Brought to you by Gaggan Anand, one of Bangkok’s most recognizable culinary heavyweights, Ms. Maria and Mr. Singh will open at a new location above the eponymous Gaggan Anand on Friday this week.
To celebrate their first night open on Mar 3, the venue will host a seven-course tasting menu in a collaboration with Gut Oggau wines at B2,500 per person with a glass of wine. Though Gaggan Anand Restaurant is popular with foodies around the world, they didn't do much with the second floor and decided to move in Ms. Maria and Mr. Singh in February. The design will follow a similar mixed style modeled on Oaxaca and Jodhpur.
In contrast to its ultra-high-end fare downstairs, the cuisine at Ms. Maria and Mr. Singh is a mix of Indian and Mexican cuisine. Though the space and new menu are both slightly smaller, expect classic dishes from new head chef Hernan Crispin Villalva such as ceviche cold curry scallop (B420), keema quesadilla (B350) and Gaggan's crab curry (B790) and a few new dishes such as the Black Angus short ribs birra (B1,890), cerviche de yuca (B320), and pollo a la brasa (THB 880). Also, expect a few punchy new cocktails.
The first Ms. Maria and Mr. Singh opened in Bangkok around three years ago, and they served their last in-house in Ekkamai on Feb 25.
The official opening date for the restaurant is Mar 4, and reservations can be made at email@example.com or on Line at @mariaandsingh.
