A Coastal Odyssey
Embark on a unique culinary journey inspired by the southwest coastal region s of Kerala & Karnataka at our homestyle coastal restaurant Spice Studio at Alila Diwa Goa.
The menu is replete with a variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian traditional delicacies that offer an epicurean feast of authentic and traditional coastal cuisines. A few of Chef Sooraj’s recommended dishes are Koli Saaru, Tomato Pineapple Rasam, Yeti Ghee Roast, Poliogare Cheese Pops, Pandi Kari, Beef Varutharacha, Ullitheeyal, Veg Stew with Appam, Thallassery Kozi Biryani and Coconut Panna Cotta.
To further elevate the traditional coastal experience, guests are encouraged to eat with their hands and feel as close to home as possible while dining at the restaurant.
Spice Studio is open for dinner only, from 7 pm to 11 pm.
To celebrate the deep, rich flavors and aromas of spices from the coast, our chefs have adopted traditional cooking techniques inspired by age-old preparation methods. The chefs freshly grind the masalas and pastes used in each dish instead of using store-bought readymade masalas.
A wealth of spices and special ingredients are sourced from the place of origin instead of using widely available ingredients, e.g., using local Bhetki chilies from Karnataka instead of Kashmiri chilies. The tableware and crockery have also been procured from a local potter in Karnataka to make the entire dining experience as authentic as possible.
Be it an array of accompaniments that are not found on the menu or the Pickle and Chutney Tray inspired by a marble game in Kerala called ‘Pallankuli,’ the team at Spice Studio have thoughtfully crafted every experience to immediately set you on an exciting journey to the coast.
A Restoration Project
The design of the restaurant is inspired by an old Portuguese home, which is adorned with carefully sourced vintage furniture and artefacts that complement the menu and add to the comfortable home-style experience. Built around a majestic banyan tree, the ambience of the restaurant is earthy and natural and exudes an aura of authenticity and contemporary elegance.
The drinks served at Spice Studio are inspired by the adjoining cocktail bar, Courtyard Bar, which serves hyperlocal drinks, cocktails and mocktails made with home-infused spice and herb mixers alongside the classics.
