Recognised as India’s premier luxury cinema exhibitor, PVR INOX Director’s Cut brings in top notch hospitality services along with entertainment. Its aim to offer bespoke cinema experiences to cinephiles is not just restricted to plush cinema halls, advanced screen technology, exceptional sound systems and exquisite art works that adorn the walls; but to offer a food menu that adds exquisite gustatory pleasure to the ocular and aural rapture of a cinematic experience.
With focus on regional Indian cuisine and the addition of international cuisine, a fresh food menu was launched recently at the Director’s Cut, Vasant Kunj. The menu, artfully crafted by renowned Chefs Mayank Tiwari, Chef Aditte and Shiva Arora, showcases a captivating fusion of Mid-Eastern, Japanese and Rajasthani culinary traditions.
Chef Mayank Tiwari, Group Executive Chef at The Luxury Collection, PVR INOX Ltd., talked about the new menu at the launch, “The emphasis has been on cuisine revival with Rajasthani food, and the inclusion of International cuisines from the Japanese and Arabic kitchens. Another refreshing change is the replacement of soy with plant based dishes. At the cinemas where people are looking at options and alternatives to non-vegetarian food, an early introduction will go a long way.”
Middle Eastern Delights take centre stage on the menu, offering an array of dishes influenced by the flavours of Armenia, Iran, and Morocco. From Al Faham to Armenian Losh Kebab Burger, each dish narrates a tale of centuries-old culinary expertise. The Moroccan Chermoula Salmon is a standout, encapsulating the essence of these traditions. The tanginess from citrus, the texture from fresh parsley, cilantro, garlic, and a generous pour of olive oil is what gives Chermoula highly complex flavours. A layer of it adds punch to the flakiness of the salmon. Served with couscous and pomegranate tabouleh, the dish is an absolute flavour bomb. Highly recommended!
The menu is graced by the grandeur of Rajasthani cuisine and inspired by Chef Aditte’s childhood memories with her grandmother in the Pink City. It is characterized by bold flavours, intricate spices, and traditional recipes. From Dal Baati Churma to Bajra Khichdi, and from Dal Ki Kachori to Murg ke Sooley and Junglee Murgh with Papad Parantha, these dishes epitomize the very heart of Rajasthani culinary heritage. Filmophiles and food aficionados alike are treated to a regal gustatory experience, enhancing their cinematic journey.
PVR Director’s Cut proudly unveils this new menu, ensuring that patrons experience an extraordinary blend of Middle Eastern and Rajasthani flavors. Whether it’s a pre-movie indulgence or a post-screening culinary treat, the captivating tastes and impeccable service at PVR Director’s Cut promise to redefine the cinema experience.
