Casa Sarita, Goa

Address: Arossim Beach, Cansaulim

Tel: 91-832-272-1234

Casa Sarita, in the Park Hyatt Goa, is unusual in several ways, starting with its self-taught female chef. Rather than wear traditional whites, Sarita Carvalho rules her open kitchen in a floral dress and head scarf, and turns out dishes of nuanced simplicity. Black-and-white tiles, hanging lamps, and simple furniture underscore the homey vibe. As is typical of Goa, seafood and pork dishes are the highlights. The difference is that spices are used judiciously: Kingfish curry isn't doused with coconut and red chilies, while pork vindalho is spicy and tangy, just as it should be. Beer or feni, a local spirit made with cashews or coconut, stands up to the robust regional flavors (entrées, $12–$60).
