Made by skilled local cooks, Avanilaya whips up some of the most flavoursome Goan and continental dishes, all prepared using local produce and ingredients sourced from the gardens. Each villa has its own kitchen and chef, and while there's no set menu, almost any desired meal of choice can be cooked upon prior discussion with the host. Breakfast (a sumptuous one at that), is included in the tariff.
Pasta and bread are both freshly baked from scratch at the resort's kitchens. A few must-haves are the prawn curry with mango sauce, the Goan red rice, the chilled creamy carrot and apple soup, recheado masala-laced mackerel fry and chocolate soufflé.
