Mozaic, Sarong and Metis in Asia's top 20 best restaurants

Two restaurants run by French celebrity chef Joel Robuchon in Macau and Hong Kong have placed first and third in an annual poll of Asia's Top 20 fine dining establishments.

Robuchon Au Dome in Macau dislodged Singapore's Iggy's as the top restaurant in an annual guide issued by German premium kitchen appliance maker Miele.

A Singapore newcomer, Japanese chef Tatsuya Wakuda's Waku Ghin, placed second. In third place was L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon in Hong Kong, with Iggy's slipping to fourth place.

Mozaic restaurant in the Indonesian island of Bali came in fifth, up from 12th place in the last list. Another restaurant from Bali, Sarong, moved up five places to occupy the 13th spot. Metis Restaurant and Gallery, a newcomer this year from Bali as well, placed 19th.

"The man many herald as the world's greatest chef and his lieutenants in Asia have done it again," said a press statement from Miele Guide, which lists Asia's 500 best restaurants after a voting process involving industry professionals and the public.

While restaurants offering European cuisine topped the list, Asian food was well represented in the Top 20.

"Pride in Asia's cultures is a common thread seen in 2013's Top 20 list. Though progressive restaurants prevail, behind their modern facades they are often rooted in centuries-old Asian culinary history," the release said.
