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.

From a Trail to a Tale at Momo Cafe, Courtyard by Marriott.

Walking up early, finishing the usual Sunday chores which is generally kept pending for that one Sunday of the week and heading out by 10.30 am to reach destination sharp at 12 , considering the traffic irrespective of the fact that it is a Sunday, is definitely something important or worthwhile. Yes this is all that we went through on one such Sunday to experience the brunch buffet and we felt it was worth every effort that we took.

As soon as we walked into the property we had this feel that we are going to have one great lazy afternoon and we indeed did. The spread laid out was extensive and a wide variety was available taking care that no one left unsatisfied. The cuisines varied from Indian, Chinese, Italian, Salads, Chats, Burmese and of course the desserts which just couldn’t be ignored.

Kokam Mocktail

We started our meal with some very refreshing Cucumber flavoured juice and sweet and tangy  Kokam mocktail. This mocktail kept us company till the end of the meal.

Since it was a buffet we took a walk around and picked up a little bit of everything.

No brunch is complete without eggs and so we started our food journey with some hot fluffy Masala Omelettes and right next to the eggs counter was the waffle. Who says desserts should be eaten only after the completion of main course? So we walked back to the table with a balanced meal, an omlette in one hand and a warm waffle loaded with honey, chocolate sauce and fresh cream. Polished off in less than a minute we were ready to walk around the spread. It would definitely take some time so we decided to walk around with food in hand. This time we settled for some salads.

Masala Omelette

There were 20+ salads at our disposal, both vegetarian and non vegetarian along with a section of make your own salad. Never take stress on a Sunday so we opted for some ready-made salads and each was better than one another. Fresh and crunchy veggies tossed in some amazing, colorful sauces or soft macaroni with some nuts and mayo, sautéed mushrooms in some olive oil or some grilled vegetables. The list was endless and the most colorful looking section on the spread.

Salad

As we walked around we spotted the good old Mumbai Chats. However big or up class the restaurant be but when there is chat one mustn’t ignore it one bit. We are glad we didn’t, and thoroughly enjoyed the Pani Puris, Ragda Pattis, Bhel puri and Dahi Puri. Spicy, drool worthy and one of the best chat counters in Mumbai City.

Khow Suey

Next counter that caught our fancy was the Burmese Khow suey. Ever smiling and perfect hosts customized our dish as per our requirement. Made sure it wasn’t too spicy yet full of flavours. The vegetables were boiled to perfection and the condiments were just perfect to please all our taste buds. Every individual on the table enjoyed the Khow suey and some went for a second round too.

Sangria

We were told that they have a very beautiful swimming pool and one must visit it. So we went ahead to visit the pool, but we being foodies can’t leave behind food. So we ordered for some Veg Pizzas to be sent to us by the pool. Sipping on some Sangrias along with crunchy and cheesy pizza was pure BLISS. Had it not been too sunny we would have stayed a bit longer, but wanted to get back to our comfort zone and continue what we do best, EAT.

Double Cheese Margherita

Our next section that we were ready to explore was the Indian section. With such high standards already set we were kind of disappointed with the Indian food. The breads were cold and rubbery, the gravies were nothing out of the world or different, the lentils lacked flavor and all in all it could well be avoided.

So to quickly recover from the bad experience we ordered the Spaghetti Aglio Olio. Perfectly cooked, not too soft nor too hard and tossed in olive oil with the perfect amount of garlic and chilli flakes. This was the star of the evening for the spaghetti lovers.

Next up we were all ready for the best part of any meal, the desserts. As we initially took a walk around the buffet we had mentally decided on what we were    going to try from the dessert section. One has to be a little insane to try out every single dish of the spread. There were almost 20 variants to choose from. We picked up the best and by best we not only mean taste but also by looks. Mocha Pastry, Serradura, Strawberry Mousse Cake, Chamcham, Coconut Strudel, Waffle, Anarkali, Blueberry pastry Kala Jamun, Peda, Pista burfi along with a section of different flavoured ice creams and toppings. One clearly had to set aside a minimum of an hour to savoure these delectable desserts.

Spaghetti Aglio Olio

Our hearts were as full as our stomach and it actually took us a while to come back to reality. The reality that the expansive brunch has come to an end and it’s time for us to head back home and get ready for a grueling Monday. As bad as it sounds but the memoirs of this brunch would keep us going till we come across something so vast and almost similar to this.

    I’m feeling that satisfied, uncomfortable feeling after eating so much amazing food and needing to sleep away the rest of the day just reading this! Can you tell me though, what is a Mumbai chat?

      Thank you. Mumbai Chaat is more like street food that you find across the city. It is a savoury delicacy loved by almost everyone. There are a lot of Chaat varieties that are adopted region wise and tweaked to ones personal taste. To put all this in a line – it’s a sweet, tangy, spicy combination of spices mixed to make that one great dish.

Pre-Paired to Perfection. ❤❤ these loaded #cocktails come with some great appetizer combinations.
We tried the 'Mango & Birds Eye Chilli Margharita' (the yellow one) which was #tequila - potent enough and mixed to a different level with bursting spikes from the Bird Eye Chilli, served with Cottage Cheese Cigar, Lotus Root Slider, Baked Noodle Packet and Srirarcha Baby Potato.
Must Try !!

-
And for us, 1000 is not just a number. Behind this number is our 2+ years of memories that we have kept alive and mouthwatering through @Instagram and other Social Media. In this journey we have come across different people, some of who have become more of a family now. We have shared ups and downs and most importantly celebrated everything together. -
Though not up to the mark, our posts/ pictures have won us appreciations and many a times, we are sure people have wondered how these clicks happen. Trust us. Though we own a DSLR camera, most of our #foodgasmic 😉 pictures are shot from the Camera on the Instagram app itself. Essentially all you need is good lighting and some focus, we mean real focus with all that food around 😉 like this picture here of the 'Prawn Bacon Rolls & Grilled Chestnuts' served at @swinggoa -
1000 would've been a distant dream without the Love and Support that you ALL have been giving us. Thank you. Each and every one of you. ❤❤
