Returning to his country of birth, Chiang is now at Raw — one of Taipei’s hottest restaurants since it opened in 2014. Chiang now plans to spend more time at Raw and to set up a platform for aspiring Taiwanese chefs. He’s joined at Raw by two fellow chefs: Zor Tan Cheong Thin and Alain Huang. The eye-catching dining room features floor-to-ceiling glass windows, with its enormous wooden sculpture assembled from blocks of Taiwanese pine. All dishes are based on a few simple ingredients, carefully selected according to the island’s 24 ‘micro-seasons,’ so courses may include crispy noodle, wasabi peas and spicy soy bean; mahogany, sumo miso and water lotus, or the single-themed pig ear, pig cheek and pig tail. The drinks list includes a number French biodynamic wines handpicked by chef Chiang to pair with his dishes.Other restaurants in Taiwan in the Top 50 list:Mume, Taipei (No. 18)Shoun RyuGin (No. 47) INDONESIAImage credit: LocavoreLocavoreJalan Dewi SitaUbud, BaliEuropean-Indonesian with local ingredientsLocavore is all about local, from the raw Balinese abalone to the Sumbawa Island oyster, and even through to the plates, silverware and cocktail glasses, which are all locally made. Guests can choose from the ‘locavore’ or the vegetarian ‘herbivore’ option;  each is five to seven dishes long and influenced by European and Indonesian cuisines. Plates might include fermented dadap leaves with long bean lawar, bumbu Bali and crispy amaranth leaves; or ‘Are they really called stinky beans…?’ with petai, caramelised green tomato, fermented shiitake mushroom and fermentation juice. The signature dish is considered to be ‘Into the Sawah’. The menu lists the origins of all its ingredients, so diners can see the kohlrabi comes from the restaurant’s vegetable garden in Payangan or the pickled seaweed from Lombok.The restaurant is run by Eelke Plasmeijer, a Dutch-born chef who moved to Jakarta in 2008; and fellow head chef Ray Adriansyah, who was born in Jakarta to Sumatran parents. They previously ran the kitchen at Alila Ubud before opening Locavore with restaurant manager Adi Karmayasa in November 2013. THAILANDImage credit: GagganGaggan 68/1 Soi Langsuan, Ploenchit RoadLumpini, BangkokProgressive Indian cuisineChef Gaggan Anand, born in Kolkata, is well known in the culinary world for his vivacious personality and dishes that push boundaries. His Bangkok restaurant, opened in 2010, has reimagined the notion of ‘progressive Indian cuisine’. It was voted Number one in the 2018 list and has therefore taken out the title of ‘Best Restaurant in Asia’. He also runs a burger and beer restaurant Meatlicious and is launching natural wine bar Wet and tofu restaurant Mihara Tofuten in 2018. The 25-course menu at Gaggan is writeen entirely in emojis, beginning with a series of snacks including the spherified Yoghurt Explosion, and moves to a long sequence of courses including Indian sushi, charcoal prawn Amritsari and uni ice cream in a miniature cone. At the end of the meal, guests are presented with a version of a menu that contains the names of the dishes. Anand’s latest signature dish ‘Lick it up’ is served in time with the song by legendary rock band Kiss. Made with green peas, fenugreek, mushroom and tomato, the dish is designed to be ‘licked up’ directly from the plate – the flavours are layered to touch the tongue exactly where the different taste receptors are placed. An extensive cocktail list is worth sampling.Other restaurants in Thailand in the Top 50 list:Sühring, Bangkok (No. 4)Nahm, Bangkok (No. 10)Le Du, Bangkok (No. 14)Paste, Bangkok (No. 31)Eat Me, Bangkok (No. 33)Bo.Lan, Bangkok (No. 37)Issaya Siamese Club, Bangkok (No. 39)The Dining Room at The House on Sathorn, Bangkok (No. 43) asiabaliBangkokBest Restaurants AsiaChinaFine dining AsiaHong KongindiaIndonesiaJapanKoreaSeoulSingaporeSri LankaTaipeiTaiwanthailandTokyoUbudlast_img read more
