Ariston E Severes’s Life in Goa

Ariston E Severes (Assistant MD, Johncy Restaurant & Bar) gives us a peek into what living in Goa is all about:

I have been living in Goa since … 

My first breath, that’s 24 years of my life.

In Goa, I do (for a living)

Asst. Managing Director of a standalone restaurant by the Benaulim beach, South Goa.

My best memory of life in Goa … 

Being a Goan, everyday seems to be turning into a remarkable memory in this heart-warming place.

The best part about living in Goa … 

is that one can spring up the mornings with the serene beauty of nature and essence of love the Goan people offer.

Thing I love most about Goa … 

is that it is an eminent blend of the east and the west- extending from then authentic cuisine, the cultural and linguistic diversity, and so much more

Life in Goa in one word can be called … 

“Susegad” – laid back, Relaxed and Chilled out.

On weekends I … 

make hay when the sun sets. I’m usually driven by work and management on the weekends, though I squeeze in time to socialize with friends and family as well.

Events I look forward to most in Goa…

 Sao Joao, Carnival, Shigmo, The food and cultural Festival, EDM events like Sunburn and Supersonic.

My ‘go to’ restaurant for a hearty meal … 

Ritz Classic – for an authentic and sumptuous Goan fish thali

A local snack I am addicted to … 

Chouris (Goan sausage) Pav and Cutlet Pav

My favourite season in Goa ….

The Moonsons… If there was one thing I could change about Goa, it would be … an improved and designed focus on highend tourism since Goa and its people thrive on it.

If I weren’t in Goa, I would be in …

Goa is where my heart lies… I can’t think of a better place to live my life. Once in a while, would love to indulge in the dynamic Indian cities like Mumbai or Bangalore and explore quality of life in Sydney, Switzerland and UK.
