Picture in your mind's eye... flavours, techniques, and dishes from Pacific cultures oceanwide. From Peru to Japan... Philippines to Haida Gwaii... and Mexico to Korea, all with hints and twists from Chef Kunal Ghose's Indian culinary foundation. You're imagining dobosala cantina & ride-thru. An Indo-Pacific collaboration of South Asian, Latin, Polynesian, and even Indigenous dishes.
