Food Plan

The joy of food is so much more intensified with the fully equipped kitchen onboard Taurus, bringing alfresco dining at its best mainly with  freshly sourced produce and ingredients from the local markets, as well as canned food when facing constraints of time and circumstances. We have designed our menu to be as healthy as possible and appeal to your Indian tastes.

We do our best to enhance your outdoor experience, we understand that food plays a great role!  But one must consider that these are `outdoor’ meals cooked in a special outdoor kitchen (not in a static kitchen of a static camp or a resort). We carry good quality and branded food items. But still food can’t be compared to a restaurant kitchen in terms of elaborate menu, though its far far better than what you get on excursions. We bet to be the most hygienic kitchen for outdoors!

Mostly we use the best available Desi Ghee (Butter Oil) for paranthas  etc., a rare thing in tourism industry. We offer fixed veg menu though flexible for a group meal, served as buffet. On normal days we offer the following food plan common for all:

  1. Breakfast:
    One veg item (Poha/ Upma/ Parantha/ Puri with veg), one egg preparation, tea/coffee.
  2. Lunch:
    Whenever Taurus is in static camping then veg lunch is offered from its kitchen. If on the move then lunch is from a third party establishment (dhaba or restaurant/hotel),  payable by the individuals directly in cash.
  3. Dinner:
    Veg soup (on some days), one vegetable/ one Daal, rice (optional), chapatti. We try to minimize the wastage of food therefore may cook what may be needed, if guests are happy with one item then we do that.
  4. Tea – a ritual  aboard Taurus: An infusion of earth, water, fire, air and space. There is harmony after all in India and it simply comes as a cup of hot tea. Its fragrance, taste, colour, feel and sound within your clasp. With tea, India gently entices you into another day teeming with its culture.

Please Note: 

  1. We choose the best ingredients for the kitchen very carefully and the best possible available to us in the market. We don’t bring anything onboard without tasting and trials.
  2. Our endeavor is to use fresh veggies for the meals, however when there is paucity of time because of any circumstances then we use the best tinned veggies also. We also carry readymade food like Maggie Noodles for extreme emergency like situation.

Anything consumed extra than the group meal, will be charged as extra bill.

Morning Tea:  Onboard Taurus, morning teatime is chance to celebrate tranquility in the lap of nature. The total setting in locales away from touristy crowds makes it a ‘tea ritual’  aboard Taurus that will remain etched on your memory long after the journey is over. We set stage to ensure your soul dances while admiring the crimson sunrise through the swirl of steam arising from your morning cup of tea. The warmth of a hot mug of tea at dawn in the lap of nature sets the tone for the day. We celebrate your tryst with tea in a special way with the subtle flavours that complement your surroundings. This is designed to arouse your curiosity and connect with nature. We offer you an array of flavours that blend into the colours of the morning to make you feel one with your natural surroundings. It all starts with the melody of the kettle whistle and the fresh aroma of the best teas to get you going. Our quaint little tea ritual helps you to appreciate the sounds of silence while nature awakens with the morning sun .We take pride that even 5 Stars can’t emulate us in the field for this morning tea ritual !

Evening Tea
We do our best to ensure you get an evening tea break everyday. Its with biscuits and cookies, if time and circumstances permit on some days we do cook hot snacks too, a delight in the middle of nowhere. Only if it’s mentioned in your itinerary.

We have world’s best Weber Barbeque  Grills which we deploy on some occasions especially when Taurus is static for two nights at least. Its offered at extra cost, without any refund or adjustment in the tariff paid. 

Extra Bill from the Kitchen 

We cater for your basic needs and you won’t need anything more on your holiday, however in case you need then these are extra from the kitchen:

  1. Tea: you will get morning and evening tea, anything more will be charged as extra.
  2. Any special dietary requirements.
  3. Beverages of all kinds
  4. Hot snacks
  5. Barbecue is always extra. It’s an expensive set up and procurement of ingredients needs preparation and effort.

These extras can be provided only if there is time and it’s not hampering the routine of the camp. Please remember, we are a different and special outfit than static establishments (restaurant, resort, hotel – where there is ample staff and space).

  1. The happiness, pleasure and comfort of our guests onboard Taurus is of paramount to us and we understand that for some non-veg food is a must in everyday diet. At the same time, considering it’s tricky to procure healthy meat on the move away from regular reliable sources in remote and rural settings, we are constrained to offer you vegetarian food onboard Taurus.
  2. We don’t advocate vegetarianism, neither its to save money and effort.
  3. Also, its a challenge to cater like a restaurant for veg and non-veg food from a kitchen of a mobile camping unit where there is paucity of time, manpower and space. Though we serve eggs almost everyday, easy to manage.
  4. Being a small kitchen its extremely difficult to manage two menus (veg and non-veg) as vegetarian guests in the group won’t be comfortable and some may refuse to eat.
  5. We do give ample opportunity to our guests to exercise their own choice for non-veg at some places on their own. Also, when we hire third party facilities in some places (e.g. Nubra Valley and Pangong in Ladakh) we order non-veg food as part of the package.
  6. If the pleasure of ‘non veg food’ is being denied by circumstances and design then we suggest you to see beyond non-veg food, as we leave no stone unturned to manage pleasure beyond words for you.
