Gaggan is currently sitting at Number 3 on the San Pellegrino list of " The best restaurants in Asia ". An achievement to be very proud of for the Gaggan team as there`s an awful lot of restaurants in Asia. This was my second visit to Bangkoks Gaggan restaurant and this time i went for the " India reinvented " menu . My first trip is on my food blog so just search Cumbriafoodie and Gaggan to see the photos in decent size. There`s a choice of 3 menus at Gaggan and these are -
" Taste of Gaggan " - 10 courses of the classics " for 1800 baht. ( £33 ) ( $ 56 )
" India re-invented " - 11 courses for 2800 baht. ( £ 52 ) ( $ 88 )
" The Best of Gaggan " - 16 courses for 4000 baht. ( £74 ) ( $ 125 )
As with many of the restaurants in Asia there is also the small print add ons . These unforseen extras will bump your bill up by a whopping 17% and comprise of a 10% service charge and a 7% VAT.
All in all , you certainly won`t be disappointed . The building exterior and interior are absolutely stunning. The service is friendly and good , The cocktails are exciting and the food is quirky , wacky and well cooked..... It`s a fun place to go for food in Bangkok.
Here`s a few of the courses that you`ll be getting at Gaggan . Chef`s twist on the classics. My highlight was without doubt the Lamb Chops which arrive at the table under a cloche of smoke.... The flavour of the smoke and charred meat is totally amazing.
