Nestled on the western coast of India, Goa is home to some of the world’s best beaches and by far the most delicious tiger prawns one could ever imagine! After a short 1 hour flight from Mumbai (Bombay), I arrived in a small yet busy airport that reminded me of arriving in a small island town in the Carribean. With a deep breath, my lungs were on cloud nine; as I had finally gotten away from the burning plastic fires and bumper to bumper traffic of Mumbai.
Looking forward to a weekend of relaxation, I started my journey by eating dinner at a local seafood restaurant (recommended to me by Dhruv’s father) and was drooling over the king fish, garlic cheese naan and the local favorite drink, Fenny (Cashew liquor). To call Fenny a drink would be a deceptive as it has been described by some as turpentine, nail polish remover, and the Indian equivalent to American moonshine. Taking my good friend Sahil’s recommendation, I mixed it with pineapple juice which turned awful into awesome.
