Created in 2008 to celebrate the fast-developing fine cuisine scene in Asia, The Miele Guide has annually ranked Asia’s Top 20 Restaurants.
After undergoing a four-phase selection process that considers public opinion and rigorous reviews by a panel of uncompromising food critics, an annual list of Asia’s Best restaurants is released covering restaurants in 17 Asian countries.
The selection process calls on voters, judges and jury members to consider the following: (1) the quality of the food served; (2) the ambience of the restaurant; and (3) the level of service offered, Finally, selectors are asked to consider the tastes of Asian diners in casting their vote.
The 2013 edition of Asia’s Top 20 Restaurants was announced in Singapore on January 22, 2013.
Winning top honors again were the Robuchon au Dome (Macau) and L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon (Hong Kong), winning first and third place, respectively, in this year’s list. Winning second-place honor was Waku Ghin (Singapore) – a restaurant operated by Japan-born Australian chef Tetsuya Wakuda.
