In a ranking of Asia’s fine dining hotspots, a Singaporean restaurant took the top prize this year. Odette serves contemporary French with Asian influences and was awarded the title of Asia’s Best Restaurant in a Best 50 ranking by business magazine William Reed Business Media.
Yet, Tokyo was the city most prominently featured on the top 10 list with four dining spots located in the Japanese capital. Singapore and Bangkok were both included twice.
While most mentioned Tokyo locations specialize in homegrown Japanese food
, one restaurant located in the Thai capital and featured on the list offers a surprising type of cuisine: Sühring is run by twins from Berlin and serves up modern German fare. In a twist of events, the highest listed German restaurant on the Best 50 restaurants global list (rank 37) specializes in Asian fusion cooking and is located in – Berlin.
The fine foods offered in restaurants currently ranked on any of the publication’s lists don’t come cheap. An eight-course dinner at Asia’s best restaurant Odette costs US$240 per person.
