Martins Corner - South Goa

This new year was my first visit to Goa and after celebrating New Years on beach and sleeping early (read: passing out) next day luckily there was no hangover. And the only person who has being to Goa told us that we should go to Martins Corner as it has the best food in Goa (we could not argue on that because we have not eaten at any place in Goa)

So after driving down the small lanes towards our first New Years Lunch we reach Martins Corner which already seemed packed but luckily for 3 of us we got a table as soon as we entered. Well, later we came to know that the person who has suggested about the place does not like Goan Food o_O

We sat down and proceeded with ordering drinks first and for me I go for things which I have not tasted are ordered first. I ordered Coco Loco which is mix of Coconut Milk, Cream, Fenny and Rum. It was strong but was not that chilled.

Then we started off with Papad Prawns and it was something like Spring Rolls but way much better. The papad was fried with prawns in it.

Later which caught our eye was Shark Curry and Ox Tongue Roasted and we ended up ordering Ox Tongue Roasted which was very savory and was cooked properly. It was in the main menu section but one can order it as a starter.

Always suggested do not order anything other than the Goan Food here as for other cuisine you shall get it anywhere. Then for main course we went for Pork Vindaloo with Pav and Garlic Naan (yes the person who does not like goan food ordered that)

And to top it off we finished the whole course with a Chocolate cake with vanilla cream which was super awesome.

This is the place where you should never be in hurry, well who is in hurry when they are in Goa and try to reach before 3 PM for lunch as they close the doors and do not let anyone enter.
