A ‘key to a good food’ here in Goa. While one might have heard about a Boat Quay in Singapore, which is known for good food and entertainment, in South Goa at the Royal Orchid there is a restaurant by that name right on the beach which promises the ‘key to good food’. Right on the beach seductively lit with flickering candlelight, the place has elegantly moulded white fiberglass furniture which adds to the class. Start with a glass of wine or the Ice-cool barman special cocktail. Let the evening breeze whisper through your hair. And as evening falls and the chefs have the BBQ flames ignited settle down to enjoy special Grilled or Tandoori Seafood. Take in the experience of live cooking.
The Chefs offer a creative menu choice. Start with the Prawn Stick cocktail. It’s an old recipe with a new twist. After aperitifs move over to the attractively laid tables. The crockery – each preparation has its own styled plate…a seashell for the seafood…an oval one for the chicken…and a thali-styled one for Indian. Chicken Satay or Mixed Seafood Brochettes with it’s Terriyaki sauce complements the skewer of calamari, prawn and fish to perfection. Fish lovers this is your key to unlock those cravings.
The signature dishes include the Chef’s Royal Platter, Murgh Malai Tikka dusted with chilly flakes or Beer Batter Fried Fish accompanied with mango chutney, The desserts too add to the flamboyance. A big bowl and a ladle, brought to the table, the ladle lit, the spirit belching flames in the night air and poured into the bowl. Flambeed Gulab Jamun…the brandy soaks into the syrup and into your senses. If one takes a look at the economics for this sizzling affair check the prices. Competitive to the core. So a combo of old favourites with innovations, competitive pricing, an environment unparalleled for enjoyment…the key is definitely with Boat Quay Grill.
