25 restaurants debut on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants extended list

The extended list of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022, from rank 51 to 100, was released on 22 March. Among the names are 25 new entrants.

The announcement comes just days ahead of the grand reveal of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022, the main list that will reveal the names of Asia’s top 50 restaurants.

William Drew, Director of Content at Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, which focuses on the best places to experience Asia’s fine dining and hospitality, said, “We’re thrilled to share this list to showcase the breadth and diversity of Asia’s gastronomic scene as well as new culinary trends.”

The highest rank attained by a newcomer in the 51-100 extended list was by Adachi Sushi of Taipei, which positioned itself at No.52.

The final list of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022 will be revealed via an online awards ceremony on 29 March. It can be seen via their official Facebook account and YouTube channel.

In a statement, Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, sponsored by S. Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, revealed that the list includes restaurants from 12 countries and regions.

Greater China, comprising Hong Kong, Mainland China and Macau, dominates the list. There are 10 restaurants from Hong Kong, six from Mainland China and three from Macau among the 50.

Among these, Jin Sha, a restaurant in Hangzhou, witnessed a phenomenal jump, rising 38 places to No.51.

Of the 25 new entries are some well-established restaurants, too. These include Singapore’s Lolla at No.75 and India’s Comorin at No.69, Americano at No.80 and The Table at No.85. Comorin shares its rank with the Philippines’ Gallery by Chele.

The other new entries include two from Thailand — Pru at No.61 and Lerdtip Wanghin at No.87.

The fine-dining restaurant Topaz, which was ranked No.90, brings Cambodia back on the list.

Other famous names to find their place on the list are Malaysia’s Eat and Cook, which was the 2022 recipient of the American Express One To Watch Award. The restaurant came in at No.81.

Four more from India feature on the list, including New Delhi-based Dum Pukht at No.73. Taiwan and Singapore each share five places on the list, while Thailand garnered a total of four places. Malaysia and the Philippines have three restaurants each.
