After an hour-long ferry ride from Mumbai to Mandwa and then the journey by road for about 45 minutes had turned us quite ravenous. So just after dumping our bags in the hotel, we immediately headed out scouting for a luncheon retreat. The hotel front desk had advised us to try ‘Sanman’ for good seafood and google also corroborated the suggestion. A quick trip by an auto-rickshaw had brought us to the restaurant; but to our dismay, we discovered a mini crowd (all guided by google perhaps!) gathered at its entrance all desperately waiting for the seats. After a good half an hour of lingering around, we were ushered into the non-AC section of the restaurant, the air-conditioned luxury was simply chock-a-block with many more aspirants.
We had asked for a vegetarian thali each for two of us – the thali comprised a bowl of rice, one chapatti, two types of lentils, cabbage sabji, potato sabji, solkadi and papad. We also ordered a plate of Bombay Duck fry and a portion of mussel masala for enjoying the seafood specialities, the restaurant was so famous for. The thali was quite filling and Bombay Duck was just too fresh. Mussels, prepared in Konkani (‘Gomantak’ or the Hindu Goan culinary style as proclaimed by the restaurant) did add a new twist to our taste buds. And quite a pocket friendly bill for the lunch did add to our gastronomical delights.
