Following the successful move to Macao in 2018, the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants awards ceremony and associated event program will return to the city-state in 2019. On the evening of Tuesday 26th March, Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants will gather the region’s most celebrated chefs, renowned restaurateurs, industry VIPs and international media at Wynn Palace Cotai to reveal the 2019 list and special award winners. The prestigious awards ceremony, sponsored by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna, is hosted with the support of Macao Government Tourism Office.
The gala awards evening is the highlight of a series of events over the week in Macao which will see the greatest culinary talent from across Asia gather for collaborative dinners, interactive talks and the annual Chefs’ Feast celebration. The 2019 program will include the popular #50BestTalks event at Wynn Macau, presented by Miele, on Monday 25th March. The one-day curated forum will bring together world-leading chefs and culinary leaders to discuss big ideas around sustainability, sourcing, over-consumption and other current issues facing chefs, restaurateurs and diners under the heading ‘Vital Ingredients’.
In 2018, Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants took a group of chefs from all over the region to discover historic and modern Macao as part of the #50BestExplores series. Visiting cooks Manish Mehrotra, Jason Tan, Hiroyasu Kawate, Ton Tassanakajohn, Jordy Navarra and Hiroe Higuchi explored Macao with local chefs Weng Keong, Alfredo Ho and Chow Chiu Chin. Find out what they discovered on their tour of the local markets, historic and cultural reference points and culinary experiences, in our 50 Best Explores Macao video.
