While doing research for another article, I came across Coconut Sunday Sessions at Goa-Doodle-Do Restaurant. I am so glad I did. Luckily, it just happened to be Sunday, so I convinced my husband (it wasn't hard) to take the family out for dinner.

Goa-Doodle-Do, located on Stanley Street in Woolloongabba, dishes up delicious Indo - Portuguese fusion food; unique to Goa, the smallest state in India.

Goa was a Portuguese colony for 450 years before it was taken back by India in 1961. Goan cuisine is a blend of Portuguese and Indian ingredients and spices.

Coconut Sunday Sessions are the perfect opportunity to sample classic Goan curries, prepared using family recipes which have been handed down.

What makes Coconut Sunday Sessions so special is that the curries are served in coconuts, which are ideal for sharing.

With three spice levels to choose from, we played it safe with mild and medium. We ordered the Vegetarian Caldeen, Prawn Caldeen, and Tender Goat Curry, with sides of basmati rice and mixed Portuguese breads.

The Vegetarian Caldeen, a coconut cream curry with cauliflower and sweet potato, was scrumptious. The Prawn Caldeen, king prawns in a mild creamy coconut curry, was delectable. The Tender Goat Curry, a medium spice curry with a spinach and coconut cream base, was terrifically tender. If I had to choose a favourite, it would be the Prawn Caldeen but only by a whisker.

Everything about Goa-Doodle-Do was delightful. Liam, our waiter, was wonderful, as were the very accommodating chefs. Our two youngest (and fussiest eaters) decided they didn't want to try curry coconuts, so the chefs prepared them lemon-peppered calamari with sweet potato crisps and salad. Although this item is on their kids menu, it is not usually available on Sunday.

Goa-Doodle-Do went out of their way with our children's desserts too. We ordered them ice-cream ($2); they received two scoops of vanilla ice-cream dusted with chocolate, served with berry coulis and a strawberry garnish.

Without a doubt, this was the best meal we have had since moving to Brisbane.
