In the heart of the bustling lanes of Anjuna, amidst the vibrant pulse of Goa’s coastal rhythms, an ancient Portuguese bungalow stands adorned, concealing within its weathered walls a gastronomic marvel waiting to unfold. Welcome to the Tanjore Tiffin Room, a sanctuary of flavours where tradition meets innovation, curated by the visionary restaurateur Kishore DF, a maestro known for orchestrating culinary symphonies across Mumbai’s epicurean landscape. This culinary haven isn’t just a restaurant; it’s also a pilgrimage for the taste buds. It is certainly a celebration of Tamilian culinary heritage, nestled within the embrace of Goa’s effervescent spirit.

Housed within the walls of a 150-year-old Portuguese bungalow, the restaurant unfolds across 6500 square feet. It is an intimate yet expansive canvas. Within this space, a 120-seater dining area and a 50-seat bar lounge beckon patrons to savour the culinary delights. Imagine warm interiors adorned with French décor seamlessly blending with a sprawling garden. It certainly evokes the sensation of wandering into a friend’s home, artfully adapted for the contemporary urban dweller.

Flavours Of Tradition Meet Goa’s Coast

The heart of this epicurean journey lies within its menu. It is a mosaic of small plates that encapsulate the effervescent spirit of the city. It’s not merely a meal; it’s an odyssey through the cultural symphony that defines Tamil cuisine. From the Marina Beach Sundal’s vibrant blend of vatana, raw mango, coconut, and onions to the tantalising Yam Cutlet with its crispy exterior yielding a spicy interior, each dish is certainly a portal to a flavour-filled universe. 

Dive into the Mushroom Pepper Fry, where mushrooms dance in freshly ground spices, or savour the Madras Tiger Prawns, grilled to succulent perfection. The menu unfolds further, revealing treasures like the Coromandel Clams and the Chilli Rib, an ode to slow-cooked pork glazed with Chettinad chillies.

Transitioning to the mains, the journey continues with classic Tamil-style dishes like Ennai Kathrrika. It is a tangy tamarind curry embracing small brinjals, or the simplicity of poriyal, a dry vegetable medley with grated coconut. 

Delve into the Madras Railway Curry, a nostalgic Anglo-Indian concoction, or indulge in the Khorma’s creamy coconut, cashew, and ginger-garlic embrace, paired seamlessly with options like chicken, mutton, or prawns. And for rice aficionados, the menu also presents delightful options like Jackfruit Biryani, Prawn Biryani, and timeless favourites like Lemon Rice and Sambhar Rice.
