Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen pop-up to return to Amilla Fushi in festive season
Amilla Fushi is set to host the second pop-up of The Bread Street Kitchen by Gordon Ramsay during the upcoming festive season.
In May 2017, Amilla kicked off the first of three stages by the team from Gordon Ramsay’s celebrated London restaurant, Bread Street Kitchen. The next pop up at Amilla Fushi’s popular Barolo Grill is scheduled for the festive season, from December 22 to January 10, 2018.
Amilla will welcome The Bread Street Kitchen’s team one more time, in Easter 2018.
The pop-up menu at Amilla features signature dishes from Bread Street Kitchen London, many of which have been given unique Maldivian twists. Grass-fed meats cooked on an open flame grill sit alongside classics recreated using local ingredients such as Red Snapper carpaccio, ginger dressing, horseradish, avocado and wakame; spicy tuna tartare with chilli garlic, sesame oil, spring onions and wonton crisps; Chermoula spiced prawns with pickled veg, shallots, celery and chilli dressing, and a compressed Bombay Gin watermelon salad.
The Bread Street Kitchen London’s cocktail list has also been given a Maldivian makeover, bringing tropical flavours into classic cocktails. Mouthwatering cocktails created especially for the event include It’s About Thyme, a refreshing vodka-based cocktail with Limoncello, thyme syrup, Champagne and lemon foam, the fruity Grey Goose Royal, with Grey Goose vodka, Aperol, lime, passion fruit and Testulat Brut cart d’Or and many more.
Amilla says the calendar of pop-up events further underlines its deserved reputation for culinary excellence and creativity, complementing the sophisticated, gourmet Emperor General Store café-deli, the carefully curated fine wines and artisanal cheeses at the island’s The Wine Shop and Cellar Door.
Meanwhile, Amilla’s fabulous 60-cover, signature overwater restaurant Feeling Koi — brainchild of the resort’s curator and CEO of the Small Maldives Island Co. Mark Hehir — showcases a selection of artfully crafted sushi, nigiri and sashimi in Japanese-inspired minimalist surroundings, with a private open-air dining room and open deck seating by the water’s edge and an open kitchen.
Located just 30 minutes by seaplane from the main Velana International Airport, Amilla offers a choice of 59 Houses that sit gracefully over crystal clear waters, nestled amongst lush tree tops or huggin the shores of pristine white sand. Additionally, eight spectacular four to eight-bedroom Beach Residences ideally suited to large families, groups of friends and VVIPs seeking the ultimate in space and privacy are also available.
Amilla’s innovative restaurants range from the diverse, informal foodie hub Baazaar to the relaxed yet sophisticated overwater dining at the signature Feeling Koi. Guests can even drop in to gourmet café and deli The Emperor General Store or The Wine Shop and Cellar Door to treat themselves to lighter snacks, a favourite bottle or a gourmet selection of artisanal cheeses.
With an unrivalled range of purpose-designed multi-bedroom accommodation options, and an exciting, inspiring and active Kids’ Club, Amilla is putting the Maldives on the map as a destination not just for couples, but for families and friends.
