Celebrity chef restaurants Waku Ghin and Osteria Mozza have been successfully placed on the inaugural “Asia‟s 50 Best Restaurants” list. Their wins were announced at a gala gathering of acclaimed chefs, restaurateurs, gourmands and industry experts at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre last night.
With its 11th spot placing, this marks the second time Waku Ghin has emerged among the region‟s best, following its debut entrance into the coveted “World‟s 50 Best Restaurants” last year. Osteria Mozza‟s 35th spot marks its debut landing in the list, which is dominated by restaurants in China, Singapore and Japan, with 16, 10 and 9 restaurants listed respectively.
For Waku Ghin, this award also comes at the back of a recent accolade – a number two ranking on The Miele Guide‟s Top 20 Restaurants in Asia 2013.
Earlier this month, Waku Ghin unveiled a full bar menu showcasing delectable dishes complemented by exquisite cocktails. The Bar at Waku Ghin is the pinnacle of refined Japanese-style cocktail making, serving over 85 handcrafted cocktails punctuated by hand-carved ice and the precision associated with Japanese mixology customs. With this, The Bar at Waku Ghin now presents a unique new epicurean experience for both regular customers as well as guests new to Waku Ghin to enjoy. At Mozza, guests can look out for its new spring/ summer cocktail menu to be released this April.
