Toyo Eatery, Mecha Uma, and Gallery by Chele featured in OAD's 2020 Top 100+ Asia Restaurants

Global restaurant ranking system Opinionated About Dining (OAD) has revealed the Top 100+ Asia Restaurants of 2020, as voted by an expert membership of the world's most discerning palates and trusted connoisseurs. Three Philippine restaurants made it to the list.

Toyo Eatery, a Modern Filipino restaurant in Makati by Chef Jordy Navarra, comes in 43rd place. In 2019, it was hailed as one of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants.

Offering 'creative cuisine' is number 82: Mecha Uma by Chef Bruce Ricketts. This BGC-based restaurant was the lone entry in last year's list (#77).

Gallery by Chele, owned by Chef Chele González, ranks at 113th place. Also located in BGC, it's the laid-back version of Gallery VASK, one of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants for two consecutive years.

Topping the coveted list of the region's highest-rated culinary contenders in 1st place for the second year running is Ultra-Violet by Paul Pairet, a single-table experimental restaurant in Shanghai, China, that unites creative cuisine with multi-sensory technology.

Marking its historic debut on the list in 2nd place is Sorn by Supaksorn "Ice" Jongsiri from Bangkok, Thailand. Set within an old, reconstructed house, the sophisticated cuisine at Sorn is inspired by the chef's southern Thai upbringing, fusing vibrant native ingredients with the revival of long-lost recipes and techniques.

Set at the breathtaking pinnacle of Grand Lisboa Hotel in Macau, French gastronomic institution, Robuchon Au Dome by Julien Tongourian claims the 3rd ranking on this year's OAD Asia Top 100+ list. The late Joel Robuchon's Macau outpost boasts quintessential French fine dining and one of the best wine menus in Asia.

"Opinionated About Dining works a little differently from other restaurant award schemes. Understanding that not all opinions are made the same, we add further factors such as reviewer level for increased accuracy in compiling the final results," says founder Steve Plotnicki. "I would like to congratulate the chefs and restaurants that have been chosen for this year's Top 100+ Asia 2020 list, and likewise, look forward to all the great culinary experiences this new year will bring."
