Gaggan- Progressive Indian Cuisine

I’ve heard about Gaggan, Progressive Indian Cuisine, for a very long time ago but have never tried until June this year [2016]. The experience was impressive.

Here is what we had. This was a new [3 weeks released] menu. Just by looking through, i got super hungry and more than ready to start the course.

We took 2.45 hrs to finish with our drinks.

First, we do Bites- eat with hands.

Starting with the Pickled Plums Soda, the plums was so super juicy and was such a good start, refreshing taste.  And with the soda, right after you had it you knew the meal started.

The yogurt came like bubbles. This wasn’t just the yogurt though, it’s got some spices. This was my first little surprise. The two green packs are the Edible Plastic Spiced Nuts and seriously i wish i had 20 packs for my afternoon snacks… was so good that i’m still craving for it. You ate this with the plastic wrap. The wrap is made of rice. It’s like one of those Japanese milky canny wrap. Handy 😉

The silver ball on the right was something… was like chocolate but went bit, there was a splash of sour.

And here comes this one, the pork, before we had this the waiters were like, this one is good. We were like ‘OK’. Then we took it!! ‘Oh yeah, was so nice’. The pork is on top of this crispy noodle. the taste was intense with the  full flavor.

I’m sorry that I don’t normally eat uni so can’t comment this through. Ate this though, smelled with uni and mango. For me this was a little strange combination. Probably need my taste to mature more to get it. I loved the crispy cone.

Then come this one, we are not told what it is. Tasted and had to guess. The charcoal was very light. My guess was right, was fish.

Here comes my full surprise!! the tomato soup. I’ve never had something like this before in my life. All of the tomato soup was not so smooth like this. The soup was clear but thick in its taste with no actual tomatoes. I wanna have this everyday for my breakfast 🙂 Delighting the day!!

This is a thick mango taste. Didn’t feel any use of cream but creamy mango’s meat.

This sandalwood makes you feel like you are part of the earth, which you are but everyday’s living can make you feel so distant. This dessert guides you back through the earthy smell, give you the sense of silence and calmness.

I really enjoyed this wonderful meal. Each piece evoked my sensation. I used different senses in this 18-course meal.
