On the 26th of March, the seventh presentation gala of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants took place in Wynn Palace (Macao), with the Restaurant Odette in Singapore, led by young chef Julien Royer, being classified as Asia’s Best Restaurant.

The chef took the top spot for the first time, dethroning the Restaurant Gaggan, belonging to Chef Gaggan Anand, who had held the top spot for four consecutive years.

“We didn’t expect it and we’re very grateful to everyone who loves our food, our cuisine and our restaurant. It’s been four incredible years for us (since we opened the restaurant). It’s not just about food, it’s more than that. Tonight is a very special night for us. We are extremely happy and grateful”.

The list was recently published by OAD (Opinionated About Dining) based on the experience and opinions of the people who contribute to it (300 industry experts, including food writers, critics, chefs and restaurant owners).

The ceremony also honoured the winner of the controversial Asia’s Best Female Chef 2019, Garima Arora, the executive chef of the restaurant Gaa in Bangkok (in spot number 16 on the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list for this year) who last year became the first Indian woman to be awarded a Michelin star.
