Ranked as the Asia’s Best Restaurant and one of the World’s 50 Best Restaurant, Restaurant Gaggan is a fine-dining place where serves deconstructed and unexpectedly dramatic Indian cuisine. It is named after the owner and head chef Gaggan Anand, who has years of experience at El Bulli and progressively developing his culinary skills to make his restaurant one of the best in the whole of Asia.
Here offers one menu of the day, which includes a list of appetizers, mains and desserts with one-of-a-kind names. Starting from a pickled plum soda, it is a so refreshing and surprises further come with a spoonful of yogurt explosion, an edible plastic bag carrying wasabi spiced nuts, a bomb of mango juice and powdery curry cookies.
I am fascinated by the Chef’s philosophy, which is to stay true with traditional flavor but in a modern and fun molecular approach, as the menu follows with spicy pork with crispy potato noodle, chocolate cracker with chicken liver pate, a deletable piece of grilled eel on plantain chip, and finally mango ice cream cone topped with fresh uni.
A surprise from Chef Gaggan is a charcoal-like croquette made with sea bass, mashed potato, onion and curry powder, a magic mushroom that is possibly the best mushroom dish I have ever had in life.
Red matcha means tomato soup with fresh tomato, plum grape; while the tandoori lamb chop is so perfectly tender and succulent (noted that I am not a fan of lamb, no never!).
We have a big plate of dessert, peach snowball, aka melba ice, served with crystal-like ginger snow, fresh Japanese white peach and crushed nuts. Wow!
This is truly the worthiest visit I have ever made!
