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.
