PASHAN GARH, PANNA NATIONAL PARK

DINING EXPERIENCES

The cuisine served at Taj Safaris is every bit an exploration as the jungle safaris are; albeit of tastes. Each meal is freshly prepared, with organic home grown. Meal timings are flexible and no venue needs to be adhered to. Private butlers serve you in the privacy of your room deck, by the pool side or a table for two under the shade of a tree. Influenced by local cooking styles, each dish is a gourmet’s delight. Nuances of the royal flavours of Bundelkhandi cuisine can be found in the delicacies served to guests at Pashan Garh. The varied and gorgeous dining venues at the lodge are as delightful as the menus.

In view of the recent judgement by The Supreme Court of India directing the Centre and State Governments to ban sale of liquor along national and state highways, alcohol will not be served at any of the restaurants or outlets at the hotel.

Bonnet Breakfast

A sumptuous breakfast is laid out on the safari vehicle bonnet deep in the jungle. Freshly baked muffins and cookies along with sandwiches, fresh fruit and hot kathi rolls are washed down with freshly plunged coffee and a selection of teas. A perfect refuelling for the rest of the morning safari.

Palanquin Dinner

Pashan Garh's signature palanquin dinner features a sampling menu served to guests seated in cosy palanquins (ox wagons). The 12 artistic wagons are stationed in an open woodland area within the property. The meal begins with a selection of snacks such as lamb and chicken kebabs as well as assorted grilled vegetables. The gastronomic journey continues with a range of traditional dishes cooked in earthen pots on a ‘Chulha’ (mud stove). The luxurious wagons, scores of flickering lanterns and live cooking with efficient butler service is reminiscent of a royal caravan halting for the night.
