Asia's 50 Best Restaurants 2016: Gaggan Claims the Top Spot, Gallery Vask Named Philippine's Best Restaurant at No. 39th

Gaggan claims the top spot once more in the 2016 edition of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants. The Bangkok-based Indian restaurant ranked first place for the second consecutive year, edging out world-renowned restaurants like Narisawa (No. 2) from Japan, Andre (No. 3) from Singapore, and Amber (No.4) from Hong Kong.

Gallery Vask (No. 39), the innovative Spanish restaurant in Bonifacio Global City, was named as the best restaurant in the Philippines. For a full review of Vask, check out this blog post. Tagaytay-darling Antonio's, which ranked No. 48th in the 2015 edition, sadly did not make the cut to be included in Asia's top 50 restaurants this year.

The 2016 edition also named Chef Margarita Fores of Cibo, Grace Park, and Lusso as Asia's Best Female Chef for 2016. Overall, this was a great year for the Philippine food industry and I'm hoping that more Philippine restaurants will make the list in the years to come!
