Fabulous Goan Flavours

A self-taught chef who jokes that all she could remember during her school years was what the nuns were cooking in the school kitchen next to her classroom! No stranger to our shores, this pretty renowned chef and TV host, Sapna Anand, is out to introduce Goan cuisine to our fellow foodies with the Soul Society Group.

Goan cuisine is still fairly vague in our culinary industry but Sapna is taking matters into her own hands to tempt our palates on the flavours of the cuisine.

It was simply meant to be when Sapna met with successful owners of Soul Society Group’s Fred Choo and Michele Kwok. The result was Goa by Sapna Anand where a one-off project led to now a sumptuous list of more than 20 Goan dishes and more coming in the menu at this restaurant. Located at The Ascott in Kuala Lumpur, Goa by Sapna Anand shares the same location as Tujo but occupies the top level at the eatery.

Both ladies were present at the recent event to introduce Goa by Sapna Anand along with Sapna’s cookbook New Indian Kitchen signing session one evening. The top level of the restaurant was the perfect ambiance for enthusiast diners to enjoy a leisure dining experience coupled with live music all set in a warm and cozy ambiance.

Her Excellency Gunn Jorid Roset, the Norwegian Ambassador to Malaysia was present to launch the campaign together with AEON management as well as with CVS and HealthifyMe App team.

“From our annual Seafood Consumer Insights, we know that Norway is the preferred country of origin for Malaysians when it comes to purchasing Fjord Trout, Our survey showed that Malaysians are known to choose Norwegian Fjord Trout for its health and nutritional benefits,” said Asbjorn Warvik Rortveit, Norwegian Seafood Council’s Regional Director, South-East Asia. Norwegian Fjord Trout is gradually gaining popularity in Malaysia for its fine quality the fish has to offer. The evident is in the export volumn of fresh Norwegian Fjord Trout that has been increasing from 77 tonnes in 2010 to 1670 tonnes in 2018.

Norwegian Fjord Trout, ocean-farmed in the pristine cold waters in the natural fjords of Norway, has such a unique oceanic clean flavour that can rival the ones of the favorite salmon. In fact, when savored as sashimi, the Norwegian Fjord Trout has such a luscious note along with the melt-in-the-mouth creaminess of the fish due to its beautiful marbling and deep red flesh.
