Mum's Kitchen at Miramar - Goa

In our to trip Goa this year one of the noted restaurants was Mum's Kitchen. Well, its my son's hunger that led us there...if not for his inevitable hunger pangs, as we were already enroute to Martin's. In addition to the tantrums and thought process of where to stop and eat, my brother coincidentally did reckon us visiting Mum's Kitchen the same morning via a casual sms, as it was a notable restaurant. So what's all the hullabaloo about was the first thing that went through my head. We reached the place at 3pm, surprising to find that a good crowd was waiting outside the restaurant for a table. We waited a good one hour before we got ours. A quick exchanges of greetings and chitty chat with the waiter on the food and a brief of the menu, the food just worked up onto our table in 15 minutes. I guess my son just had the look "if you don't get me food now, I just may throw something at ya"...

For starters we ordered the Kombdechem Sukhem which are boneless pieces of chicken, marinated in a ground paste of ginger, garlic, corinader, turmeric and tamarind and then shallow fried. These little chicken morsels pieces just disappeared withing minutes of it being served to us. Though the dish was of medium spice level, my 4 year old simple wolfed it down with a smile.

We then ordered a family portion of Pork Balchao to go with the Goan Fat Rice. The gravy though made up of dry shrimps in vinegar and red chilies just exalted our tastes to a next level. The pork meat was done to a melting perfection with a contradicting seafood gravy which somehow did not hinder the taste of the pork meat at all. And of course freshly made bread with butter, with the extra butter for my son.

We skipped the dessert for the sake of the lingering taste of the main dish. Though having said that we opted on dessert, we couldn't but help sneak a piece of Bebinca - authentic goan dessert once we got back to our room. The waiters are pretty much well versed and patient with their customers with quick and prompt service. They were also voted the best restaurant in the category of 'Best Goan' by Times Food Guide in association with The Times of India for this year which is just another feather in the cap. All in all, a must visit, even if you'd have to end up waiting...

  1. I lived in Goa for a couple of years and a meal a week was reserved at Mum's Kitchen. And we'd start our meal with their cheeseling soup. Nostalgic post this is!

  2. I'll make sure to visit Mum's Kitchen next time I visit Goa... Thanks for the review.
