This time the excuse isn’t the inevitable “Can’t seem to find anything to blog about…….” Or “Been hit by the blogging block” sort of thing. It’s because we have been busy trying to make some sense and order out of chaos surrounding us.
Here's a place that offers you the option of "Chiniese", Continental, or Goan food with a common theme of Chicken running through all 3 cuisines. If you're vegetarian like me you're stuck with "Pasta" or "Spageti"!
Now that our internet is back, I’m back to posting though I’m still a little short of time to write out posts. Unpacking and settling things in the middle of everything else, seems to be taking up more of my time and effort than I expected.
That hasn’t stopped me from taking photographs whenever I could, and something new that fascinates me are the numerous signs and boards I see these days all around me, related to food or otherwise.
Goa is an Indian state that has a largely tourism based economy, so a lot of what goes on here is designed to attract tourists and persuade them to enrich the local businesses. There are parts of Goa for example, where one can see plenty of signs in only 2 languages, English and Russian, because these places are very popular with tourists from there!
I've never seen a place here (not that I've seen them all, so don't take my word for it) that sells waffles, so this one in Anjuna caught my attention. Unfortunately for me, it was a Sunday, the end of the tourist season and the place was closed!
True Goan fare and it will be good, the chef seems to say. There's another board behind which says "Original Recipe Since 1806", but I'm not sure what the recipe is for. Yet another one from Saligao.
When you know you want simple and filling fare, Indian style, then "Thali Meals" are the way to go even as late as 5:30pm! I would caution vegetarians though, since you don't know what non-vegetarian stuff might have just made it into the Veg Thali, as the kitchens for vegetarian and non-vegetarian food is usually the same! The sign points to the right which is actually the road towards Panaji!
And some more fish to delight seafood lovers. The road to Panaji seems to be a "fishy" haven! There's Chonak (White Snapper) and Shark and even some "Sqeeds" should you like to try them...........
