"I'm not much of a drinker, though I do have a soft spot for a good gin. However, the Captain Espresso (a coffee-based Martini) at Antares in Vagator, and it's chocolate counterpart at The Oak Barrel in Panjim are deserving of mention." -Fernando Monte Da Silva

Bomra’s
"It's a great place for Burmese fusion cuisine, and it's managed to keep itself relevant, as well as, consistent for the better part of a decade. What's great on the menu? Everything, to be honest; but the Young Aldona Pork stands out a little more than the other dishes." - Fernando Monte Da Silva
