Shamba in anjuna is somewhere ive really been waiting to try out. They dont do that much vegan aimed dishes so while we have a man down [ok woman with typhoid] , i thought id visit here and get my fix . Great service, cool music, interesting menu and premium pricing. It was pork 3 ways but with mash [as opposed the butterbean puree]. 600r was the price, with 100 for the kingfisher ultra.
Bread complimentary was served, good start fresh butter and true home baked bread which you can tell a mile away from the texture of it.
Pork was delish and melted in my mouth and the crackling was ultra crispy . The stuffed croquette was excellent too. Its fine dining style so if you are coming to fill your greedy boots with a man mountain of chips it isnt going to happen , but the portions where perfect for me . The chef and head waiter both came to check everything was good.
Went for the passion fruit pavlova and ice cream to finish the evening , it was meringue pieces with chunks of orange and ice cream with small black crisp pieces which was probably something exotic like passion fruit seeds or something ! the only thing i would have done differently is an little extra blob of vanilla ice cream .
Honestly without a shadow of a doubt nowhere in anjuna comes close to this place and ive pretty much done them all. It would be hard to beat it in Goa . All hail shamba the new king of anjuna , and a hygiene rating of 10 .
