Food of Goa

Goa is home to everything refreshing, zesty, exotic and colourful. And this includes Goan food. The food here is a blend of Konkani, Hindu, Portuguese and Catholic cuisines, providing wide and vibrant choices. Seafood, coconut milk, rice and local spices are the main elements of Goan cuisine and fish, curry and rice form the staple food. Goan food with its unique combination of coconut, rice, and spices form a rich Portuguese as well as South Indian cuisine. 

Traditional Goan dishes are xacuti (spicy chicken or meat cooked in red sauce), vindaloo (spicy dish marinated with vinegar and garlic), cafreal (fried chicken cooked in green masala and toddy vinegar), and bebinca (Goan dessert layered with coconut). Also, do try the Goan alcohol - feni made with cashew or palm toddy.
