A Slice of Goa in Mumbai, Goa Festival 2018

There’s a sound at the gates and it’s an earful.
Growling tummies of Dadar's and it’s neighbouring residents.
At Dr. Antonio D’Silva Technical High School.
Like bees to a comb, they swarmed this eighth edition,
So welcome The Goa Festival nothing short of an eyeful.

In a two day span, it’s all Culture and Flavour,
Competitions and Programmes and dishes to savour.
Talent Shows, Musical evenings, Recipe Contest.
One to even check which healthy baby was the best.
But once we saw food, we forgot the rest.


Food Stalls

The place to really be was the ground floor,
Tantalizing senses with an aroma galore. 
Tal-lela Paplet is where time will freeze.
In this part of the world, Fried Pomfret is the cheese! 
We’re not done yet, a couple more of these.

The Indian Mackerel is common in most parts.
But it’s known as Bangda to us all.
This dish sends the flavour right to your heart.
Just like the Bombil from the next stall.
This is every seafood lover’s journey to start.


Kamat’s Just Fry Eat

Marinated Pomphrets, Bombay Duck, Prawn Curry, Fish Thaalis and more decorated the first stall from the staircase. Just Eat Fry (JFE) is quite a popular name in Dadar and its great to catch up with the team at the fest. JFE, on a regular basis, supplies its patrons with fresh fish ( raw and cleaned ) with the option of over 30 different marinations. In case you just aren’t in the mood to fry anything, sit back and relax while they send you a cooked fair, beautifully fried or grilled if you are health conscious. They have an outlet in Shivaji Park and sell fish over the counter
as well as provide home delivery.


Tradition of Taste

Right from Rava, Dink and Aliv Laddus to Barfis, Karanjis and Chiwdas, Tradition of Taste
offers its customers a variety of sweets and savouries. 
“Our snacks are not just home-made, they are undoubtedly made from quality ingredients. We believe in eating food that is good, pure and wholesome,” said Mrs.Charusheela Nirgudkar . Our specialities include Strawberry Coconut Barfi, Mango Karanji, Kesar Karanji, Puranpoli with Kesar, Elaichi & Jaiphal, Paushtik ladoo, Aliv ladoo. All our food products are 100 % vegetarian.”


D’Costa

It is team D’Costa’s fifth year with the Goa Festival and they are just as excited
as they were during their first. 

Mr. D’Costa, “Our journey began in Goa & we have been in business for over 18 years. What’s sets us apart is that almost every ingredient used in our food is homemade & most of it is prepared in Goa and with a lot of love. We do party orders too! Some of our specialities are our prawn & squid preparations, fish pickles & chicken Cafreal.”


Natasha's Goa to Bombay

The fairly new baby, Natasha's Goa to Bombay, seemed to be shining quite brightly at the fest. With friends and family helping behind the counter, we could see Natasha needed every bit of help she could get. Their unique menu set them apart from the rest.

Natasha, “I shifted to Mumbai about 10 years ago bringing along with me some delicious flavours of Goa. Everything about me is Goan, in fact even the fish here today is Goan. I wanted to make sure I give my customers a 100% Goan treat. Some of our unique specials include fish shawarma for Rs.200, Chonak Fry Rs.350 for 2 pieces, Seafood Omelette, Prawns for Rs. 300.. and the rest you will just need to drop by and explore.”


Mahanand

Madhavi, “ Mr. Ramdas Pethkar and his mother have been in the business for over 10 years...

...We have been a part of this festival since its first year. Some of our specialities include Crabs, Shellfish, Crab curry, Fish fry.”


Ruchik

Mrs. Rangnekar, “We have been in the business for over five years. Our specialities include chicken, king fish fry, tiger prawn fry, cutly fry, Goichi Uddamethi...

...We also sell some special Goan treats & ingredients.”


Chill Pill
 

To give everyone a breather from the afternoon heat, the Chill Pill stall provides you with Ice-Creams, Faloodas & Mastanis. This owner of this stall doesn’t have a shop and only showcases her food products in the exhibition, so you definitely might want to check it out.


Shivrak

Goan delicacies are not only limited to Non-vegetarian food but also have a lot of delicious vegetarian dishes too. Shivak aims to highlight this rarely explored side of the Goan cuisine. A group of young engineers & food scientists have come together to put Shivak together and it is their first time at the Goa Festival. Along with vegetarian delicacies, the stall also offers Goan mocktails such as Panak, Benaulim Cooler, Bogmallo Mara Mari.


