Our Goa Sausages featured in Mid day

At Gables, a no-frills restaurant in Colaba, the sausages are supplied by a Goan aunty who sells it at the bustling Mapusa market in north Goa. “Several such local women sell the product. They’ve been making them for years without using any machines. No one knows the craft better than them,” reveals Joel Fernandes, third-generation owner of Gables that opened in 1956 and has been serving Goan fare for 10 years. He orders 25 kg every month. “Earlier, it was difficult to source but now, we’ve set up a system to obtain it via road where the sausages are put on a Mumbai-Goa bus.”


Not as famous as Bebinca,but a delicious dessert nonetheless.Made with jaggery,coconut milk and dry fruits –  this deep brown caramel colored delicacy is available during select months at our restaurant.
