To support the recovery of the hospitality sector, Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants – in association with S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna – announces ‘Essence of Asia’, an unranked collection of restaurants that represents the spirit of Asian gastronomy.
William Drew, Director of Content for Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, says: “At a time when restaurants need our support, this collection presents travelers and gourmets with an invaluable guide to some of Asia’s most authentic and diverse dining experiences. The range of establishments spans street vendors, time-honoured institutions, philanthropic businesses and pioneering newcomers.”
The collection comprises establishments in 49 cities across 20 countries and territories, stretching from Pakistan across to Japan. Integral to Asia’s culinary ecosystem, these restaurants honour culinary traditions, reinvent indigenous cuisines and revive centuries-old recipes, all while playing a key role within their communities.
This unranked selection will complement the ninth edition of the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list which will be revealed in an online ceremony on 25th March, from 4.30pm HK/SG (5.30pm JPN). The awards ceremony will be broadcast to a global audience via Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants Facebook, the 50 Best Restaurants TV YouTube channel and Zoom.
