Asia's 50 Best Restaurants 2021

The Chairman restaurant in Hong Kong has been crowned Best Restaurant in Asia during Asia's 50 Best Restaurants' virtual awards ceremony, sponsored by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna.

This is the first time a Chinese restaurant has topped the list. Chef Kwok Keung Tung is known for his original ingredient-led cooking and contemporary Cantonese cuisine. His signature dish is steamed flowery crab made with 15-year-old Chinese wine, chicken fat and claim juice, served alongside fragrant chicken oil and flat rice noodles.

Julien Royer's French-inspired restaurant Odette in Singapore fell to number two after two years in the top spot, and chef Zaiyu Hasegawa’s Den restaurant in Tokyo held strong at number three for another year.
