Goa
A coastal culinary culture, many Goan meals include seafood. Try coconut milk–infused fish curry, fish ambot tik (a sour and spicy curry), or crab xacuti (curry made with a mix of spices that includes cinnamon, nutmeg, and cumin). Pork is popular, appearing in dishes like vindaloo (a hot, tangy curry) and sorpotel (a spicy curry), which are often served with rice or sanna (a dry rice cake) and a spoonful of seafood pickle. There are also abundant vegetarian options, such as udid methi (a hog plum and mango curry) or bhajji (a fritter-like snack). Pair your food with a glass of Sula (an Indian wine), a pint of King’s beer, or with the local spirit, feni.
