SMASHING SUZIE’S

Smashing Suzie’s

If anyone could paint a picture with food, then you would find several masterpieces here. This is where with the vibrant colours of seasonal ingredients, Suzie lovingly crafts her art.

Welcome to Suzie’s.
Tucked away in a forested bylane of Assagao next to Vianaar’s luxury apartments in Goa El Rocio, Suzie’s is a cozy little garden restaurant that enraptures you at once. It reflects Goa’s picturesque charm perfectly with a touch of the urbane. Intimate for a romantic dinner yet spacious to host birthdays and celebratory events; or just to enjoy a tapas-and-cocktail evening, Susie’s is alive with creativity.

Every six weeks, the menu gets a makeover to accommodate the freshest of local ingredients and seasonal produce. Founder and head chef of Suzie’s pet detox is whipping up gourmet delicacies for the semi-set, five course fusion food menu. She culls her inspiration from her hearty Punjabi food background, Oxford Brookes training, and gourmet experience in Melbourne and Mumbai. The tasteful fare is teamed with cocktails and a well-stocked bar for the ‘spirit’ually inclined, and a variety of thirst quenchers for those who aren’t.

Suzie’s is the brainchild of Suchint Dhillon and her entrepreneur partner, wildlife enthusiast, Kanak Seth. They insist on preparing absolutely fresh food, and pride themselves on being a near-zero wastage restaurant. Suzie’s is a reservations and dinner only restaurant, bookings accepted a day prior. A dinner will cost INR 1500 for a five course meal. You can pick from vegetarian and non-vegetarian options for each course. So if you’re heading to holiday homes in Goa, Suzie says, “Come on over!”

MONSOONS IN GOA

Goa Monsoon

Yes the math is quite simple. As the heat and humidity increase, the number of tourists to this coastal haven decreases to a trickle in the monsoons. That’s because most people do not know that Goa is its lushest best at this time.

They say that in Goa the parties never stop. In the rains, it’s a definite party time with Mother Nature taking over the floor. June to September open up a facet of Goa, which is otherwise not evident during the peak tourist months. With the Konkan coast experiencing quite a few thundershowers and abundant rainfall, the otherwise peaceful Arabian Sea is caught up in an excited play as the dancing raindrops ride its swelling crests. Patches of emerald dot the rain drenched beaches; and Goa’s famed waterfalls are their roaring, torrential best. Flowers burst out in a profusion of colour; and the iconic rice paddies look breathtakingly verdant. After the soaring summer temperatures, the rains infuse new life into the wildlife sanctuaries.

Swimming in the sea, of course, is not advised due the stronger currents and rough tides, but Goa opens up its heart to explorations by walking and trekking. Add to these a generous sprinkling of bird watching, safari tours, and white-water rafting, and Goa is sure to appease the adventurer in you.

If you’re a hopeless romantic at heart, we say, give us a coffee on a rain-drenched verandah any day. Definitely not a bad idea to look up luxury villas for sale and rent in Goa!

The monsoon magic continues with a fill of song, dance, and merriment. The 150 year-old monsoon festival Sao Joao, the feast of Patolleanchem, and the mud games of Chikalkala, make sure the rains don’t rain on your parade. The irony is that monsoon is considered the ‘off-season.’ But with the hotels and holiday homes in Goa available at unbelievably reasonable prices, it’s a steal deal to tick Goa off your bucket list during the rainy season. After all, Goa is much more than sand, sunset, and sangria!
