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.

Our weekend Brunch at White Violet.


We love quoting ourselves at every possible situation. A few blog posts earlier we had written “One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating. We all love food, all types of food, and living in a multicultural society we get to taste different types of cuisine that are pleasurable, fulfilling, and at times rewarding too.”


Talking about different types of cuisine, our choices are slightly inclined towards a set buffet as compared to à la carte. In a buffet you get a variety of options in terms of cuisines too. And if it’s a Weekend Brunch, we are always game. So, if Brunchs’ calling on Saturday or Sunday the White Violet restaurant at Majestic Sarovar Portico is indeed a blessing. A buffet spread to fulfill the needs and greed’s of everyone.


We visited this place on a Saturday, and here is a low down on our experience.

Food – Life is so much easier when each of us can pick and choose as per ones preference. A buffet is a blessing in disguise to people who love to eat all one can with no prohibitions. The buffet at White Violet was the usual fare of soup and starters served on the table followed by main course and dessert. Our favorites from the buffet were –
Mulligatawny Soup – Smooth and creamy lentil cooked with very mild spices and some boiled rice was the perfect partner to the rains. The dash of lime made all the difference to this flavorful soup.


Tom Yam Chicken Soup – A delight to every non vegetarian. Perfectly spiced with the right amount of tang. Our personal favorite.


Among the starters one of the 2 veg starter was the Veg Kurkure which deserved a mention. Crispy vegetable pops or nuggets deep fried to perfection and served with a fresh Coriander and mint dip.


The non vegetarians did enjoy quiet a few starters of which the best and favorite among all was Threaded Chicken. Juicy strips of chicken coated with noodle and deep fried. The tenderness of the chicken remained intact despite it being deep fried. A must have for sure.

The vegetarian mains were nothing important to talk about as were the non vegetarian affair. The food was rather cold and lacked in taste due to it.


The desserts definitely made up to everything. Great variety and paying equal attention to the ones who are pure vegetarians and don’t even consume eggs. A big cheers on taking the initiative. Our pick from the dessert section being the Baked Yogurt and the Blueberry Cheese cake which needs special mention.


Ambience – Eating in natural light is a pleasure on its own. When we sit to dine with people on the same table it is very important to be able to see the person as well as see what comes to our plate. White Violet has done full justice to it. The buffet also has been set  such a way keeping in mind ease of access. A very corporate looking business style hotel.


Hospitality –  At a buffet the service is not about helping on the table but to keep the buffet in perfect shape. This really required some extra effort to be put in. The starters in the table were piping hot bit the mains lost out on that. Even the refilling wasn’t prompt. But of course the staff took great care of us being available to answer every queries of ours.


Locality – New Bombay is fast growing and there is wide range of transportation easily available at any given time. White Violet is no exception and is amidst the bustling offices of Mahape area.

Affordability- Eat all you can and an affordable price is what this restaurant screams of. A no fancy no fuss restaurant which has a wide range of cuisine at just about 600 ++ person.

Whether you want to grab a quick bite or you want to have a lavish lunch at the most affordable rates White Violet is the selected one.

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 👅
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 👍
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.
