Thursday, January 04, 2018 0 Comments A+ a-

Being Goan going to beaches in every two days is very common. And trust me there is lot more and many things to explore in Goa other then beaches. Beautiful churches, temples, mosques, Portuguese house, Konkani speaking people, greenery, mountains, rivers, lakes and much more. Even though there are so many various tourist attractions in Goa there is a unique Food (especially seafood), different flavours which mainly involves Portuguese way of cooking.

Omidivan is a new restaurant in Al Karama which opened few months ago, which serves authentic Goan food. Restaurant is little bit interiors but easy to find with Google maps and there is lot of parking in front of the restaurant. The ambience is very calm and spacious. The staff is very energetic and they speak "Konkani" (after long time I spoke konkani and they speak other languages also). They have beautiful pictures hang on wall which depicts beauty of Goa.

What We Tried There:
  • Ros Omelette
  • Prawns Biryani
  • Kingfish Masala
I had gone there especially to have "Ros Omelette", Ros means gravy in konkani. A very simple street food which you can have anywhere in Goa. It is a spicy chicken gravy on top of the fried omelette eaten with Portuguese bread. If I start then I won't stop raving about this dish. The quantity, flavors, taste, aroma was just bang on WOW. Even if you don't have any plans to go out then make a plan and visit this place to have Ros Omelette definitely #MustHave dish.

It won't feel right if I don't try anything from seafood, we chose Prawns Biryani. It had good quantity shared by two to three people served with Raita. It had amazing aroma and taste of biryani just tantalized my taste buds because of which I ate more.

Lastly I had to try something with Kingfish, we decided to try Kingfish Masala. It is spicy but you will love it. It have goan taste just the way how Portuguese cuisine was before in Goa, I #HighlyRecommend to try it out.

The portions served was great for the prices. I am definitely going back to try out Bebinca (Dessert), Kingfish Xacuti and Chicken Cafreal.
