Panjim goes American Via Route 66 by Chef & Restaurateur Xavs Norr, his quest to find a location for the American Diner, came to reality after finding the perfect spot in Goa’s capital city Panjim. The restaurant has been operational for 3 and a half years.
Opened first in 2014 at Panjim and then got relocated in the month of Nov 2017, just next door to the previous restaurant, on the ground floor, in this beau Portuguesa Blue bldg. The restaurant has been designed & executed by the Chef.
Nestled in the charming Latin neighbourhood of Fontainhas. Route 66 “Smoke House N Grill” is inspired by the famed American highway (it’s a legendary road, as evident by the hit song ‘Get Your Kicks on Route 66’. The menu is crafted to ensure an “All-American Diner” experience offering a myriad range of the American Classics.
This ain’t just any American Diner Fix, it’s the real McCoy! Not just any Burgers, Steaks or Hotdogs these are mouth-watering flavour bombs, meaty creations stacked high with Bacon and sausages and patties and cheese and spicy Mexican peppers & topped with crisp bacon, grilled hot dog, chipotle chillies, adobo sauce and jalapenos.
Prepared in full view on a Live open BBQ Pit, Grills Blazin’ & Flaring in the kitchen (Why the terms “Wolverine” ‘S.O.B.’ and ‘Hell sauce?’ Not sure, but it must have something to do with the ‘bad-ass’ portions and taste!)
Other noteworthy offerings at Route 66 include a nice selection of Pastas (Spaghetti Meatballs & Lasagna), Salads (American Cobb Salad, Taco fresco chopped salad), a whole range of Stone-Fired Pizzas and some exceptional entrée including BBQ Smoked Pork Ribs, Flambé of Filet Mignon and Salmon Grilled on a Cedar Plank. And for Dessert, there’s Mud Cake (with Vanilla ice cream), Waffles, New York Cheese Cake an Americana Sundae.
A wide selection for Vegetarians dedicated in the Green pages.
