Because of Goa's historic links to Portugal and also the influx of many Mozambican-born Indians, Portugal has been blessed with plenty of good Goan restaurants. This one is hidden in a hard-to-find street in the Mouraria. Since forever, it has been led by Maria dos Anjos, the woman in charge of cooking the bhaji puris, the crab curry, the “sarapatel” stew, the mirchi and the goat chacuti with onion and pepper salad. You should also try their inventive date-and-cashew nut samosas, made with the same dough as the meat ones (also very good); you'll want seconds.
Time Out tips:
– There is always a crowd or artists and journalists.
– The concept of “mild” is unknown here – everything is medium spicy or hotter.
– Don't forget to bring cash – no debit cards accepted.
