about firefly goan bistro bar

A 'Bistro' experienceIt's small, it's informal it's a place to relax and sample local and continental cuisine. It's called Firefly and Donavan Vaz has termed it a Goan Bistro. From the simple tiled roof to the open airy feeling (during the day the clusters of bougainvillea outside the restaurant create a vivid splash of color), its lives up to its definition of limited food and informality- it's a Bistro experience.Decor/AmbienceSimple yet appealing, for lunch a table mat orange and red to go with the decor, and for dinner the tables are clad in checked tablecloths, the setting simple. Lunches have (no formal layout for the cover. And when food is served the cutlery is brought together and placed on the table- help you rself. A small sunken stage for the performers yes on Thursday and Friday nights a small band performs. The waiter's uniforms too give the 'Goan feel'; their kurtas have the kunbi material worked into the design. Simplistic, minimalistic, can one say fantastic? Let's wait and see.FoodIt is important for every restaurant to design its menu based on the capability of the chef. And Donavan has done just that. Continental and Goan are his trumps. It is a very simple menu (and rightly so) if his concept is to be termed a bistro. Many places confuse concepts by having lengthy fine dining menu's in informal settings. Start with the Chicken liver pate, the slivers of toast and the scoop of liver is designer and very tasty. You could be forgiven if you ask for more. The firefly prawns is another 'conti' innovation. Lightly tossed in butter and herbs with the salsa and garlic mayo accompanying the preparation it is a preparation which could even grace a gourmet's meal. But then this team has taken their non vegetarian preparations to a greater height. Locals will love the fish fingers with the mayo accompaniment- taste and presentation is highly recommended. For the mains-Fish Amotik, Vegetable Caldin, Prawn curry rice Donavan's boast holds true in terms of his 'Goan' styled recommendations. The curries are rich, individually presented to carry on the concept of the Bistro and as in the case of the prawn curry with the accompaniments of kishmur and tambdi bhaji, as close as it can get to the Goan's heart. His piece de resistance is the BBQ Pork Ribs. Now this will be a case of 'Jack Sprat and his wife'. Remember Jack Sprat could eat not fat so perhaps this preparation would not appeal to the Jack Sprats of Goa. The butcher has temptingly cut the chops to ooze out a generous amount of fat with the meat. Accompanied with potato wedges and baby corn It's yummy and one of the fastest moving items.Plus and MinusAll in all, this restaurant just in its infancy has made the right choices. The non vegetarian food is great the vegetarian starters (mushrooms stuffed with cheese and potato wedges) are tasty too but perhaps would need a slight focus to bring it up to the standard that the non vegetarian dishes show. The Bistro has worked on great presentation, good pricing and taste. The desserts too have some great choices the chickoo mousse (soft creamy and melting) however the restaurant needs to work on the refrigeration as a few ice crystals mar the taste. The Serra dura very tasty as a dessert, but should be worked on without the gelatin to live upto its name but as a dessert just great. The Jamaican caramel that wedge of walnuts, biscuits, wedged with condensed milk caramel and rum well the description says it all. a treat for the 'sweet palate'. For a new entrant, Firefly is making all the right moves. We would like to see it flit away into the future with its glow still remaining to light up the culinary world.Must TryFirefly prawns, Chicken liver pate, goan curries, BBQ Spare Ribsi
