wow, what a shocker! a dirty kitchen in India! newsflash!
I was sitting in a hotel restaurant in Tamil Nadu once and a rat fell out of the ceiling.

FDA SHUTS DOWN THE CURLIES IN ANJUNA FOLLOWING THE KITCHEN OF THE SHACK FOUND IN HIGHLY UNHYGIENIC CONDITION

but seriously, I read this joint was already shut down because of drugs.

Good Riddance! Was there last week and that shack had hired goons to harass people on the road leading to it... Very Happy to see it Shutdown. Not to mention the whole atmosphere reeked like a fish market.

Years ago it was THE place to go. Almost a mid 2000s Goa right of (backpacker) passage.

Where are you off to in Goa Sama? Enjoy!

Correct answer!

Have a look at Ourem 88 and Kebab Curry if you're interested in some decent food!

Palolem is now the new Baga. (And Baga is just another Lajpat Nagar). Agonda and Patnem, not far away, are way more chilled and quiet.

BB I respect your opinion in all things (particularly culinary!) but here I humbly disagree. Palolem is not (yet!) even Baga 2008 nor even Anjuna now.

There's no McDonald's, no Dominoes pizza (in fact no international brands) and still no piercingly loud music allowed after 10pm.

I agree it's heading that way, but to call it the new Baga would be a disservice to its wonderful beach, great dining scene and generally chilled vibe.

I do however agree RE Patnem, and would always recommend staying there with the occasional trip across to Palolem (trip!?! You can walk it in 20 mins across the beach).

I'll actually kinda between the two beaches, I'll have to walk maybe 10 minutes. I'm not ON the beach as many places are. I'm in a place that has a pool if I don't want to deal with, well, "Goa beach types."

Exclamation

nope! wish I had known tho!

where I'm staying is less $$. got a "one bedroom apartment" so we'll see how that goes.

kinda weird their pool is IN FRONT of the place but whatever.
a friend tells me it's closer to Patnem than Palolem, a 10 minute walk from Patnem Beach. which is cool, I don't mind walking.

how much do you think a ride will be from the airport? or I can have them send a car if they have it but just wondering. thanks!

About 1500 INR. I normally use the prepay counter at the airport. You might get to shave a couple of hundred RS off with a pick up but for me priest is easy as their always there and ready.

There's also normally 1-2 people heading that way if you want to split fare.

Cool.

yeah, I figured there will be cars waiting. I just wanted to get an approx. Rs amount on the price, thanks!

I'm looking forward to exploring and I'm spending more days in Mumbai than last time I was there in 2013. I like having NO PLANS!

Hahaha, I was working in a restaurant in the US (in the 1980s) when a mouse fell out of the ceiling and INTO a customer's shirt collar!

Despite that and the staff joints that were kept conveniently on the rafters in the basement next to the walk-in cooler, it ran until 2015 with no harassment from the authorities. It probably cleaned up its act over the years tho.
