Food Review: Konkan Swad

A lot smaller than what it looks like from the outside, Konkan Swad is a tiny air-conditioned eatery, and one of the many no-frills restaurants that become popular in their respective areas for serving only one cuisine and thalis. Seafood dishes outnumbering chicken and mutton preparations on the menu, Konkan Swad has several varieties of fish, some of which you may not have heard of before. Everything from sol kadi to shark can be had at this Konkani joint on Goregaon/Malad Link Road, even though this is no fine dining experience and can cause an upset tummy if fate sends you there on a wrong day. Getting to taste different gravies, curries and fried items at inexpensive rates is never a bad thing, especially with a vada (round bread that looks like a puri but is much thicker), but this is basic fare that you get at most gomantak eateries and nothing like what you’d get at a Konkani home.

    You want good sea food you go to Ghajalee (the original one in Parle East) or Highway Gomantak opposite the Indian Oil Building in Bandra. Trust me, no one serves better and more authentic “Konkani” sea food than these two places..

      Yes, sir! It’ll take me some time to write about Gajalee because there’s so much stuff to try! Highway Gomantak I haven’t been to in years… thanks for bringing it up!
