Baazaar

Amilla Fushi's relaxed and unstuffy approach to glamour has ensured its place as a favourite among elite travellers visiting the Maldives. Nowhere is its barefoot luxury approach more evident than in its chilled-out foodie hub Baazaar, which gives guests the opportunity to indulge in diverse culinary offerings from around the world whilst relaxing around one of the biggest swimming pools in the Maldives. As part of Amilla Fushi’s always exciting and ever-evolving food and beverage offerings, a visiting chef’s programme has been created that introduces internationally renowned culinary talents as well as world famous brands to enhance guests’ island experience.

In the coming 12 months, Barolo Grill at Baazaar will showcase a select series of pop-ups by culinary greats, kicking off on 1 – 10 May 2017 with the first of four stages this year by the team from Gordon Ramsay’s celebrated London restaurant, Bread Street Kitchen. A further three Bread Street Kitchen pop-ups are scheduled for 16 – 27 October, 19 December 2017 to 10 January 2018 (Festive Season) and 23 March to 7 April 2018 (Easter).

Reflecting a similarly relaxed approach, 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 from Bread Street Kitchen London, many of which have been given unique Maldivian twists. Grass-fed meats cooked on an open flame grill, will 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 Amilla Fushi will also offer a daily fish special. Gordon Ramsay chefs will choose a fish that has come in on the boats and create a bespoke fish dish each day.

The Bread Street Kitchen London 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.

The upcoming calendar of pop up events further underlines Amilla’s 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 & Cellar Door. Amilla’s fabulous 60-cover, signature over-water 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.
