On The Eve Of Independence Day, The Taj Mahal Palace Will Recreate Its Menu From 1947

Jayati posted on 12th August

What Is It?

This August 15, India will complete 70 years of Independence. And to commemorate this, The Taj Mahal Palace in Colaba will recreate its menu from the year 1947, and will offer it on the eve of Independence Day {August 14, 2017}. Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?

Who Is It For?

For anyone, who holds the bittersweet memory of Independence. The iconic and majestic, The Taj Mahal Palace holds a special place in the history of Indian Independence, with Lord Mountbatten giving his very last speech at the steps of the hotel on the eve of August 15, 1947.

As an ode to the historic moment that changed the face of South Asia, Sea Lounge at Taj will recreate its entire menu, and date it to 1947. Go here if you want to reflect on this sweet moment. The prices from 1947 won’t hurt either.

Why Should I Go?

It is not news to anyone that the Taj palace is a five-star luxurious hotel situated in the heart of Colaba with its rather envious location opposite to the Gateaway of India. The fact that for one evening, the menu will feature prices of their dishes from 1947 is equal parts astounding, and amazing.

The menu will also look the same, the one that was served in 1947 – the same dishes, and prices. As for us millennials, nothing like nostalgia and budget wrapped in the form of dinner at a luxurious hotel.

Anything Else?

Prior reservations are a must, and a strict dress needs to be adhered to. So ladies, get out your fanciest dress {a flowing gown perhaps?}, and the men out there, the suit that never saw the light of the day, and head to the Taj.
