THE GRAND TRUNK ROAD SUPPERCLUB
The Grand Trunk Road supperclub is a culinary journey along the ancient trade route in South Asia.
Each dish traces the steps of the merchant caravans journeying across South Asia, from Kabul, Afghanistan, through northern Pakistan, across India, to settle at the most eastern edge of Bangladesh in Teknaf.
The menu features the culinary specialities along the route that have evolved through the migration of people and their food, shaping the dinner tables across the larger Asian sub-continent. Each dish recounts tales of the subain (regions) along the way, capturing their sense of place and history.
The dining experience will reflect the unique styles of service at each resting station en route. Communal eating from sharing platters is what brings people together here where strangers from diverse communities congregate for their dinner.
