For the uninitated, Gaggan Anand has labelled as the bad-boy rebel of Indian cuisine because of the fact that he has never been one to shy away from the limelight with culinary choices. The eccentric chef has completed a sold-out (and extended) residency at the Mandala Club in Singapore, and even run a recent self-titled pop-up in Singapore that sent foodie-fans into a frenzy—you'll never meet a man who is as honest and passionate about food (and music) as this one.
Following an extremely successful and cheeky venture in Bangkok some two years ago, Gaggan started Ms. Maria & Mr. Singh based on a fictitious origin story that reflects the love affair between a Mexican Girl, Ms. Maria and an Indian Boy, Mr. Singh. Expect nothing short of a medley of home-style Mexican and Indian cooking, which blend flavours and traditions, reproducing a menu that is romantically influenced by both cultures in the newly opening Singapore branch from October 24.
In an interview with our Editor-in-Chief, Gaggan said, "Let’s say… let’s say my food is exactly like the song ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ [by Queen]. Right? It’s opera, it’s tragic, it’s emotional, and it’s loud. These are all the emotions you get from my food. It’s provocative, it’s objectionable, it’s tasty, it’s fun; it’s memorable because you can’t just get that anywhere." True to his words, you can expect to find dishes on the menu that fit the brief to a T—including Golgappa Infladitas, Keema Quesadillas, Patrani Whole Fish Tamal, and Foie Gras Mango Yuzu—just to name a few.