Ekadashi

Ekadashi offers street food such as Vadas, Pattices, Samosas to name a few. What we saw flying out of their stalls the most was the Missal. Do you know they serve an Upvaas Missal? 


The Sea Food Lovers 

Keshava Karthikeyan, “One word for the flavours- exquisite. I had an amazing experience! My favourite dish of the festival would be the Chicken Cafreal, I loved it!”


Susan, “ I lived in the UAE for over 30 years. When I was young, my mother to try to teach me out Goan recipes, but I didn’t take a lot of interest. I regret that now. 
I love trying out food and visit quite a few food festivals. I am a bit disappointed with the festival this year, there is too much hotchpotch. Knowing the turnout, the tables & chairs provided are ridiculously low. There isn’t half the crowd here yet and there is already no place to sit. In fact, there was no fish in the fish curry we just got.
My favourite stall would be D’Costa. D’Costa is very famous for their sardines in Goa!”


Exhibition 
The upper level of the school had a number of stalls right from Acupuncture to Clothes to food… and more! Where there is food, we shall be… and hence we decided to peek
at a few stalls exhibiting food.


Ruchik Purumet

Saili Ajgaonkar, “I am primarily a baker. We are from Goa and have come to Mumbai to showcase our authentic Goan products. This is our first time participating in the Goa Festival. I strongly recommend you try out our Kokum, papads & Bebinca. They will definitely taste different than what you get in the market. To ensure our food tastes its best to you, we ensure our packing is perfect. The Bebinca has been meticulously packed to ensure its flavours & quality Is intact.”


Ruchkar Goa

This stall had some very unique products and we landed up buying quite a few of them. All their products are made keeping in mind the importance of health. “ We have Molasses, homemade wine, cold pressed oil, Cashew fenny and we do not use any preservative so they must be stored in a refrigerator. Our coconut oil is edible & you can fry fish, jackfruit or banana in it. We also have a variety of salts from many parts of the country and the world. Another interesting product we have is the Ratal Sabudana. It is just like sabudana but doesn’t need half or the effort and time to soak pre-cooking. Even though we are from Goa, we deliver in Mumbai.”


A&A Chocolates

Chocolate cake jars, Hot chocolate beans, chocolate roses, Chocolate doll dress, chocolate spoons, its chocolate chocolate chocolate everywhere! 

A&A Chocolates aim to make the world a sweeter place by turning everything into chocolate. You can order from their existing designs or even ask them to customize something just for you. 


Ruchak, Mahim
Ruchak brings to its patrons in Mumbai the most renowned brands of Goa. They have a range of products from Chandelkar, Devgad's Oglay, Pethe from Dapoli plus Goas Star Papads (exclusive). They have many kokam and Mango products including papads and pickles… and some are absolutely delicious!


Now along with food, the exhibition has many stalls showcasing clothes, Goan artefacts and various aspects of the Goan art &  culture.

Royale Masterchef Finedine & Bar, Borivali

Buildings by Nilesh and Ganesh Patil,
Constructors on full throttle.
With a love to explore, both places and food,
They had an idea that was good.
Thus, Royal Masterchef Fine dine and Bar,
Became their baby their star.
This is hard work and dedication not based on luck,
A different world for them to construct.

Ambience

We loved the geometry,
The open place vibe.
We loved all the potted plants outside.
You can easily sit in,
But outside you can’t,
We really wouldn’t mind a table neighbour for a plan.

Mocktails 

Orange Mint Cooler
The moment you read cooler,
You’re going to think refreshing.
Now did this do the trick,
Is probably what you’re guessing.
We’ll assure you it’s a favourite,
Cause we’re going back for round two.
And we felt a hint of Mosambi,
Though it’s not on the menu.


Tender Berry
This drink has fresh cream,
Now before the health-conscious scream,
There is pineapple juice and strawberry crush, which should set things right,
And though this beautiful pink drink looks heavy,
It tastes like a shake and is refreshingly light.


The Green Hornet
A super-hero fights crime,
A good Mocktail fights a bad time,
While the hero makes you smile by fighting villains in the dark.
Apart from the beautiful emerald green colour this fails to leave a mark.


Mixed Fruit Float
Mixed Fruit Float, we love saying it out.
The name rolls off your tongue like a dancing cloud.
But take a few sips and you’ll know the true surprise.
That subtle hint of rose that’s hiding from your eyes.


