Gaggan, Bangkok Drawing on his memories of the amazing street food and the diversity of India’s different regional cuisines, Chef Gaggan Anand has used science and modern technology to create modernist and progressive reinterpretations of traditional recipes. Set in a stunning colonial-style wooden house in the heart of downtown Bangkok, the award-winning Gaggan offers a culinary experience like no other. The space features cane furniture, ceiling fans and whitewashed walls, giving it an elegant charm. There are several private dining spaces, including one looking directly into the kitchen where guests can witness the gastronomic wizardry for themselves. Polished service and an excellent drinks list complete the standout experience. The restaurant has been recognised as one of the top culinary destinations in Bangkok for residents as well as visitors, and TIME magazine has dubbed Chef Gaggan the “Captain Kirk of cuisine”.
The menus are inspired by seasonal ingredients, the freshest produce, the amazing diversity of India’s regional cuisines, and childhood street food memories from the Chef. Over the course of one evening guests travel on a special culinary journey, as they sample the Gaggan Experience and discover the true meaning of progressive Indian cuisine. Dishes include favourites such as Beauty and the Beast – young potatoes stuffed with sun-dried figs – and Green with Envy – green peppercorn chicken kebabs combined with coriander foam – each menu item is big on impact, but never at the expense of flavour. Set up in 2010, Gaggan has consistently been at the top of the world’s best restaurant lists, and has been described as an “innovation & design guru who changed Indian food”. www.eatatgaggan.com
