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!
Strange Whisky Facts
As a notable, and erstwhile prominent character of a very popular TV show once said, “Knowledge is power.” and we couldn’t agree more. Not only does it make for interesting conversation, but also provides an opportunity to engage and enthral the people around you. When it comes to whisky, one does not have to be an all-knowing wizard to conjure the fascination of others. Although having more than a rudimentary understanding of the world’s favourite alcoholic beverage can help you impress one and all.Read More
