Goa Break!

So was in goa for the weekend. a rundown on the meals

Hotel Breakfast
Hotel Breakfast consisted of eggs sunny side up, toast, juice, coffee. Avg breakfast, not too bad, nothing overly dramatic either.
Puri Bhaji - Spicy, in the morning, never had this for breakfast before. Well done, but not something id like to try again
Aloo Paratha with Yoghurt - Not bad, the parathas were cool, with a helping of onion in it, just wish they were warmer.

Hotel Dinner
Hummus - Not too bad, served with soft whole pita, which were very good. Chana masala and puris (hate puris) but the thing wasnt bad. not too spicy either. The fried rice was disgusting.

Brittos
A goa instituiton on Bagha beach. Not too bad, the ambience is nice, chilled out as most places. The crowd is a mix of family, celebrity, wanna be and the expected dosage of expats.
We had the paneer tikka which was excellent. Really enjoyed it. Chewy, soft and very tasty. Lasagna, not too bad but not exactly what i would expect of a lasagna. Interesting but not recommended. Tiramisu was ok, but weak. Chocolate Walnut thingy wasnt too bad. Drinks Kingfisher, Bacardi Breezers, Damage 540.

Dont recall the name
There was this restaurant just off Calangute Beach opp some clothing stalls. Not too bad. we only got some soup and pizza margeritha. Excellent pizza, very well done with mozzarella cheese and oregano. Def recommend it.
Drink - Mineral Water , Damage 150.

Shalom
Its a meditarranean lounge/restaurant. It had an extensive menu but we didnt want to experiment too much so we went for the Mezze platter which came with some excellent hummus, baba ganoush, tabouleh and cacik. all of it was bloody excellent. didnt expect such good med food in Goa. The restaurant has a branch in Delhi in GK1 for anyone who wants to try. Drink - Sula Zinfindel (excellent, had a whole bottle at Trattoria in Bom) Baileys, Damage 950

Airport
Desperate lunge for food at the airport. mixed emotions. The stall offered batata vada and cheese sandwich which was top notch, bloody excellent. while the restaurant served some disgusting noodles.
