“It is not by chance but by choice that we came here””If tongue could write, it would be a never ending thank you from the all the taste buds of every one who’s eaten at Chef Fernando’s nostalgia”,
Fernando Aluiso Ribeiro Da Costa
Passionate. Compassionate. GOAN – home of Stubborn – Grit and Laughter – is what comes to mind when one reflect of “ferdie’, ‘nandinho’ ‘Conti’“chef-ito” ‘Nostalgia-Ferdy’as he was fondly called. Fernando Aluiso Ribeiro Da Costa was probably the last vestige of ‘authentic Goan Cuisine”.
Traditionally-Contra beneath his chefs’ hat-Chef stood resolute in self belief; belief in Goa and a deep abiding love for all things Goan. This credo saw him devote his intellectual gifts, and his extraordinary capacity for hard work to the cause of Goan Cuisine. . It is this credence- Chef Fernando’s Nostalgia’ the restaurant showcases. Enormously gifted, multi-faceted personality- who could have triumphed at so much! But it was authentic Goan cuisine that this ‘Home-grown’ boy cooked with finesse and served with love.
