If you are feeling peckish and find yourself around the neighbourhood of Saligao, then here’s a pocket-friendly recommendation for a Goan twist to burgers and cutlets.
Atala’s food truck, parked right opposite the church lane is a family-run food truck named after the lady who is behind the tasty fish cutlets, beef chilli fry and various other delights served here, Atala Conseicao DeCosta. She also takes orders for get-togethers and parties.
Along with her husband Felix Agnello and son Alson, Atala started the food truck in January 2020 but was immediately affected by the pandemic and lockdowns. Despite the hurdles, her quick smile and the delicious menu have helped in bringing many customers flocking to her place once it reopened.
Hygienically prepared and extremely light on your pocket, you can opt for their burgers like Chicken and Fish cutlets or Chicken Liver Fry at Rs 50 or Beef Steak cutlets priced at Rs 70.
The Chicken Chilly Fry, as well as the Prawn, Beef and Squid Chilly Fry, are yummy treats priced at just Rs 50. each, while their Spicy Green Chicken and Crispy Chicken specialities are priced at Rs 70.
The Beef Tongue Roast priced at Rs 70 is another speciality of theirs that is a must-try.
These items also come without the buns if you want a lighter version.
The milk tea here with a hint of rose flavour is also worth a mention.
Atala’s Food Truck, Saligao can be found opposite the lane of Mae De Deus Church every evening between 5.00 pm and 9.30 pm.
