The beautiful Morjim beach is known to have a few great restaurants along the beach front. & one of the latest more hip places happens to be called ‘Trip’. A rustic but modern feel of the restaurant that gives you the feel of both serenity & peace. What surprised me was the menu had Sushi!! With a brilliant view of the beach, one could spend hours sipping on some exotic cocktails and enjoying delicious food.
