Meta in Singapore is the recipient of the 2021 American Express One To Watch Award. Selected by the organisers of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, in collaboration with its regional experts, the American Express One To Watch Award is presented to a restaurant that is outside the main Asia’s 50 Best list but is identified as the rising star of the region.
Opened in 2016 by South Korean-born chef Sun Kim, Meta celebrates authentic Asian flavours and high-end European cooking techniques. Since Meta’s launch, Kim’s culinary style has evolved and matured, drawing increased inspiration from his Korean heritage.
William Drew, Director of Content at Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, says: “While Meta honours Chef Kim’s Korean heritage and the traditional dishes of his childhood, the menu boldly integrates elements of Japanese and French cuisines.”
Chef Kim’s achievements will be celebrated as part of the online ceremony for Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2021 on 25th March, from 4.30pm HK/SG (5.30pm JPN), which will be broadcast to a global audience via Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants Facebook and the 50 Best Restaurants TV YouTube channel.
