Asia's top chef is shifting his dream from Bangkok to Fukuoka

It's 10 years and done in Thailand for India's Gaggan Anand, with the next 10 going to Japan

BANGKOK When chef Gaggan Anand announced that he would be closing Gaggan, his eponymous Bangkok restaurant, in June 2020, foodies around the world rushed to make reservations. Now the eatery, which was always hard to get a table for, is booked solid for the next six months.

The news follows right after Gaggan took the top spot on Asia's 50 Best Restaurants for a record-breaking third straight year, and comes just as Bangkok gets its first Michelin guide in December. Many food critics think Gaggan is a safe bet for a star.
