Goa Portugesa: "Whiff and Flavor of Goa" Mumbai Restaurant Tip by wrldtravler
Mumbai Restaurants: 328 reviews and 283 photos
Situated behind the Hinduja Hospital and opposite the Mahim Post Office, is a seafood fancier's paradise: kurleo, teesro, sungta, kalwa, mhori, pomfret, para, lobster, you ask for it, they will get it for you.
Favorite Dish: The prawn balchao is to my mind the piece de resistance of the menu. Now balchao is not a dish everybody can eat. It is too strong, too sour, too aggressive, too Goanese. You have to develop a taste for it. In essence, it is a pickle, the Parsis call it kolminu achar, but the Goans eat it as a dish. I understand there are seven to eight types of balchao, subtle distinctions exist between the balchaos of Bardez and those of Salsette.
Address: Hinduja Hostipal, Mahim
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
