OMG, the food was so authentic that it's flavour said it all
Genuine Goan flavour of Pinagr, Prawn Curry ..
Ruchin, mhoji pottantli ghantt pasun kuxin sorli
Now, don't ask me what's 'Ghantt' for I don't know myself (literally, it is a 'knot' and not 'bell')
Sadly, I did not wait for xit-coddi and when I went for Pinagr 'its all gone'
Really, the urge or the craving made me sick and  I could feel that in my tummy
We then headed to Bao, a restaurant near Aldona-Corjuem bridge

The whole environment at the Church square will take anybody back to 70s and beyond
A treat to youngsters to know or to get a taste of Goa's past.
I could see the organisers putting in lot of their efforts to make the event a grand success.
Thank you.

Here are some of the pics that I would like to share with you
