Amilla Fushi’s food rejuvenation
The evolution of the Maldivian island dining experience continues apace at Amilla Fushi, with the unveiling of its newest Destination Dining space, the Mystique Garden, and its partnership with Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen.
Wreathed in banyans and coconut palms in the lush heart of the island, the hidden Mystique Garden is a reflection of the fresh, creative approach of Amilla’s chefs, offering guests a personalised private dining experience with a dash of signature sparkle.
Guests entering the Mystique Garden can let their imagination run wild with a bespoke menu tailored to their personal tastes by a private chef, or delve into the family-style set menus. Options include a seafood barbecue where oysters, prawns, squid and reef fish take centre stage; an Asian-inspired feast featuring Peking duck, Hong Kong noodles and a Royal Tandoori selection; or an Arabian grill with shrimp majboos, lamb ouzi and fish sharmola. The vegetarian barbecue menu includes wild mushroom risotto, barbecue-baked sweet potato and marinated vegetable skewers.
The resort also announced a year-long series of pop-up residencies by some of the hottest names in the business, kicking off with a four-stage partnership with Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen at Barolo Grill at Baazaar. Following the success of the May pop-up, three more are confirmed for 16 – 27 October; 19 December 2017 to 10 January 2018; and 23 March to 7 April 2018.
London’s Bread Street Kitchen is a lively hangout that uses fresh, seasonal ingredients and delivers globally inspired menus to the high standards expected from a Gordon Ramsay Restaurant. The pop up’s menu at Amilla Fushi will feature signature dishes with Maldivian twists. Grass-fed meats cooked on an open flame grill will sit alongside local ingredients including Red Snapper carpaccio; spicy tuna tartare; Chermoula-spiced prawns, and a compressed Bombay Gin watermelon salad. The cocktail list has also been given a Maldivian makeover, bringing tropical flavours into classic cocktails.
