Slow Tide
by Tejashee Kashyap

Anjuna happens to be a historic town in Goa which was famous for the hippie culture. And beach shacks were how they lived in communes and spent their days dancing away while celebrating life’s simple pleasures and their rustic lifestyle. With that idea, there’s a new-age beach shack in Anjuna, Slow Tide.

Inside Slow Tide

Slow Tide’s seamless blending with Anjuna Beach’s natural surroundings is instantly apparent. With the use of organic materials like laterite and bamboo, Slow Tide manipulates the elements to create a shaded sanctuary with a play of light and shadows, it is no different from sitting beneath a coconut tree on the beach.

There are several places to sit across the two floors. It has a main room with high tables and chairs adjacent to the bar. There is a stairway that leads down to a more secluded space with an infusion bar. It also has a large table that invites guests to sit around and converse with one another. On the second level, there are low-seated eating rooms for larger families.

What’s On The Menu?

Along with items from the ‘haute’ hippie kitchen, the menu has coastal delicacies with a missionary influence, including Goan favourites like shack food and dishes from East India, Mangalorean, and Colombo.

The notable dishes include Moringa fritters, Kevaji Voir Pondha–a dish of Kevaji or red snapper steamed in banana leaf, Prawn Balchao, Thaleepeeth Tacos and more. The food menu is never-ending and experimental. You can even find some delicious vegan plates. Traditional shack smoothies, plant-based and nutrient-dense with homemade blends are given special attention.

The bars are a modern ode to the alcohol culture of Goa—with cocktails named after prominent people associated with the state’s beverage realm or after the drinking traditions.
