Goa is a melting pot of cultures where people from all walks of life come to mingle, bringing with them their own unique cultures and gastronomy. Demand for global cuisine is immense in Goa so you would notice a tremendous amount of variety up for grabs, including the very delicious Japanese cuisine. Surprisingly Goa still has to wake up to this version of Oriental cuisine, but what they lack in variety they make up for it through flavour, which brings us to ‘Yaki Zushi’.
