Lives in Crans-Montana, Switzerland
Since May 2013
A resident of India, a student in Switzerland and an enthusiastic traveller who never misses an opportunity to take off... that pretty much summarises my logistics! My travel style is quite eclectic, sometimes local life and other times the luxury route! Usually the first thing I look up when I look up a destination is the cuisine... being a pescetarian can be quite the pesky thing while travelling! I love to see the super touristy stuff but not without adding my own off-beat touch! I truly believe travelling is the most rejuvenating thing in the world, leaving the confines of comfort to explore the expanse of our world! Safe travels always!

Matsya's is a very unique concept: spa + food. It is also a true hidden gem, with a real off the beaten track location to complement its one of a kind experience. The tasting menu is great, as you never know what you are going to get. All you specify is whether you are vegetarian or non-vegetarian, and the chef will use the fresh ingredients of the day to conjure up extremely original flavors that pleasantly surprise you!
La Plage is a casual dining-out spot nestled in Ashwem, a beautiful beach quite unlike the commercial beaches that have become common in Goa. Its French food perfectly compliments the gorgeous ambiance, and its exclusive beach makes it the perfect spot for breakfast and a swim!
This is one of my favorite dining spots in Goa, a casual dining-out restaurant with a stunning ambiance and sunset views. The cuisine is authentic Greek, which may seem a bit odd to indulge in when in Goa, but I promise you that the ambiance is one you will not want to miss out on, especially if you're on a romantic getaway!
This venue offers one of the cheapest and best meals you can get in Goa, and it is especially a must-visit for seafood lovers! Anand's is frequented by all sorts, from locals to high flyers to budget travelers alike, owing to its mind-blowing food. The rava fish fry is a personal favorite of mine and definitely worth the calories!
This is one experience you cannot miss in Goa: Shacking up on the beach after a beautiful swim, eating extremely 'Indianised' versions of the world's cuisine! Souza Lobo in particular is a great restaurant for exactly this, given its perfect location and intensely good Goan food. It's huge in both size and menu choice!
Mum's kitchen is a casual home cooking experience! This place has an extremely homey feel about it, and serves some of the most authentic food in the region! The portions are not excessively big, but the taste makes a visit totally worth it.
This affordable seafood spot is a haven for fish lovers, serving up some of the best fish in town. Although it's situated in a small lane and can often be overcrowded, it's still worth a visit!
Sunset Ashram is a lounge/club that's a great place to chill out in the daytime as well as in the evening, transforming itself from a seaside cafe into a brilliant nightspot when the sun sets. It sets itself apart from the commercial options in Goa with its relatively low key reputation and its incredible music. I would definitely recommend you stop at this place between all that sea food you are bound to eat on your trip.
While rather a commercial lounge/night club, Cubana is still one I enjoy going to. The entry is a bit expensive by Goan standards, but the atmosphere is unbeatable and the location is gorgeous. Perched on a hill, Club Cubana has amazing music, good drinks and a great crowd. It also has a pool and frequent live performances!
This night market is a great place to really immerse yourself in the local setting. There are small stalls where you can purchase things (remember to bargain!) and plenty of food courts offering tasty, budget-friendly eats. It may not have the fanciest presentation, but the experience is definitely worth it!
