I’ve already seen, the place is amazing for a long Summer holiday too. Very nice post!

  29. This food all looks delicious! I love Indian food but I’ve never actually tried Indian seafood. I would especially like to try the stir fried prawns.

  30. i like the list a lot. Have never been to Goa but would go to at least one of them when I visit.

  31. Love this! I went to India three years ago and regretted not heading south. I now have more inspiration to get to Goa. Thanks for sharing!

  32. Joanna says:

    I love Indian food but I have never tried the Goan specialties, as I have only traveled in the North of the country. The food looks delicious and it seems so cheap! In the North I would always spend at least 1000 rupees for a meal.

  33. I’ve never had Goan food, but it all looks so tasty! The Spice Plantation seemed particularly appealing to me, but I’d like to try all of these.

  34. I visited India for 6 months and actively avoided Goa because it is so famous as just being a beach town. As a ginger kid, I don’t do too well at the beach, so the idea was not an attractive one at the time. After reading this, though, I feel like I misjudged and will for sure have to add Goa to my next Indian adventure!

  35. Samantha says:

    It was your 6th visit to Goa, wow! You must really enjoy visiting there. I would like to try cuisine from Goa.

  36. Lala says:

    Some interesting looking dining options here. Great recommendations for visiting Goa. Not sure about the smoothie/coconut drink.

  37. Inka says:

    Oh this is making me Hungry! India is on my list and especially Goa just because it seams so different. Do you have any recommendations for any Vegetarian options?

  38. Will pocket this for when I finally get to India! I will defs be using your posts- so informative!