The Chocolate Shake
Chocolate Ice Cream, Orange Crush and blend with cold milk.
'Twas visually so hearty looked and with texture like silk.
But a few sips in, our hearts and taste buds had noticed something strange,
Thought the shake looked fine, it felt diluted and we couldn't taste the Orange.


Soups

Vegetarian 

Hot Greenish Soup
The ‘ish’ made us ‘ish’ 
We were sceptical to review,
But bloody hell!
That taste changed our view.
There was Broccoli, Zucchini,
And garlic in there.
Our taste buds,
They had a fun fair!
All in all,
We loved it.
This little surprise,
Indo-Chinese twist.

Non-vegetarian 

Tomkha Soup
The Tomkha Soup, from the cuisine Thai!
was an amalgamation of coconut and spice.
With tiny chicken pieces, and a chilli oil drizzle,
It'll lift up your mood by making your tongue sizzle.


Appetizers 

Vegetarian 

Paneer Tai Chi
Take some soy chilli garlic,
And some crunchy scallion leaves,
Take some soft cubes of paneer,
And toss them in these,
Think chilli, soya and Chicken,
But not too spicy.
That’s the kind of dish,
Very Indo-Chinese.


Aloo Cheese Logs
Always say yes please,
Whenever you hear potato and cheese.
The double pointed ovals, nice and brown,
With a slight crisp but softness all around,
The potato was stronger, with no flavour caprice.
We’d probably recommend the use of a different type of cheese.


Pesto Mushroom
Not every dish had its day,
But some still find a way,
The mushroom we tried to savour,
Was button so couldn’t soak in all the flavour,
Not overpowering, but the pesto was over by a bit,
Shiitake could have probably made it a hit.
But don’t let that bring you down about this food,
It has others flavours too that are really very good.

Non- vegetarian 

Honey Mustard Chicken
We’ve often head this name before.
It masquerades as a sauce, sometimes as a dip and some identities yet to be found.
But here it was a cloak. 
These pieces free of bone wore that golden translucent cloak,
A cloak masked by an undertone aura of mustard.
For these bits were the warriors of the night.
And shall be remembered as the victors of the war on taste.


3 Flavoured Spiced Chicken
Here’s a good starter,
So pay attention, please.
It’s sweet and spice,
With a sting of basil leaves.
If anything we feel, 
The sourness was missed.
But we thoroughly enjoyed,
This Indo-Chinese, 65ish dish.


Mahi Tikka
Oh, moist and soft boneless piece,
You were not as creamy as we thought you’d be.
But the coleslaw surprise you brought on the side,
And the smokey flavour that took our tongues for a ride,
We liked you a lot don’t you see.
Oh, moist and soft boneless piece.

Mains 

Vegetarian 

Cheese Fondue
In a dish that felt shallow,
The quantity is actually big.
The cheese sauce and Mozzarella,
Blends to the right kind of thick.
And a tiny bit of cooking wine,
To hold the flavour in place.
And a variety of side dishes,
That fills up your plate.
Carrots, bell peppers, 
And broccoli
And a whole bunch of other veggies 
All sautéed.
And big crispy croutons,
Need we say more.
You can make each bite crunchier,
Than the one before.


Hunter’s Chicken
Grilling a steak is an art that’s complex,
You either get it right or you give the task a rest.
That window is very small.
And in that window, they found what’s perfect,
Put brown sauce on top, a gustatorial delect.
But that was not all.
There was pasta in arrabbiata with fries on the side,
Macedonia Veggies that you just have to try.
This is the Mains you should call.


Lake Fish Forestiere
When you take a fillet of fish and marinate it in mustard sauce,
It already starts to sound nice.
Then you grill it and top it with paprika sauce,
And place it next to buttered rice.
A little more to eat, for the meal to be complete,
So throw in the Macedonia Veggies.
So much on a plate, This dish sounds so great,
Is your mouth watering already?

Desserts 

There were hints of flavours from all the desserts, 
But a unifrom density too.
The coulis was lovely in the Bluberry Cheese Cake,
Now onto the Tiramisu.
The coffee dipped sweet sponge biscuit wasn't there,
Cocoa present, but too mild to get a clear taste.

And the Thandai in the Pannacotta was equally mild,
But that dense taste for all became a base.

Hygiene 
We’re fussy about toilets,
It reflects hygiene.
So we checked out this place 
To see if it’s clean.
The ladies told us,
There are plastic covers for the seats,
You only need to press 
A button on a machine.
When asked with no covers,
Would they still use the loo?
They said it was clean as ever,
And they definitely would do.
...The men were cool too.
