Gili Goes Healthy with Executive Chef Harinath Govindaraj

Gili Goes Healthy with Executive Chef Harinath Govindaraj

As we so often say, health is wealth and Gili Lankanfushi has taken that literally with their ‘Gili goes Healthy ‘ campaign. With a vision for guests to have a healthy diet fueled by light and fresh meals, Chef Harinath (Hari) Govindaraj has introduced a lunchtime “Hari’s Super Foods” menu at Overwater Bar.

Inspired by the popular Buddha Bowl for vegetarians and the growing interest in plant-based diet, Chef Hari aims to provide healthier and lighter meal options for guests of the resort. The new menu offers a selection of five different healthy bowls: Exotic, Local, Spicy & Spices, Roasted Veggies, and Greens. Each bowl presents a few ingredients from their organic garden, a variation of breads, grains, nuts, seeds and unique dressing to compliment the dish, along with an option to top the dish with a protein such as poached eggs, seared tuna belly, or a seared beef fillet for meat lovers.

Epicureans who are adventurous with food may consider the existing Gili Vegan Experience, a refreshing bespoke experience in the resort’s organic garden, and an opportunity to get up close and personal with Chef Hari. In addition to interactive dining with the chef, the Gili Vegan Experience will expose you to different combinations of ingredients you may not have discovered as well as introducing plant-based living to everyone, from vegans to meat lovers.

Discover the endless dining options available on the little coral island of Gili Lankanfushi, Maldives. From popular themed nights to bespoke destination dining experiences, the Gili Culinary Team is ready to delight you with a mouth-watering meal at any time.
