Gaggan Anand is no stranger to the unusual collaboration
. Now, the celebrity chef is joining hands with a fashion and food powerhouse, as well as Grab Food, a delivery service that is favored among consumers but maligned in the food service industry.
The Lunch Box (and Dinner) Project
sees Gaggan going mass market for the first time, co-creating a menu of dishes for delivery with Greyhound Cafe, the food wing of the fashion empire.
The menu features boujee-but-accessible dishes like multigrain khao tom with smoked foie gras (B480), foie gras and chicken curry puffs with truffle aioli (B375), chicken tikka masala rigatoni (B290), and the “mangmisu” (B235).
Like all of Bangkok’s fine dining pioneers, Gaggan’s business has been largely upended over the past 14 months. With dine-in currently limited to 25 percent of capacity, many restaurateurs have weighed the pros and cons of reopening at all. Some, like Tim Butler of Eat Me
, for instance, have elected to keep their restaurants closed for the time being.
Recently, Gaggan began serving a la carte dishes for the first time at his eponymous Gaggan Anand
, giving more Bangkok diners access to his award-decorated cuisine than ever before. With this venture, his food is arguably more accessible than ever.
The delivery campaign runs until June 30. Orders can be made via the Grab Food delivery app.
Gaggan has also teamed up with UNICEF to raise funds for India, which has been battered by a surge in Covid-19 infections. All funds will go toward the purchase of medical supplies. To donate to the campaign, visit this website
