The French presence in Pondicherry has left many a mark on the culture of the place, its architecture, and cuisine. A very interesting and subtle blend of South Indian and French culinary art produced the “Creole” cuisine which is served in Hotel de l’Orient. The recipes were passed on to the Chef by old Pondicherrian families and feature a mix of sea food, meats, vegetables and rice, all prepared with the right spices and touches. A second dining-room is called “Carte Blanche”, which is a light-hearted reference to the old maps (called ‘cartes’ in French) of South India, hanging on the walls.
Broadly, we serve Continental and Creole cuisine with a few seafood dishes, to suit a range of tastes and palates.
