Gaggan

On our final night in Bangkok, my cousin Alessa, her husband PJ, and I went on a gastronomical adventure and headed to Gaggan for a late dinner. Whenever I see the pictures from our dinner, I still get heady with excitement. It was a memorable meal and an amazing experience, capped off with meeting Chef Gaggan Anand himself.

 

Gaggan's lovely, whitewashed, colonial style, wooden house belies the innovation in its kitchen.

The most exciting assortment of amuse bouche ever. The "plastic bag" is made out of rice paper and completely edible. Pop the whole thing in.
