Biryani cravings can hit you anywhere – even when you’re surrounded by scrumptious seafood in Goa. But fear not, for Anjuna’s Biryani Place is cheap with lip-smacking, authentic biryanis, yet a strong Goan feel with outdoor seating, lantern lights hung from the ceiling and bamboo furniture. The place looks particularly magical at night when the lights are lit. Try the classic Dum Biryani or, if you’re willing to experiment a little, the Calamari Biryani; both are served with raita and a pickle. They also serve seafood – you can pick from their fresh fish and get it cooked to your liking.
This cute, little eatery tucked into a narrow lane has been a huge hit among tourists and locals for a while. Located inside a 150 year-old Portuguese heritage home, this restaurant has won the Times Food Award for Best Goan Portuguese Casual Dining multiple times. You can try Goan cuisine classics like Lamb/Pork Vindaloo, the Goan Prawn Curry or the Chicken Leg Chop (crumb-fried chicken leg cutlet served with a side of fries) to taste their very best. Served with chilled beer, their seafood options are capable of defining your Goa experience.
This fast-food joint offers kebabs, burgers, fried chicken and shawarmas that are insanely cheap and mouth-wateringly delicious. Located in a tiny, bright yellow house and with colorful plastic chairs, this joyful place is very popular amongst locals. It might not be the healthiest eating joint in town, but if you want cheap and are craving street food, look no further!
