Asia's 50 best restaurants awards still carries its importance and the list was released during the grand event held in W Hotel Bangkok on February 21st, Tuesday night.
The top restaurant goes to Gaggan in Bangkok, which they also took the top spot last year, while Restaurant Andre in Bukit Pasoh Road was named the second-best restaurant in Asia, up from third position last year. Odette, located at National Gallery Singapore, came in ninth and was the highest new entry on the list, reported by straitstimes.com
Burnt Ends in Teck Lim Road came in 10th, up from 14th place last year, and its head chef Dave Pynt won the Chefs' Choice Award, Tippling Club also improved on its 31st placing last year by coming in 27th, the website continues.
Many people were thinking that this award would lose importance after the debut of the Michelin Guide in Singapore a year ago but apparently it is not really this way because the two lists are pretty different and have also a different type of targets too.
