The Guiltless Foodies

We are a gourmand couple who love to discover new places and eat our hearts out. Follow us for a guilt trip along the food road.

Review: Victoria, Kopar Khairane, Navi Mumbai.

Being big foodies in nature my wife and I generally try and cover many restaurants, big or small and try various cuisines. Not all big restaurants serve the best of food and not all small ones are unhygienic and a bad choice.

On entering this mid sized restaurant we were wondering if this place has been decorated by buying random stuff. The tables and chairs were Kashmiri with intricate wood work on table top, the chairs also had some great carving. There were large pieces of colourful cloth hanging randomly and connected from one end to the other. And some very unmatched piece of decorative items.Verdict – interiors need to be worked on.

Over to the food. First of all we had to wait for a while for someone to give us water. And post that there was no looking back. We ordered the Crunchy Babycorn and Zucchini priced around 170/- , delicious and very different, the crispy Babycorns were well coated and fried.

Then we had the Veg Ching Kao @ 140/-. These were basically veg Dimsums. Good but a little chewy. Later on we ordered the Honey Glazed Lemon Chicken, which was the show stealer priced at around 200/- a perfect combination of spices, with a mild tangyness of lemon and the sweetness of honey.

For the main course we had the Thai Green Curry with steamed rice for 270. The Thai curry was just about OK. The look was not to appealing as it was dark green in colour just like some Palak curry and there was just a faint trace of coconut milk, which ideally should have been the dominating ingredient in the dish.

Overall I think one must stick to Chinese here as the restaurant is best for it

Quantity wise it was good but being a mid level casual restaurant the prices were slightly on the higher side, like that of a fine dine restaurant.

Would we visit it again – Definite yes but specifically and only for Chinese.

A sneak peak of what's in store this Summer at @antares_goa where @sarahtodd rustles up some lip-smacking grub and some refreshingly new Cocktails.
Opposites definitely attract. Enjoyed this Crisp and hot Malpua topped with creamy and cold Rabri @tajholidayvillage #goa at their Weekend Brunch. Ain't this a match made in heaven???
Objects in the mirror are much much much cuter than they appear! Repost from @keikothedachshund - Just so you know, I just got my front-seat ride with the drivers licence 🐾🐢 Woohoo πŸ‘…
Beer, Buddies & Brunch..Sounds like a perfect Sunday. Throwback to one such Jazz Music Sunday Brunch @driftersbrewingco with @khaipeenejalsa @indieopus @gastrofantasy @thefood_dude @founded_nemo @themumbaiglutton @supriyarajpurkar
We need our motivation on Tuesday rather than a Monday, reasons not just 1.What best but the creamy avocado and hummus on toast @thenutcrackermumbai #bandra .
Juss means a 'meal cooked with love' and it was precisely that when a group of us close friends met up over a vegetarian only unlimited Sindhi thali. The thali comprised of Sindhi Curry, Alu Took, Sai Bhaji,Daran ji Curry, Sanna Pakoda, Chaval, Bhuga Chaval, Bhindi Bassar, Rassewale Alu, Boondi Raita, Papad, Puri, Chapatti, Rose Sharbet and a dessert of our choice. This comforting regional thali is a brainchild of Rohit @thehungrymumbaikar & sure is a super duper hit πŸ‘
Our love for this amazing Indian dessert - The Jalebi is known pretty well in the family and @thechiranjeevlakshman made sure he shared a piece of our love through a picture with us. This is the famous Jalebi from Puruliya district in West Bengal served only in the Shal tree leaf. Dipped in the sweetest of syrup yet retaining its crunch. Shubho Nabo Barsho to everyone as well.
Our "TAMIL NEW YEAR SADHYA" at home today was Rice with Beans Poriyal, Urulai Roast, Manga Curry, Thair Pachchadi, Pal Payasam, Murungakkai Sambhar, & Vadaam. Wishing you all a very Happy Vishu & Baisakhi.
A platefull of Goodness. The Grilled Cottage Steak with fried rice, grilled vegetables and french fries was one of the best we've had @pickleandpint @tungahotels . Apart from being flavourful this meal was a great experience. Pic @shubhamkatariyaphotography
Say 'Hello to the Queen' the most delectable dessert of fried bananas, cinnamon, biscuit crumble, vanilla ice cream, and chunks of juicy strawberries.
