The two Asian fine dining restaurants Gaggan and Eight Tables both made my Top 3 Restaurant’s of 2017. How cool to see them come together for this fun popup charity dinner! This event supported Chef’s for Change. Good food for a good cause? Gotta love these win wins.

We were served a condensed version of Chef Gaggan Anand’s iconic emoji tasting menu, paired with wine and sake. Compared to my dinner last year at Gaggan Bangkok, the amount of food this time was more manageable and the flavors better overall. The vibe was also quite different than either of my prior experiences with the two restaurants. Chef Anand introduced each course with a fun story, there was loud music blaring in the background, and service seemed much more carefree. The communal tables also made for a fun and social evening.- Will Wander For Food (09.21.18)
