Goa Sausages!

We have been getting comments about the lack of new recipes, we were on vacation drinking feni and eating shenanaós in Goa.

Until the next recipe feast your eyes on these lovely Goan Sausages :)These picture was taken at Santa Cruz Market near Bamboli.

On the trip we managed to get fresh shenanaós from the market and cook them at home, those were the best we got. The food at Florentines was definitely enjoyed although the prices have gone up since the last visit, but its still value for money.

The worst dining experience was at Britto's on baga beach, hardly worth the price and some of the fish we ordered had zero taste as it was not fresh at all. Another lovely dish was the Goa Sausage Lasagna and Pork Ribs in Honey at Ernesto's at Panjim.

Ernesto's prices too are slightly on the higher side, but everythings getting expensive in Goa :) Also the best Beer, Kings is now priced at Rs 20 per bottle and is not very easy to get thanks to Kingfisher. But nothing beats a cold Kings, its the only beer you can drink warm as well, taste's great.

Roadside Goan Food:

You can find treasures at the road side eateries, like the bhaji pau and kapa (potato fried in batter) a friend and brother of ours got for us from a local dhaba called Hotel Vaasu in Moira.

We also had a snack at the road side stall at Aldona, capsicum stuffed with cooked cabbage and stuffed big chillies/jalapenos. But another interesting concoction they had was the poi stuffed with an omelette and chicken xacuti gravy (although this lacked salt) was an awesome experience.
