gaggan, asia’s number one

gaggan-maingaggan asia’s number one restaurant, is definitely not the stereotypical indian-as-you-know-it. elaborated punjub theme exuding exotic opulence with warm, vibrant colors and layers of texture.. is probably what you’d imagine. but instead you enter a stunning whitewashed colonial style wooden house where it makes you feel at home (despite the fact that you can’t help but feel a little uncomfortable with the bill that is soon to come your way).

gaggan-1 gaggan-2 gaggan-4gaggan pushes the boundaries yet is never too serious. just take this whimsical touch of presenting the 22-course menu with emojis. although i couldn’t help but be a little skeptical about the 10th dish..

gaggan-3 gaggan-5 gaggan-6 gaggan-7 gaggan-8 gaggan-9 gaggan-10 gaggan-11 gaggan-12 gaggan-13 gaggan asia's number one restaurant gaggan-15 gaggan-16 gaggan-17 gaggan-18 gaggan-19 gaggan-20 gaggan-21 gaggan-22 gaggan-23 gaggan asia's number one restaurant gaggan-25as it is for many well known ‘experimental’ and ‘progressive’ restaurants as gaggan, i’d say it’s emphasis is on experience over food. but i mean at least i get to tick off dining at asia’ number one restaurant, right?

    The presentation of all of the dishes is so beautiful! Haha and yes, I’d be quite skeptical of #10 too :D LOL! The location and the decor is amazing – I love how modern it feels! Your photos are making my mouth water, Annie <3

    The food looks beautiful, but did all those small dishes really fill you up? The emoji approach is fun, but I’m thinking this is the kind of place that you would only want to visit once just for the experience.

    Wow this places sure is insta-perfect! I love the emoji menu, at first I thought it was their business card or something but oh my does each platter look as cute if not cuter than their “logo”? Haha~ I love the presentation of the jelly-ish pink lips, it looked so good! Did you like it? What was your fav? :) xo~ Lena
