The Taj hotels have long been a go-to for Bangaloreans. From the oldest hotel in Bangalore (or in India), the West End to the new glitz of the Taj at the airport, there has always been one thing on which the hotel has traditionally focused - food.
The chefs of the Taj take this culture seriously and for this reason, you can see them always with a slightly dissatisfied expression - as though they know they’re good but there’s a better idea coming up.
It’s called creative restlessness (well, we call it that) and they bring this restlessness to every meal they cook. And every pastry they...er... dish.
So here’s a round-up of some of the Taj properties and what they have planned for this festive season.
At the Taj West End Bangalore, Mynt serves up a four-course traditional Christmas meal with Chandon sparkling wine at Rs 3800 plus taxes. The Christmas brunch at Mynt on 25 December features Roast Turkey, Yule Log, Christmas Pudding and unlimited liquor, starting from Rs 3000 onwards. The brunch will be accompanied by live band as well, along with a special kid’s corner.
