The Goan: Part 2


The next few days passed by in a daze.
We spent the entire day lazying around and trying to satisfy our enormous appetite.
  That's our interpretation of relaxing.




We tried out a new place called "Infantaria", which always seemed to attract a lot of crowd.
All of these places are in Baga/Calangute since we didn't venture out too far this time.
(Blame the blazing sun)

Lunch was pretty impressive and so we decided to go back there the next morning for breakfast.



Breakfast included the regular.
Coffee + Eggs + Pancakes
That's the standard Goan breakfast, right ? 



The only thing that seemed a bit vague, was that they would charge extra for additional butter/honey/maple syrup.
Not that it made much of a difference, but it just seemed so odd because you hardly come across places doing so.

Next,
We made two visits to the 'Snip Salon and Spa'.
If you ever get a chance, then PLEASE go and check them out.
I cannot recommend them enough.

I tried out their head massage on the first day.
We went back after 2 days, and that's when I tried out the foot massage.




They also have a branch here, in Mumbai, which I am definitely going to check out as soon as I get a chance.

Another one of my favorite places to go to in Goa is 'THALASSA' in Vagatore, Anjuna.
I had gone there first around 3 years ago, and I have to admit that the place suddenly looks too crowded.
They've added many more tables which takes away from serene atmosphere.

But nevertheless, it was a wonderful experience as usual.
You mainly go there to catch the sunset.
The view is simply beautiful.






The sun had settled down by the time we actually decided to order.
They don't have much light there, except for a few fairy lights sprawled around.
So, I couldn't get photos of the food that we ate, except for this ginormous burger.




They also have small little cottages there, which look cute from outside but are terribly tiny.
The route is a bit complicated, but from the looks of it, quite a few people have found their way.
You will too :)

Another one of our meals was at 'Fiesta'..
After our previous Fiesta Fiasco, (In case you don't know what I'm talking about then click here)
we were a bit skeptical to go back.
But the food has ALWAYS been so good, that you can't not go there, you know.

The trip was coming to an end, so everyone's enthusiasm was wearing down slowly.
Nevertheless, we trotted our way to Baga and just hoped that it wasn't another band night.

As soon as we reached there, we realised that the entire place was empty.
So empty that we started to wonder if we should go to a more lively place.

But we decided against it, and picked a table.

 I ordered for the Mediterranean Seafood Salad with Balsamic Vinegar.
I was simply fantastic.
Definitely something that you should try if you like seafood.


Next was The Seafood Soup which wasn't all that impressive.
But it wasn't bad either.
The portion of the soup wasn't that great.
The salad was 10 times better.


But the good news is that they serve some fantastic pizzas to make up for the 'over-in-5-sips-soup'.
Its big enough to feed 2 people, or 1 person if you're a giant.




I wish I had some more photos to show you, but sadly I don't.
We missed out a lot of good places this time because of the heat.
It drains out all the energy that you have.

If you get a chance, also try out Martins Corner. You can check out their website here.
OCoqueiro is another place which you must go to.
Website here.
They serve the most amazing Recheado Masala Fish.

You cannot believe how good it felt to leave noisy Mumbai and go to Super Hot Goa.
I didn't mind getting tanned and fat, as long as I was in Goa.
My Goan roots just come out, you know.

These have been places which normally we ALWAYS go to.
I would love to know if you have any other go-to-spots.
