I recently had the pleasure of dining again at The Pier Seaside Bistro in Mormugao, Goa, and I must say it was a delightful experience. From the stunning seaside location to the scrumptious food and refreshing cocktails, The Pier tingles with freshness.
I’ve been to the Pier Seaside Bistro both in the night and the day, and I must say it can be appreciated more fully in the daytime. The view is simply to die for and the food doesn’t disappoint.
First and foremost, I must highlight the rawa fried mussels, which were an absolute treat for seafood lovers. The mussels were perfectly cooked and coated in a crispy rawa (semolina) batter that added a wonderful texture. The flavors were well-balanced, allowing the natural taste of the mussels to shine through. It was a fantastic appetizer that set the tone for the rest of the meal.
Moving on to the next starter, the bosun chicken was a standout dish. The chicken was tender and juicy, marinated in a flavorful blend of spices that created a delightful burst of flavors with every bite. The portion size was generous, ensuring a satisfying and filling meal.
The aloo paratha, a popular Indian bread stuffed with spiced potatoes, was simply delicious. The paratha was beautifully cooked, with a crispy exterior and a soft, flavorful filling. It paired perfectly with the other dishes, adding a comforting element to the overall meal.
When it comes to beverages, The Pier offers a variety of tantalizing options. The feni cocktail was a unique and refreshing choice. Feni, a traditional Goan spirit made from cashew apples, was blended with a perfect mix of fruit juices and garnished with fresh mint. The result was a well-balanced and flavorful cocktail that captured the essence of Goa’s coastal vibe.
To complete the dining experience, I indulged in a classic pina colada. The Pier’s version of this tropical favorite was spot-on. The combination of creamy coconut and sweet pineapple created a smooth and delightful cocktail that transported me to a beach paradise. It was the perfect way to end the meal on a sweet and refreshing note.
The ambiance at The Pier, Seaside Bistro was truly captivating. With its stunning seaside location, the sound of the waves crashing, and the warm sea breeze, it provided a serene and relaxed atmosphere. The service was attentive and friendly, adding to the overall positive experience.
In conclusion, The Pier, Seaside Bistro in Vasco, Goa, is a must-visit for seafood enthusiasts and those looking to enjoy a memorable dining experience with terrific ocean views. There’s much here to stimulate your senses and your palate!
