Dig in! Celebrity Chef and Top Chef Middle East Judge, Bobby Chinn, joins us in the Maldives to showcase modern Vietnamese cuisine. See what he's cooking up for us below!

Author and restaurateur Bobby Chinn will be hosting special events in Guduguda, our authentic Maldivian restaurant and the first of its kind in the Maldives, for an exclusive two-week residency from October 1st to 16th, 2021. The first in a series of internationally-renowned culinary showcase, Chef Bobby will introduce modern Vietnamese and Pan-Asian cuisine, with his playful twist of bridging east and west.

Taste Bobby’s specially-curated menu, which will be presented at Guduguda, styled in a traditional Maldivian setting, low on the floor on cushions indoor and out, and overlooking the stunning turquoise Maldivian waters. Chef Bobby will be serving family style meals into a symphony of small plates and a Pan-Asian 8-course set dinner. The set course menu will feature some of his signature dishes; for example, tamarind glazed crab cake; green tea smoked rack of lamb; lobster cellophane noodles; and chocolate molten cake made from Vietnam's own artisanal chocolate maker Marou.
