First Ever Pop-Up Restaurant in Dubai for World-Class Indian Chef

One&Only Royal Mirage to welcome Chef Gaggan Anand

One&Only Royal Mirage is very excited to partner with world-class Indian Chef Gaggan Anand of the award-winning Gaggan restaurant to create a pop-up restaurant this March at the resort’s fine dining restaurant, Celebrities.

Born and raised in Kolkata, Chef Gaggan moved to Bangkok in 2007 to pursue his culinary dream. His namesake restaurant, Gaggan, opened in 2010 and has since repeatedly found itself winning awards, including being listed in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, and as the best restaurant in Asia last year for the second year running in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurant Awards.

Following on from similar culinary journeys in Hong Kong, Mumbai and New Delhi, Chef Gaggan is now visiting Dubai for the first time for a pop-up restaurant which will see the master chef bring his ‘Indian progressive cuisine’ to the city on 3, 4 and 5 March 2017. Guests will be able to embark on a gastronomic discovery while enjoying over fifteen courses from the ‘Best of Gaggan’ Tasting Menu. The menu promises to feature some of the chef’s signature dishes, which will only be revealed on the night, and the highlight will include a live demonstration by Chef Gaggan of one of the dishes.

“I am very excited to visit Dubai and host a pop-up restaurant at One&Only Royal Mirage,” commented Chef Gaggan Anand. “It will be the first time I serve my ‘Best of Gaggan’ menu in Dubai, and I plan to excite the minds and palates of all the guests joining the dinners. I hope that my progressive Indian cuisine, each course designed to be one bite, will have guests discover more and really help tell a story about what I love to do most.”

Chef Gaggan’s degustation menu is priced at AED 825 per person and AED 1275 per person paired with the sommelier’s selection of world-class wines. The Tasting Menu ensures to cross the boundaries of traditional cuisine and create a culinary experience, offering and innovation with a modern twist. Reservations are highly recommended as the seating capacity will be limited to 40 guests per evening.
