We couldn’t get a table at Gaggan at last minute notice, and managed to squeeze a reservation in at Asia’s World 50 best restaurant #39 Bangkok’s Issaya. Looking forward to eating at Gaggan and Nham on this next trip to Thailand. Well, Issaya, had I known there was the same outfit in Hong Kong – […]
