Why is it called Zeebop? Ask Sergio Dias this question and he will say that it was due to the famous Santana, the Mexican America rock guitarist famous in the Sixties. Zeebop! was his 11th studio album, and perchance Sergio was impressed by it to create are cord of his own – this highly rated restaurant. Crouched over swept and flattened white sand, it has perforated mud lanterns bobbling overhead and a hammock between the trees. The rumble of the waves and the thatched roofs add to the charm of rustic Goa. A menu listing a variety of Goan and seafood grills may tempt even the foolhardy on a diet. As you sit on unblemished sand tracks, one can’t but wonder if Santana’s track had anything to do with this concept. “Searching”: yes that was one of the numbers.
If you are searching for seafood, Sergio has the right combinations with Batter-Fried Calamari, or even the Crispy Crab Stuffed Pappadums. Santana plays another track called “Changes”: what changes in cuisine has Sergio in store for us? Goan definitely,with Continental seafood grills and a touch of fish tandoor.Just right for a seaside experience. So try the Prawn Peri Peri, or the Red Snapper with Butter Garlic, or even the Fish Kebabs. The third track is the Sensational kind: If Sergio were working on it, it would be his Goa Fish Curry with rice. Something to dip your fingers in and relish. As you sit there, whiling away the hours, look up to the heavens for a new track. Santana called it the “Brightest star”. You will find it suspended right overhead in the inky dark sky. As you bid au revoir the last track will playing “Over and over”. You will be visiting this Zeebop over and over too.
