Moira’s roots as an agricultural village offers culinary riches unseen in other parts of Goa. A fascinating example of which is Moidechim Kelim or the popular Moira Banana. It’s an ingredient that’s placed in the able hands of Anju, a local village housewife chosen from a wider search that spanned over 50 Goan households; Anju expertly flavours the Moira Banana with local spices to prepare the popular Rava fried banana snack. Anju’s other standout dishes include Solachi Kadi and Fish Uddamethi prepared with fresh mackerels.
The delectable cuisine of this former capital of Portuguese India can be attributed to its cultural heritage. Shining examples of this legacy can be found in the likes of Fish Dangar, Pork Feijoada or the traditional, spicy favourite Prawn Balchao. All of which can be enjoyed in our serene and scenic dining pavilions overlooking the Zuari river.
Fish, curry and rice is all a Goan needs. Or so the adage goes. Given the universal appeal of all three, you’ll also find them come lunch or dinner at The Postcard Cuelim. Our local chefs of course, are more than happy to go further. So if you’re craving a Pork Sorpotel, Mushroom and Green Pea Xacutti or the day’s fresh Pomfret, all you have to do is ask.
