Lucknow: A hotel in Lucknow has come up with a vegetarian menu as per the likeness of Uttar Pradesh's new Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
The luxury hotel in the city of nawabs, however, continues to serve Mughlai fare.
Built in splendid nawabi colonial style architecture with majestic oriental stone, pillars and intricately carved stonework, the management of the SSJ International Hotel, "inspired by the Yogi" and awe-struck by his simple living and hard work, has unveiled an innovative and diverse menu -- much of it in saffron and orange, the colours worn by the monk-Chief Minister.
Talking to news agency IANS, Surendra Kumar Jaiswal, the founder of the hotel, said that some of the signature dishes on the new menu include paneer tikka, tandoori aloo, tandoori Momos, pineapple tarts, tomato soup, tandoori achari chaap and tandoori stuffed malai chaap, among others.
The "new menu reflects the combination of different flavours, yet these bear the hallmark of simplicity just like the Chief Minister," he added, expressing confidence that all the dishes on offer would be "a unique culinary experience for our guests and these will be well received by the food connoisseurs coming to dine here".
And so, as the guests coming to the hotel in Charbagh are enjoying the new menu, only time will tell how far would the list of faithful go in the coming times.
