When it comes to finding authentic food, trust the locals – based on the recommendation of a co-passenger in the local bus, I stumbled upon this ‘mess-type’ bar & restaurant in Calangute serving Goan Fish Curry Rice Thali.
Sai Prasad Restaurant looks like a proper ‘hole in the wall’ place with minimum ambiance packed with delicious food and beer. Although they serve pretty much everything from the sea, its the Goan Fish Curry Thali which holds the numero-uno place among the patrons.
The Goan Fish Curry Rice Thali is a delicious meal comprising of Goan Fish Curry, Rava-fry Fish, Salad, White Rice, Pickle, Subzi, Papad, Yellow Dal with coconut (trust me it tastes good) and Rava-fried potato fritters (do not forget to ask for more fritters).
