Goa places:
Food and drink in Goa. Most visitors are surprised - and often delighted - at the enormous variety of delicious food available in any Indian town. Restaurants and beach cafes in the main tourist centres offer freshly prepared seafood delicacies, traditional Goan dishes as well as a good range of specialities from other parts of India. To suit the unaccustomed palate, they also have some Western, Chinese and sometimes even Thai and Tibetan options. You will also have the chance to sample exotic sweets and many tropical fruits.

Drinking water used to be regarded as one of India's biggest hazards. It is still true that water from the taps or wells should never be regarded as safe to drink. Public water supplies are nearly always polluted and unsafe. Bottled mineral water is now widely available although not all bottled water is mineral water; some is simply purified water from an urban supply.

Tea and coffee are safe and widely available. There is also a huge variety of bottled soft drinks, including well known international brands, as well as fruit juice in small cartons, which are perfectly safe.

Goa has a reputation for charging the lowest prices in the country for its alcoholic drinks, be it the local feni, sweet wines or beer.
