Today’ food tale emphasizes on the longing for a familiar taste. Mohit from Jaunting Journeys shares his experience from the sandy shores of Goa. Over to him…
Location: Molly’s Nest, Mandrem Beach, Goa, India
It was a spontaneous trip and we unknowingly landed in Goa, India. Being free souls, we didn’t have any hotel bookings prior to the morning we were to check-in. Now for a veggie like me who can’t leave the typical North Indian taste behind, I certainly did not expect to find any delectable dishes in the restaurant.
During our trip, we stayed in 3 different properties and believe me that the stay at Molly’s Nest Cottage was the best in terms of the rooms, view, food and service. The restaurant created a lovely authentic low table seating with a beautiful sea view. The menu was abundant with varied cuisine from Chinese to Italian and more. But we found something we were looking for – North Indian food. From the menu, we ordered our all-time favourites: Dal Makhani and Kadhai Paneer, while praying that the evening won’t get ruined.
As we waited for the food, we grabbed some books from their small shelf but found nothing in English. Soon, to our surprise, we were served the best-tasting food we have ever had. The taste stuck to our buds and mind for long. After a fulfilling meal, we went down the stairs for a stroll on the beach and bid adieu to the cool and pleasant evening.
