With the announcement of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants List, two of the very best are in Bangkok City. Luxxetta are proud to see Gaggan and Nahm make it on to the global gastronomy and culinary billboard.
Ranked 23: Gaggan
Bridging the culinary divide between East and West is the mission statement of Kolkata-born chef Gaggan Anand, whose Bangkok restaurant has received widespread acclaim for its singular take on Indian cuisine. Housed in a breathtakingly beautiful colonial-style house, the restaurant is divided into a series of characterful private dining rooms, which remain faithful to the building’s past with cane furniture, ceiling fans and simple white-washed walls.
The genteel backdrop belies Gaggan’s adventurous and creative food, which sees him reinterpreting classic Indian dishes with modernist cooking techniques, some of which were garnered during an inspirational internship with the research team of el Bulli under the guidance of Ferran Adrià. There is plenty of molecular wizardry on the menu with foams, smokes and liquid nitrogen used to a clever effect in the humorously named dishes.
Magic Mushroom: Truffle, forest mushrooms in the shape of a log, edible soil and “the garden”.
Potato 2 some crispy & liquid inspired from the birds nests but creating the memory of street food of Kolkata.
