VEG OK PLEASE: A Definitive Guide for Veg Only Villas Near Mumbai and Pune

If one were to define the relationship between Indians and vegetarianism, it would be safe to say, “it’s complicated”. Don’t believe us? Well, we’ll let the meme below do the talking:

With so many sub-categories, it becomes important for anyone even remotely associated with the F&B industry to cater to these diverse palates. This is because while we are experimental, we also want to play it safe. Therefore, carrying thepla and instant noodles on international trips, or seeking recommendations for restaurants that serve vegetarian fare in Japan is not uncommon. Being a vegetarian myself, this is what I’m always looking at while travelling. When it comes to food, comfort is the keyword. Keeping the needs of several vegetarians like me (No. 4 from the list above) in mind, SaffronStays has several fully staffed and serviced veg only villas. Let’s take a look at some veg only villas near Mumbai and Pune.
