Porto and Poie, Juhu

Newly opened place in Juhu, created quite the buzz before being opened. We were invited for a tasting so here’s our say — Goan food should be homely, comforting and frankly speaking a no frills kinda meal.

Palolem and Panjim

Yes, yes this one has come too late, frankly speaking the Chef doesn’t really like Goa or Goan food.

So this time around the Foodie took him to places which we are sure even the biggest “Goa” lover didn’t know of.
