A quaint little hut, by the side of the Nossa Senhora da Remedios Chapel on the Ribandar junction, easy to find. Just a stone’s throw from the Panjim Divja Circle. Not much of an ambiance, Texeira’s has just four tables and chairs propped on either side of a little room. Usually, you have to wait your turn to occupy one of them.
