Brunch in Goa

When you are on holiday or otherwise it is pretty tough to wake up in time on the weekends. It’s even more tough to make it for a scrumptious breakfast in time so the next best thing is a Brunch. Here are my picks for a delicious Brunch in Goa.

Da Luigi in the Park Hyatt is an authentic Italian Fine Dining restaurant like no other.  It is a relaxed neighbourhood-style Italian trattoria that has some amazing food and a warm welcoming ambiance. Executive Chef Saulo Bacchilega has a keen eye for detail and his perfectionist attitude is seen in every dish that leaves the kitchen. The quality of the food is so good that Da Luigi was awarded the 100% Italian Award, a recognition for the most authentic Italian restaurant in India by The Indo-Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IICCI) in 2013. Through the show kitchen you can watch the talented chefs make you some delicious pizza, pasta and more. This month from the 2nd to the 30th you can enjoy a lovely Italian Sunday brunch so catch it before you are too late.

My personal favourite is Infantaria at the Calangute-Baga Junction, this place is very old and I have been going there ever since I can remember. Their food is full of heart and every bite is delicious, they do not have a very large or fancy brunch spread but the few items they put up are well made and over in seconds. They have a typical english breakfast spread but with a lot of Goan specials added along side. For me no visit to Goa is complete without the chocolate pancakes here! Simple yet so yummy! Be warned it’s a pretty small establishment always buzzing with activity and hence may be tough to get a table and tough to get quick service. And if you are looking for a quiet place, this is not it. If you do go later in the day try their Grilled Lobster and other Goan specials.

Infantaria Picture Courtesy- http://goo.gl/m6yucP

Last we have Waterfalls Cafe in Zuri, this is an all day restaurant with buffet and À la carte options for dining. They have a very comfortable indoor section and a bright and colourful outdoor section as well not to forget a few of the waterfall and the pool. The food here is multi cuisine so you know there is something for everyone. Be it Indian, continental or Oriental they do a very good job of the food that they serve. Their Sunday Brunches are not to be missed as they have a live band playing to keep you in joyous spirits and they also have many live counters to help you customize your food just the way you like.

Cilantro – Trident, Gurgaon

I am one of you… I have a great deal of guilt after I devour a magnificent Tiramisu or a delectable Bolognese Pizza with some chilled beer while cheering a game on the big screen in front of me! During moments of better self-control, I’m conscious of what I eat , which is code for “can’t eat in a restaurant”!

My best friend on the other hand works out religiously, yet is never able to fully enjoy a tasty, wholesome meal in a restaurant only because she knows the meal will be filled with unhealthy calories. She instead chooses to stick to salads and juices and soups! The two of us are quite contrasting in our eating habits but the point where we both agree is our dedication to being calorie-conscious! When does this stop?


Cilantro, in Trident, Gurgaon has come up with a special event for people like us! It is totally (Pardon the pun) Calorific


Carrots, Orange & Ginger Soup
P.C. – http://shewolfinthevalley.files.wordpress.com/

I’ll tell you what Cilantro is up to, this time! Imagine enjoying a full four course meal with appetizers, soups, main courses and desserts while you know exactly how healthy it is and how many calories are you eating in total!

This special meal has been designed by the highly trained Chefs at Cilantro – Trident, Gurgaon in a scientific method that is delicious, high on proteins, nutritious and best of all filling!


Raw Papaya with Chicken Salad
P.C. – http://katsandpipe.files.wordpress.com/

This is such a relief! My recent dinner meant that I didn’t feel the guilt later and my friend did not have to run on the treadmill the next day!

Just imagine the enticing tastes of

Slow roasted beets, wild rocket, Florida orange and pine nuts
