MEAT FREE AND MAR­VELOUS

Step­ping into Ganglamedo can be con­fus­ing if you visit with­out any ex­pec­ta­tions. Its ex­tremely re­lax­ing en­vi­ron­ment in a shop­house along Craig Road can eas­ily be mis­taken for a spa with its all wooden in­te­ri­ors, serene light­ing, and re­lax­ing mu­sic. But per­haps all this is de­lib­er­ate, as the place is more than just a restau­rant, but a “sanc­tu­ary of el­e­vated tra­di­tion and ex­otic in­trigue” that caters to a va­ri­ety of di­etary re­quire­ments, re­stric­tions, and be­liefs. Upon vis­it­ing Ganglamedo, leave your meat-eat­ing ways out the door and pre­pare to feast on plant-based dishes, head­lined by the Cordy­ceps Si­ne­sis, a non-com­mer­cial­ized strain of fun­gus with the abil­ity to im­prove ail­ments rang­ing from heart to skin health. There is the com­fort­ing Cordy­ceps Dou­ble-boiled Soup with black truf­fle, mat­su­take, and bam­boo fun­gus, or opt for the Dry Toss Cordy­ceps Flower, which is a fresh salad mixed with car­rots, radish, and Enoki mush­rooms. There is also a spe­cial 5-course Cordy­ceps Menu that will take you on a fla­vor jour­ney that in­volves the spe­cial in­gre­di­ent in each course.

Be­yond cordy­ceps, Ganglamedo is also no­table for its Pure Veg­e­tar­ian Hot Pot, with var­i­ous soup bases com­prised of white pea, hot & sour, mush­room, or tomato, which pair per­fectly well with a col­or­ful se­lec­tion of the sea­son’s freshest veg­eta­bles, as well as rice and hand­made noo­dles.
