Inching closer to the coveted No.1 spot, chef André Chiang’s Restaurant André rises one place to No.2 and retains the title of The Best Restaurant in Singapore, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna.
The 2017 list welcomes 10 new entries, including Odette from Singapore. Chef-owner Julien Royer’s restaurant at the iconic National Gallery Singapore also claims the Highest New Entry Award, sponsored by Mekhong.
Debuting at No.9, Odette is the highest new entry in the list’s five-year history. Singapore ties with China, Japan and Thailand with nine restaurants on the list. Dave Pynt from Burnt Ends (No.10) in Singapore is the 2017 recipient of the Chefs’ Choice Award, sponsored by Peroni.
Since 2013, Pynt has been turning up the heat at the gourmet barbecue restaurant. Pynt’s mastery of various cooking techniques – from smoking and slow roasting to grilling – has earned him the respect of his regional peers.
Burnt Ends debuted on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list in 2015 at No.30. Other Singapore entries include Les Amis (No.16), Waku Ghin (No.20), Corner House (No.23) Tippling Club (No.27), Jaan (No.42) and Shinji By Kanesaka (No.44).
