Gaggan (Bangkok, Thailand)
I wasn’t sure I wanted to try Gaggan. Despite it being ranked the “fifth best restaurant in the world” and garnering two Michelin stars, I felt uneasy about dining at an Indian restaurant in Thailand. It just seemed very counter-intuitive. Further, its 6,500 THB/$200 price tag is downright expensive compared to almost any other fine dining restaurant in the city. Regardless, I made the plunge and settled in for 25 courses of Gaggan Anand’s unique interpretation of Indian cuisine.
