Pristine beaches, a whole lot of sun, spicy vindaloo, and pocket-friendly alcohol — that’s Goa for you. But come winter and you’ll reckon Goa as the land of trance-music parties. Britto’s gives you a balanced flavour of both cultural exoticism and an alternative edge of desire.
While you are holidaying in this melting pot of Indo-Portuguese culture, you must come down to Baga beach. Eat and drink at Britto’s, an institution in itself. Start off with the Seafood Platter and the Calamari Rechard Dry, a delicious stir fry in local Goan masala.
The bar menu has a fairly extensive whisky selection to choose from. You have it all – from Islay and Highland to Speyside. Britto’s sells single malts and blended variants of scotch by the bottle at prices that are to die for.
Feni by your side, whether cashew-based or made from toddy palm, Britto’s is the perfect place to watch a beautiful sunset and enjoy the cool evening breeze. There’s a tattoo studio right inside Britto’s. Get inked for the first time or the seventh, if that’s the case! There’s an eclectic variety of designs to choose from. You can opt for an element of your own and let the artist tweak in his own alterations.
Lunch at Britto’s can be quite a spread. You should order some ‘poye’, which is Goan brown bread and ‘sannas’, the local take on idlis. There are a whole lot of Goan curries that you could order. There’s baffad, xacuti, cafreal, and caldin, all available in chicken, fish, crab, and prawn variants. The curries are spicy but extremely tasty at the same time. The best thing about them is that though they all are essentially Goan curries, they all are distinct in terms of their flavor and color.
Desserts at Britto’s can spoil you for choice. The blueberry and baked cheesecakes, apple pie and the chocolate ganache on their menu will make you feel like a child in a candy store. If you are unsure about what to order, just order them all!

Douglas and the Giant of Atholl
The Scottish drink Atholl Brose, has a story to tell. Steeped in history and a dash of Scottish folklore, much of it exists in the realm where facts bleed into fiction and reality into imagination. Scottish legends can take a number of turns - romantic or gory, charming or frightening, playful or cautionary. The Scottish legend of Douglas who had slayed the Giant of Atholl is a bit of this and a tad of that.Read More
Tracing the Roots of Johnnie Walker
Kilmarnock - a bustling hamlet of East Ayrshire, Scotland– stood as a testimony to the 200 year old legacy of the giant, Johnnie Walker until 2012. Soon after, world’s largest distiller Diageo, hell-bent on shutting down Johnnie Walker’s Kilmarnock bottling plant, forced the town to loose its most prized possession. There was no chance of a reprieve – the plant was shifted to a new bottling hall at one of Diageo's distilling unit at Leven in Fife. Kilmarnock was shattered!Read More
