The main door was shut and we entered from the side. The place was completely silent and we were wondering whether it's open. I looked around and saw this brilliantly done place - everything was made of bamboo, it looked like a sushi mat. Literally. The weather was exceptionally good for a July afternoon, and the place emanated a great vibe.
and has an extremely strong pungency more akin to hot mustard than the capsaicin in a chili pepper, producing vapours that stimulate the nasal passages more than the tongue. Yes, it hit the nose! We were also served a special Japanese Soy Sauce called Kikomann which apparently is a well reputed brand in Japan. I picked a blob of wasabi in my chopsticks, lifted the sushi, coated it in the soy sauce and eventually put it in my mouth, I knew this was an experience I'll remember for a bit. The flavours literally melted in my mouth and was a gastronomic delight. There was so much happening with just one bite of sushi.
As we were recovering from the sushi experience I decided to order a platter of chicken dimsums. I love momos otherwise, and you don't easily get them in Goa. In Delhi or Bangalore, you get momos at every corner street food stall. But in Goa it's a rarity. Might as well get a dose of dimsums when you're at an Asian restuarant. I still can't tell the difference between momos, dimsums and wontons, so I don't mind either. For me they're just dumplings that gives me an instant feeling of goodness. That's what good food is supposed to do to you right? Give you an instant high in a way not imagined or thought otherwise!
