When I visit a place, I usually make a beeline for the local cuisine as far as possible because each region has its own traditional specialties that I would love to indulge in.
However, India being this vast melting pot of cooking styles, almost every location tends to cross lines and serve multiple cuisines. Goa too falls in this category and despite having a strong and typical food presence of its own, it also offers a diverse possibilities to the tourist and also of course to its residents.
So this time since my visit was in connection with the GITM 2019, Goa International Travel Mart, I was bound by the schedule of the media group and hence landed at The Awadh House, which as the name non ambiguously suggests, is a restaurant that serves Awadhi food from the city of Lucknow, the capital of the state of Uttar Pradesh in North India.
And while a true blue Goan restaurant would have been my first choice, I must say that this place did serve excellent food and did manage to mollify my palate, despite hungering for the local 😀
