Be it anywhere in India, a thali is something that is filling, tasty and affordable. So when I visited Goa this time, along with trying a few fancy places, I decided to try a few places where I could have a good seafood meal. These are a few places I tried this time for the fish and seafood thali.
Fish Thali at Sai Bar, North Goa
This place is really pocket friendly and serves good seafood. The thali here consisted of kokam, fried fish, fish curry, rice, kismur, mussels and a salad.
Fish Thali at Fat Fish, North Goa
Fat Fish is popular for its seafood. This thali was not just tasty but the thali itself was plated so well that it gave a seafood vibe in itself. Along with the regular curries and seafood, this one had a vegetarian sabji as well.
Portuguese/Goan Seafood Thali at Antique Mardol, Verna
Not a pleasing experience at this place as the food served was not warm. Most of the stuff on the thali was cold. Liked the solkadi which came in the thali though. This thali had a few Portuguese preparations in it as well. In general, the place is difficult to find, almost like in a basement and very dark. Disappointed with the ambience. Visited the place since I had seen pictures of a thali on a banana leaf and found this place when I looked for the same.
Special Fish Thali at Girish Ranche Ghar, South Goa
Last but the best, this thali was the one I enjoyed the most. This place is a must visit. When in south Goa, do visit this place. The mussels were cooked to perfection and were delicious. The fried fish was also worth it. The quantity offered was amazing as well.
