Qmin Shop boasts of a café and gourmet store coming together to offer customers the best of both worlds
What began as IHCL’s culinary food delivery platform – Qmin app, has now metamorphosed into a lifestyle gourmet store – Qmin Shop, in its physical avatar. With its vibrant and aesthetic décor elements – pops of colour and statement lighting, spacious interiors exuding a cosy and trendy vibe, Qmin Shop, the newly opened gourmet shop at Vivanta Goa, Panaji is located in the heart of the capital city, providing the perfect setting for an ideal hangout destination and the prefect space to satiate your gourmet needs.
Part gourmet store, part café, one can have the best of both worlds here. Relish a sandwich or a pastry and coffee, and then meander to the various gourmet offerings, attractively and neatly displayed on wooden shelves, dotting the periphery of the expansive store. From sourcing the finest gourmet products, to creating a bespoke luxury gift hamper filled with an array of artisan produce and indulging in savoury treats like puffs and samosas or decadent desserts including pastries and tea cakes, Qmin Shop showcases a plethora of flavours with uncompromised quality and premium grade ingredients. The emphasis on the finest produce, quality sourced, is hard-to-miss.
Moreover, if one wishes to take a break from cooking and yet savour a treat to the taste buds, the Qmin Shop offers a variety of ‘Heat the Treats’ options from the ‘Ready to Go’ section, that can be carried back to enjoy at leisure within the comforts of home. Chicken Xacuti, Dal Makhni, Prawn Balchao, Pork Sorpotel, Mutton Biryani and much more to choose from and something for every palate. The eco-friendly packaging, using bio-degradable material and customised insulation boxes ensure that the dishes retain their flavours, texture, and taste.
Offering an assortment of freshly baked breads and viennoiserie, choose from Baguettes, Goan Balchao Buns, Pain au Chocolate, Almond Croissant and more. Vibrant interiors, comfortable seating, and delicious baked goods paired with an array of coffee selections together forms the perfect blend to a relaxed soiree. The store also has an outdoor seating option for those who prefer an alfresco setting.
In an effort to promote small-scale artisans in Goa, Qmin Shop brings a variety of fresh produce and home-made delights prepared by the local women.
