Best restaurants list for Asia in Feb

On Feb 25 next year, Marina Bay Sands will host the inaugural awards ceremony to honour Asia's 50 Best Restaurants.

The list is part of the coveted World's 50 Best Restaurants programme, which has been organised by publisher William Reed Business Media (WRBM) for the past decade.

 

Of the new list, Mr William Drew of WRBM, says: "This launch champions the significant growth of the industry in Asia and provides restaurants with international peer reviews and recommendation."

The seven award categories are for Lifetime Achievement, Best Female Chef, Best Pastry Chef, Chef's Choice, The Best Restaurant In Asia, One To Watch and Individual Country awards. He had told Life! in May that the idea to have a separate list for restaurants in Asia came about last year.

The world list will still contain restaurants in Asia, should they receive enough votes from The World's 50 Best Restaurants Academy, which has an influential group of more than 900 restaurant industry experts from 26 regions.

Each region has its own panel of 36 members who have seven votes each, out of which at least three must be used for restaurants outside of the voters' region.

As part of the programme, chefs from restaurants on the list will also recommend their favourite eateries, from fine dining to hawker stalls.

Together with the restaurant list, the hawker line-up will be published online on the same day immediately after the awards ceremony.

Other events include the Asia's Best Dinner on Feb 24 at Mandarin Oriental hotel prepared by four Asia-based guest chefs from The World's 50 Best Restaurants list.

There will also be two half-day session culinary workshops at At-Sunrice GlobalChef Academy on Feb 24 and 25, where the chefs will share their knowledge on blending traditional and modern cuisine.
