Exquisite dining experience at DK’s Haoma
The city of Allahabad is often associated with Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan. However there is another shining star who hails from this vibrant city in Uttar Pradesh and has made Bangkok in the kingdom of Thailand, his home. Although yet to officially be given a Michelin Star, Chef Deepankar Khosla or DK as he is fondly referred to by all his fans, has won countless hearts and we all remain convinced that his evolved culinary skills will soon earn him a visit from the Michelin man. Last Saturday, Laveena and I visited DK’s Haoma, tucked away in a quiet leafy soi off Sukhumvit road. In what was once his home, DK has set up a mini farm with a razor sharp focus on sustainability, the brand new buzzword of our corporate world.
Once we were welcomed inside the restaurant, we soaked in the forest like elegance of the eco-friendly decor which had a surprisingly pleasing aesthetic element to it. The music was meditative with an almost spiritual undertone and as we were taking it all in, the food magic began.
