Goa is not just about the sun, sand and the beaches! Do not miss the exotic cuisine it has to offer

Text and illustration by: Anirban Bora

The Goan cuisine is multi-layered, much like the celebrated bebinca. From sorportel to shark ambot tik, from balchao to feni, it is a heady spread.

The legend behind the creation of the vast coastline of Konkan was depicted by Bishubabu, an ex-schoolteacher with theatrical attributes, who was fascinated by his favourite sandesh’s Portuguese connection* and went to the bottom of it.


The land attracted various rulers who brought with them their customs, religions and, more importantly, new culinary techniques resulting in a rich and diverse cuisine.
