Tucked away on a quiet little lane off of Soi Lang Suan, you'll find the most charming Indian restaurant in all of Bangkok. Set in a restored colonial Thai home, Gaggan, named for its chef, is a charming little restaurant turning out progressive Indian food with a twist. The result is simply delicious! And it's the site of our next AWC Limited Luncheon. Fabulous!
While Chef Gaggan earned a solid reputation for culinary creativity (he was the brains behind the contemporary Indian cuisine at‚ "Red" on Thong Lor and worked as chef de cuisine at‚ "Lebua"), it's with this restaurant that a paradigm shift has occurred for the chef, Bangkok's dining scene and, he hopes, Indian cuisine in general.
Gaggan's unconventional approach to his native cuisine went into hyperdrive when he studied for eight weeks in Spain under one of the world's greatest chefs, Michelin-starred chef Ferran Adria of El Bulli.
It was in Catalonia that Gaggan, the first Indian to enter Adria's culinary research laboratory, learned the techniques of what has become known as molecular gastronomy. While not particularly fond of the term, Gaggan learned the deconstructive approach to cooking that emphasizes creating an experience that appeals to all of the senses, and the results are, in a word, delectable.
Chef Gaggan and his staff are preparing a sumptuous 5-course luncheon to delight our senses; one menu especially for vegetarians and one for those of us who are not vegetarians. When signing up you choose Non-Vegetarian or Vegetarian, and then at the restaurant, you'll get to make the other selections.
