Sandeep Ros Omelette stall, Panjim
Next on our list of the top street food joints in Goa is the Sandeep Ros Omelette stall in Panaji. It is located near the Panjim Municipal market. It is one of the few places in Panjim where you can enjoy some amazing ros omelettes.
Earlier, when it was located at the Panjim Square in Altinho, it used to attract hordes of customers. Then, when the Corporation of the City of Panaji started clamping down on food carts in the city centre, the stall had to shift to its current location near Panjim Market.
After shifting to the new location, business dropped significantly. However, things have gradually improved and the stall is doing quite well now. It has now been upgraded from a cart to a small shop. They have a small sitting area with two tables at the shop. The egg for the ros omelette is fried as per your desired preference and topped up with gravy and a few pieces of chicken xacuti and pao. Apart from ros omelette, the stall also serves other items like chicken fried rice, egg fried rice, boiled eggs and cold drinks.
