When we left Candolim at the end of November, a new supermarket was ready to open, across the road from Bruno's, has anyone tried it yet.If so what's it like.
Just booked to come back to Candolim for two weeks, we land on the 20.03.12.
Thanks for the reply, very funny, but then again that's India.We are coming back for two weeks on the 20.03.12, we really need the sun on our backs.Looking at flights for November, Hoping that Qatar will put a good flight price on, this time we are coming on a package to the highland beach with Thomson as it works out cheaper than the flight & accommodation as we got a late booking, we only decided to come,as we were snow bound in at home last Saturday.
The cooked meat selection was vast...all of 5 choices but all looked ok...sorry didnt try any
The tomatoe focaccia bread was lovely as appeared to be all the other home made breads... but for all you persons who like tiramassiu ...not sure on spelling but you know the one....dont bother getting the cake it was ****** awful.
We will use again as its so convienient
the lady blatantly followed me and it was so obvious she thought I was shoplifting
I wonder why they do this.
At first I thought that they were merely waiting to assist, but several times when I have asked where things are they were unable to help find them. So it is obvious that they are there for shoplifting and not customer service, but why? Do the British indulge in mass shoplifting there? or, indeed do the Russians?
Or is it the locals (who don't seem to use Newtons a lot) that have caused this?
Being a big ugly bloke I am not that bothered if they want to follow me around the shop but I can understand that some would feel uncomfortable in these circumsatances.
Strange that although WE appear not to be trustworthy, we are expected to leave our belongings outside the shop and trust their security to look after them.
Strange also, is the apparent lack of trust there, when any other shop appear to be happy to say "pay us tomorrow".
One thing I did notice about Delfinos was the difficulty in finding a price on the goods.Our eyes even with Glasses are not as good as they used to be, but finding the price on some of the items was impossible , so we gave up.Apart from this, we pooped in quite a few time in March & found the staff friendly & not following you around like a guard dog, as they do in Newtons.We do always use the smaller shops for odds & sodds, as we feel its right to keep them going, they are part of the experience of shopping in Goa & over the years we have come to know them well.But we do like the air conditioning in delfinos & it is a welcome relief from the heat sometimes.
Delfinos is ok with a similar lay out to Newtons, thought the cold meat counter looked fine for long stayers, maybe they can give us a true reflection on products purchased ?
Had a browse in the small juice bar next to Delfinos) is it a juice bar ? Seemed popular with Indians.
