Food is a vital factor in our daily life; it means the world to them food lovers. Every lane, city, state & country has a taste that cannot be better tasted elsewhere.

Goa lovers will become more attracted to the beaches, but the goa food will be after you wherever you go.

Saving a few bucks on food and that on your vacation sounds like a pretty boring idea. But for many, it will be your dream to make this happen.

Dining locally would also be the best way to save your Goa expenses daily.

I explain the points you must consider to save a few bucks on goa food.

1. Eat locally

Going to Goa for the first time, you will be fascinated with Goa’s famous food and local food.

Assume you had ordered food in Goa, a Roti & Daal. The purpose should be to try Goa food.

Got my point here?

Spend on food which you will not be getting in your town.

You should try Goa local food like fish curry from a local restaurant. The cost of thalli would be as low as Rs.100-120 per person.

The two things will be going to happen here –

  • You will get to try the local food.
  • You will be going to save a few bucks (which is also the primary motive of this article)

2. Eat-in Big Restaurant Once in a While

Once in a while, meant here is once a day or maybe twice. If you’re planning to stay for a month-long stay, then eating along the beachside and in a big restaurant should be less. It can be done once in 2-3 days apart you have to eat Goa food from the local eateries.

By the way, I had an article on how to spend one month in Goa for under 11k; You can check out if you are preparing for a vacation on a budget.

That is not any forceful request but just a humble opinion if you want to save money on Goa Food.

3. Try to Dine in Between

Let’s assume that you are bored eating in the local establishment the same thing repeatedly. You would also like to save on food on the other hand.

Now what to do regarding Mr. Stomach?

Tell Mr. Stomach that they can eat between the hours of daily routine.

For example – If you are looking to try a big restaurant and your primary motive is to save money, try eating between breakfast and lunch or lunch and evening or evening and dinner.

Let us assume you would like to skip breakfast but have lunch before your time. So now, you have both the food, breakfast & lunch to be consumed for once.

I know you would say you will get more hungry than your routine. You have to adjust to save money in Goa. It works hand in hand.

4. Buy Raw from the Market

You can buy raw fruits and vegetables from the Market and properly cook them where you are staying.

It would be difficult if you are sojourning in a hotel, but hostels would allow you to cook something on your own, but you will need to cook with your purchased raw food.

Even some hostels have a kitchen only to make the self-food for themselves.

It will save a lot of money, and for this, you need only one thing – You must know how to cook something, that’s the only deal.

5. Don’t Count Drinks Invoice Individually

Yes, we all know Goa is famous for Drinks, Beaches, and Partying. So drinks, right? Let’s get deep into glasses, not in another manner but for understanding purposes.


Have you ever noticed that the food is incomplete without the drinks on vacation?

Many people count it as included in the food. But unfortunately, that is also the main reason people get overbudgeted when it comes to food.

Take your food bill on one side and drinks bill on another; in most cases, the food bill will almost be the same.

The conclusion is to try not to order drinks as complimentary if you want your Goa food bill under control.


The result concludes that you can spend as many days as you want but for food lovers.

I have explained my golden tips above.

I hope that this guide will be going to help you.
