With the holiday's around the corner you might be looking to pinch a few pennies. But just because you are on a budget it doesn't mean you can't treat yourself to a meal out. While the Marina District is well-know for its fine eateries that does not mean that you cannot find a deal in this neighborhood. Here are a few places that are big on flavor, but easy on the wallet.
After grabbing a table, we perused the drink menu, which offered beverages (in half pint and Imperial pint sizes) that you would find in the U.K. I settled on a Snakebite - half lager and half Strongbow cider - which went down much easier than I would have liked! A Shandy Bass Ale with a splash of Sprite indian lamb curry and a Smithwick's Red Irish Ale were also tempting choices. If you're looking to save some money, The Whip Tavern is also a BYO, with a reasonable $2.50 corkage fee.
In West Indian cuisine dishes, a delectable delight can be felt in Goa food. The influence of Portuguese, who rule there for a long time, can be seen very easily. Coastal food is liked a lot in this region. People like to take pickles as a part of their regular diet.
What you get - The restaurant is famous for its south Indian fare. They also serve indian cooked lamb curry, Chinese and Jain cuisine. But these are priced above the norm. Being in this restaurant and not trying their specialties would be a crime.
The moment you step leftover lamb curry into the restaurant the interiors leave you mesmerized. Highly stylized and apt lighting and dark wood interiors add to the striking ambiance of the place. The seating arrangements provide ample space for chit-chats and conversations.
When slow cooking is needed, it is important that a key hole fire pit be made and a space between the rocks left open. This is so you can continually add more coals as they burn down. Just remember that a lot of heat comes off coals (especially hardwoods) so do not pile them up too high under a cooking lamb meal. Keep an eye on the meal and if it is boiling to fast, pull out some coals.
Any dish you order will most definitely make you comfortably full. The typical expense is around 4 pounds for a meal. The servings of rice and curry are generous and will make you happy, as well as keep you warm while you eat outside under the awning. If you cannot stand eating outside, there are takeaway options available for you.
However, if you are on the western coast of India, especially in Mumbai, (the economic capital of the country) you will witness an amazing sight: people thronging the beaches to throw coconuts into the sea, in order to appease the sea god! This is the full moon night, and is called Nariyal (coconut) Poornima (the full moon)!
