Cafe Goa Claim

Goan Cuisine might sound complicated but it’s not, it’s quite simply, Portuguese Food with an Indian flavor.

The Portuguese navigator Vasco da Gama was the first to travel by sea to India to open up the lucrative spice route which was dominated by the Turks.

Sailing from Lisbon on 8 July 1497 in his four specially built vessels, he rounded the Cape of Good Hope four months later. On the May 20th, 1498 he reached Calicut- then the most important trading center in Southern India-well prepared to tap the fabulous riches of India.

His expedition opened up India to European enterprises for trade-in various spices such as pepper and cinnamon along with an abundance of precious metals.

Over time, the Portuguese expanded its empire in the region and Goa became its capital, thus playing a very important role in Portuguese reign in India.
