We never have enough of Goa, do we? The sea, the shack food, the feni induced music and the numerous bike rides are enough to make us go back to this much loved destination again and yet again. This time Delhi has beckoned Goa and it has come carrying with it, its much loved shack cuisine which is cooking at the Zambar restaurant  at the Ambience Mall in Vasant Kunj, Delhi. So when it invites you for an experiential of the delicious food who am I to say no. It began with table laid with full of freshly cooked mouth watering delicacies even as I was welcomed with a yellow tika by the restaurants hostess in a typical South Indian style. Yes Zambar is a South Indian specialty restaurant, and the Goan shack food festival is for a short time. Exactly till June 5th. So just rush if you are a Goan food lover like me.

Here's what I began with, the Bangda Mackrel Reichado which is infused with Goad toddy vinegar, spicy masala and shallow fried and an out of this world masala rawa fried jumbo prawn. The chef couldn’t keep up with the prawns as it kept disappearing no sooner it appeared on the table.  The stables included Chorize pao - that’s something tasty and delicious you can have at most roadside stalls in Goa and can fill you up if you are on shoestring budget,(somehow it always reminds me of anda bun in my college canteen) steamed Goan red rice, Sungtyache pulao, sausage pulao and sannas. I am not much of Chorize fan because of its strong taste and stick to pork vindaloo most of the time with the staples, I did try Chorize sausage stir fry with onion and green peppers and found it oddly satisfying to the palate.

What I enjoyed thoroughly was the fish curry with traditional Goan spices, coconut milk and kokum. Exceptionally cooked to perfection it tasted amazingly delicious with the breads dipped in it. The Rossa omelet in gravy was my first ever taste and loved it for its simpleness and wholesomeness and the fact that you could have it for breakfast as well as daytime meals. The meal ended with Bebinca, the traditional layered cake served with ice cream.
