Gastronomically, the Portuguese legacy was widespread and being responsible for bringing foods from the New World to Goa. Goa being a bustling tourist hub, it led to restaurant businesses with inception of “fusion Cuisine” trend diminishing the authentic Goan cuisine. The Saraswat Cuisine remains untouched for the non-acceptance of the products brought into Goa due to religious beliefs. The paper sets out to trace the impact of Portuguese invasion on Goan Cuisine, explore the disappearing Saraswat cuisine and also evaluate the extent of Goan cuisine as a tourist interest among international tourists. An exploratory study was carried out with qualitative and quantitative approach, in which interview technique and questionnaire was distributed to 89 international visitors at Baga – Calangute stretch. This research implies that there has been alteration according to the local palatability, to cater to the needs of the tourists and availability of ingredients thereby losing its authenticity.
