If there’s heaven on earth, it has to be a place like Goa. It’s been half a decade since I first went to Goa, with a group of clueless people heading to yet another destination for yet another bachelorette party. My bachelorette party to be precise and that is when my secret affair started. Goa is beautiful and it has so much to offer! It’s just not booze and party! There are people from all over the world, food originating from different continents and so many cultures amalgamating into one, the Goan culture!
The Black Sheep Bistro has a very unique name and I’ll be sure to get the story behind such a quirky name, the next time I’m there. I am so glad that I met blogger Neidhi Kumar(FoodDrifter) at the German Bakery, near Palolem beach, in the morning and she was the one who suggested the name of this pretty place. I had almost decided to go to Viva Panjim again, but then slowly changed my mind! The BSB serves amazing fusion food and I was floored! The place looks classy and neat from the outside and the interiors are not over done. The best thing is the cozy feeling that you get once you enter the bistro. And yes, 4.8 on zomato, isn’t lying!
We ordered the Paan cocktail and a guava based cocktail(sorry, no menu on Zomato), Paan one being one of the best cocktails I’ve ever tasted! The drinks are innovative and well thought of. The calamari and sea food starter is exceptional and please never forget to order that! We had also ordered the chicken fusion Konkan bites which was a perfect blend of konkani spice and soft chicken!
For main course we chose the fish mouli, which was a bit of a letdown as I had expected something extraordinary. The coconut flavor wasn’t that strong. The chocolate salami was something I didn’t expect that I would like that much, but I did! It wasn’t too sweet and chocolate-y and though it looked quite dry, tasted much much better.
Dining at Black Sheep was an experience and not just food. It’s beautiful and elegant and it is in Goa! What more reason does one need to head to this quaint bistro?!
