Menino's - Dona Paula Jetty, Dona Paula, Goa

Menino's hasn't changed a bit in the last 15 years. The food and service are exactly the same, and the prices have gone up very moderately. Ok, maybe that's an exaggeration because my memory isn't that good, but it feels close enough.

This is the kind of place that could quite easily goof up the details of your order while getting it mostly right. It's the kind of place where the local jetty workers would turn up for breakfast and coffee. It's the kind of place that a bunch of guys would just sit at to eat and chat, and of course, it's the kind of place where you do not order experimental stuff, because everything is.

Highly recommended is the Goan sausage bread. It's the best I've tasted in my latest trip to Goa. Not recommended are the samosas. They just aren't samosas, so don't bother with them. I'd also suggest staying away from the water.

Blues rates it:
Food - Good if you know what to order
Service - Goan
Price - Cheap and completely worth it
Ambience - None whatsoever
Overall - Good if you're travelling alone or looking for a quick meal with a view

Recommendation - Go there for a quick breakfast or lunch

Getting there:
Get down to the Dona Paula Jetty, and look out on your right. It's one of the few restaurants there.
