PEEP kitchen – fine dining
This place was first started near the petrol pump at Caranzalem and now shifted to risara luxury at Taleigao. It was started by the two brothers Gaurish and Amey Naik as they were inspired by their mother’s home cooking. Many of us feel that this place is famous for its Goan cuisine but we are sadly mistaken. This place serves very delicious Punjabi cuisine and Oriental cuisine too. They are always innovating with their Thalis. Recently they had introduced patolyo and kangachyo(sweet potato) nevryo as a sweet dish in their Thali which was a hit with customers.Though patolyo is still made in homes for religious occasions the nevryo have not been heard by most people.
This new place is apt for fine dining concept. Huge space so most customers can be accommodated easily. What I like about this place is the warm welcome given by the security first and then the owners. They have very attentive staff but they don’t intrude on your privacy. The warmth and ambience puts you automatically in that comfort zone where you relax and are ready to attack whatever you can lay your hands on. They have a person who exclusively makes your cocktails and mocktails. Very innovative and refreshing. The hatke types.
Starters can be ordered from a wide range of cuisines whether it’s your Goan fries or cafreal or Peri Peri. The north Indian kebabs or the oriental styles of cooking in their sweet and spicy sauces. You need to make those trips to try it all. The thalis are available in the afternoon and the fish is served on a banana leaf. They use the leaf to serve other dishes too. The traditional way of eating was always on a banana leaf in the years gone by. One can easily say their mother has bound them to their roots and their
Their desserts are superb and in a wide variety. The meetha paan is something to look out for. These two brothers are truly going the atithi devo bhava way and are open to criticism so that they can improve. They do home delivery in Panjim, Dona Paula, Caranzalem and taleigao.. A place to look out for other than goan food. Try their kebabs and Biryani especially the kingfish one
