The bars are a modern ode to the alcohol culture of Goa—with cocktails named after prominent people associated with the state’s beverage realm or after the drinking traditions. One is bound to get ‘Sailor Fred’ and ‘Acid Erik’ accompanied with the anecdotes the names have to them. There is also food from the ‘haute’ hippie kitchen, which is different from home-style cooking. As for the culinary variety offered at Slow Ride, the menu features missionary influenced treats of a very local taste, from East Indian to Mangalore to Colombo. Traditional shack smoothies, plant-based and nutrient-dense with homemade blends are given special attention. Slow Tide features hormone-balancing ones following the philosophy of Anthony William, known as the Medical Medium.
