Bomra’s Restaurant, Goa

May 2, 2011 in Favourite Places | Comments (5)


Bawmra Jap is, in my view, one of the finest and most inventive chefs in the world. He is ethnically a Kachin from northern Burma, but he left the country after his marriage to his British-Iranian wife, Mariam, and trained as a chef in London. His restaurant, Bomra’s,  in Candolim, Goa, is unpretentious and welcoming, but it consistently serves some of the best food anywhere. His style is unclassifiable: it is perhaps best described as South-East-Asian-inflected modern cuisine. Some of his great dishes are: pickled tea leaf salad, crisp-fried sardines, pomelo salad, pork belly and Kachin chicken. His warm chocolate cake is better than any I’ve had in New York, London, New Delhi – anywhere in fact.

I don’t know how he does it; I’m just glad he does.
