Local Cuisine of Goa
Most of Goan food is an amalgamation of Portugeuse, Konkani, British and Saraswat Flavours. Each dish boasts a delicate balance between sweet, sour, spicy, and savoury. There is extensive use of vinegar in a lot of dishes, like the famous Vindaloo for example. A lot of fresh seafood and pork is eaten here, but there are an array of vegetarian choices as well.
