The best restaurants and cafes near BTS Ploen Chit
Number one on the list of Asia’s Best 50 Restaurants for 2016, Gaggan offers one of the best and most enjoyable Indian dining experiences you could have in Bangkok. Chef Gaggan Anand honed his skills in molecular gastronomy at famous three Michelin-star restaurant El Bulli, and has developed what he calls “progressive Indian cuisine.” Tucked within Langsuan, the white, two-story house is a pleasant and modest contrast to their innovative alchemic cooking style. The Chef Dining area (which is always reserved) sits right next to the kitchen’s glass window, offering diners a view of how the chefs prepare each molecular dish. Sounds good, right? They recommend the Testing Menu, a true representation of Gaggan-ness. Yogurt Explosion, bite-sized homemade yogurt with the texture of caviar, is going to surprise and prepare you for the other dishes. The following courses are all cutting-edge and fun: Mumbaiwalla, creative ball-shaped pav bhaji; Viagra, fresh oysters served with Indian mustard ice cream; and airlight truffle soup. Go and see what the fuss is all about.

Chikalicious Dessert Bar is going to gives you a fine dining experience—comes in sweetness. Their signature dessert like Strawberry Dough' Ssant, a mix between donut and croissant, is perfect with Gryphon Gold Moscato tea giving you flowery scent. At the moment we visited, there were six dessert sets to pick and the open kitchen counter is where you should take a seat because you’d get to see the pastry chefs cooking. Their courses start with an appetizer called Amuse: green apple sorbet (they use Granny Smith, fresh from Australia) served with caramel soup. The main course is White Chocolate Mousse with Vanilla Wafer and Strawberry Sorbet. It goes along very well with White Zinfandel as the chef suggests. And for the last course, they serve Petite Fours which are Coconut Marshmallow, Double Chocolate Sabléé, and Strawberry Choux to complete your sweet dream.
