BANGKOK’S GAGGAN TOPS ASIA’S 50 BEST RESTAURANTS, AGAIN

A Bangkok Indian restaurant topped the “Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants” list for a third consecutive year on Tuesday.

At an awards show held in the capital Tuesday evening, nine Bangkok restaurants found places in the “Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants” list announced, a prestigious award recognizing the best restaurants in the world.

“I had a choice today to give the most arrogant speech ever, but today I’m humbled and I wish I could break this into 50 pieces and share it with all the chefs in this room,” Gaggan said, accepting the award. “This is not for me, this is for Asia.”

After a year of anticipation, gastronomes finally know their next destinations to explore fine food as the fifth edition of the list was announced Tuesday night at the W Hotel.

The winner was, no surprise, two-time champion Gaggan Anand’s Gaggan. The progressive Indian cuisine has held the list’s top spot since 2015.
