Bâgan is excited to be back this September with another Burmese banquet at the wonderful Vagabond, a charming space on Holloway Road, handmade from reclaimed wood and other tactile gorgeous materials.
Bâgan means bowl in Burmese but is also the name of an ancient city in Myanmar, formerly known as Burma. It is a city full of temples and tamarind trees, caught in a bend of the Irrawaddy river.
Cordelia Peel, founder and head chef of Bâgan, is a doctor with Burmese heritage and a passion for cooking and entertaining, who has created her own contemporary take on Burmese cuisine. Through Bâgan with Emma and Lucy, she wishes to bring people together over food to create connections, good vibes and beautiful food memories. Bâgan is also a celebration of Cordelia's Burmese family, particularly her mother Carmen and Grandad, Abraham Ganda, who are huge sources of her inspiration.
Bâgan is a multi-sensory experience. The team like to bring like-minded people together in interesting and unique spaces, to enjoy delicious, contemporary Burmese food and good music.
