Go Goa – The Fisherman’s Wharf
The Fisherman’s Wharf is one step closer to Goa that too in Bangalore. Located close to Sarjapur Road the outlet is huge when it comes to size. Each different cottage is named after a famous beach in Goa. There is even a place to sit under the stars and enjoy the vibrant colors of this place. What makes this place different than any other place is the mesmerizing soothing music in the air with delectable dishes. The essence of Goa can be found everywhere right from the seating arrangements to the lamps to the paintings on the wall.
With a central bar, The Fisherman’s Wharf lights up in the evening with the huge gas torches in the middle of the outlet. We went here when the Goan Carnival was running, therefore the outlet had Live-Music. The music played by the local band was simply fantastic. On top of that people dressed up for the carnival and super-entertained the crowd. Amazing time spent at The Fisherman’s Wharf.
We started off with a few drinks and appetizers. The Fresarita and Moji-M-Tarita both were amazing. For appetizers we had the Honey Chilli Potato – with Garlic, Til Tandoori Aloo, Zafrani Panner Tikka and Badami Broccoli. The Honey Chilli Potato’s were deep fried potato wedges tossed with garlic, chilli and honey with sesame seeds. Delicious! The Til Tandoori Aloo were potato’s filled with dry fruits mix. Exotic! The Paneer Tikka was so so and could have been well marinated. The Badami Broccoli was succulent and soft. The malai coating made the broccoli melt in mouth, a must try! The fresh salad with homemade mayo was a hit.
The Fisherman’s Wharf had a huge spread of vegetable gravy like the Bhindi Do Pyaza, Dal Makhani, Mushroom Tonak, Cauliflower Caldin, Paneer Kurchan. All the gravies were delicious especially the Mushroom Tonak and Cauliflower Caldin. The Dal Makhani was buttery and super-flavorful. But what really stand out was the simple Ghee Jeera Rice and Dal Makhani. Amazingly amazing!
We left a little appetite for the desserts like Bebinca and Devil’s Chocolate Cake with Icecream. You would taste the hint of spices likes cinnamon, vanilla in the Bebinca. Goes really well with the vanilla icecream. The Devil’s Chocolate Cake was also inviting.
Overall the best experience in Bangalore and the Goan Carnival was icing on the cake.
