1Dining in the Dark
Where: Near Majorda beach, South Goa
Spice Studio, Alila Diwa, turns off the lights once a week, literally! Don’t expect it to be a cozy dinner that you can have with your loved one. It’s much more adventurous and therefore memorable. The focus is on getting you to use the other senses except sight, in order to explore and enjoy the food. The whole idea of touching/feeling every item on the dish and savouring it is worth every penny.
It costs Rs 900 plus taxes. It’s conducted on every Thursday from 8pm.
Where: Vivenda Dos Palhacos, Majorda
Ever wanted to be at a place where you strike a conversation over dinner with some unknown person and really hit it off? If yes, this is your place. The Old Portuguese mansion is beautifully restored in its beauty and run by the brother-sister duo. The icing on the cake is their community dining table for 15 people wherein guests sit for dinner and have meaningful, fun conversations with strangers.
The prices may vary depending on the spread. A la carte is available too. Check their page here.
