Route 66 – Smoke house & Grill Culinary Culture: They serve locally sourced ingredients. Doing this helps support local farms and businesses while providing customers with the best quality and value. Beer is their  next priority to work with local breweries and their  wine lists feature wines made in India. they  aim to be part of the Slow Food movement, embracing the philosophy wherever possible, to counter the unhealthy trend of fast food, the disappearance of local food traditions, and a dwindling interest in what they eat. It’s about learning where food comes from, how it’s supposed to taste, and how their  choices affect the world. The majority of their ingredients are purchased locally, and if it’s not possible to source products locally, they seek suppliers who have fair trade or sustainable business ethics. we humbly welcome you to the launch & relocation of Route 66-Goa.
