Gallery Vask in Bonifacio Global City remains as “The Best Restaurant in the Philippines” on the list of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants announced in Bangkok last week. Ranked No. 35, the restaurant is the only Philippines-based business which made it to the list.
The list describes Gallery Vask’s food as follow:
Inspired by his travels, the chef looks for new ways to present dishes and is always on the hunt for unusual ingredients. Signature plates include Adlai, a native cereal often used in the Philippine highlands instead of wheat and rice. The grain is teamed with bagoong paste made from fermented shrimp and aromatics, served with sea urchin and pigeon and finished with gotu kola hearts, an aromatic herb traditionally used for medicinal purposes.
Meanwhile, Gaggan in Bangkok claims the No.1 spot for a third consecutive year and retains the titles of The Best Restaurant in Asia. Rising one place to No.2, Restaurant Andre retains the title of The Best Restaurant in Singapore, while Amber (No.3) in Hong Kong is named The Best Restaurant in China.
The list is created from the votes of the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy, an influential group of over 300 leaders in the restaurant industry across Asia.
