If you are looking to indulge in some great food along with breathtakingly beautiful views, Taapu is your place to be.
Taapu is almost like a hidden patch of beach that isn’t very easily visible or accessible. You have to trek on narrow paths and uneven dirt tracks to reach there. Despite the trek, the views on the way are something you would stop by to click and once you reach Taapu, it will be all so worth your while.
Now let me tell you the most unbelievable part, this hidden, serene and tranquil place is in Baga. Can you imagine such a quiet place in the ever hustling-bustling Baga, but yes, Taapu is like an oasis in the desert, a calm in the chaos that you would love to experience.
The ambience of Taapu is just like a typical beach shack, but the views are more mesmerising than that of a regular beach shack.
Since it’s not a full-fledged beach, but just a patch of it, the access to the beach, uninterrupted views and privacy is unmatched.
Coming to food, the menu has a selection of Indian as well as global cuisine and more like there is something for everyone. The items that I tried include:
- Corn and Cheese Balls- These were the regular cheese balls that you get anywhere nothing special though they tasted good so I would rate it 4/5
- Chicken pasta in pink sauce- Chicken pasta in pink sauce was something that you must try whenever you visit Taapu. The sauce was literally amazing and out of the world, it was one of my favourite dishes there and I would give it a solid 5 out of 5.
- Cumin Chicken Skewers- Absolutely loved it, the chicken was so tender that it was leaving the stick it had a perfect balance of flavours, definitely a must-try and a 5/5
- Butter Garlic Prawns- Butter garlic prawns were cooked to perfection and bursting with flavour, yet another must-try dish.
Although a bit high on price, a visit to Taapu should surely be on your list. The view, the ambience, the food, drinks and service make up for that little hole in your pocket.
