Singapore is represented on yet another international awards list - The World's 50 Best Restaurants. The awardees are evaluated by a panel of over a thousand culinary experts, and features a diverse and global culinary landscape

Here are the 4 best-ranked restaurants in Singapore according to The World's 50 Best Restaurants that have made their mark in this year's top 100 rankings.

#95 Meta

Short for metamorphosis, One-Michelin-starred Meta is representative of the ever-changing F&B industry, as well as its culinary team’s evolutionary approach to the menu.

At the restaurant, dishes and flavour combinations are reinterpreted to reflect Chef Sun Kim’s experiences. Combining his Korean heritage, Japanese culinary techniques, and Western culinary training, Meta presents innovative and well-balanced dishes that utilise the best seasonal produce and ingredients from around the globe.

#94 Burnt Ends

Founded by Chef-Owner Dave Pynt, Burnt Ends is a modern barbecue restaurant in Singapore’s Dempsey Hill serving modern Australian barbecue and boutique wines and spirits in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.

At the heart of this modern barbecue restaurant is an open-concept kitchen with a custom four-tonne, dual cavity oven and four elevation grills. Burnt Ends writes new menus daily and believes that there is magic that comes from cooking with wood.

#70 Zen

Zén is the Singapore stablemate of the much-vaunted Stockholm restaurant Frantzén – hence the name – which features prominently on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list.

Expect a procession of exquisite dishes including the likes of grilled turbot and razor clams served with goat’s butter, artichoke barigoule and thyme, or scallop with buttermilk vinaigrette, cucumber, uni and coriander. The meal wouldn’t be complete without the signature ‘Grand Tradition’ French toast, followed by a delicate dessert of tea, milk and honey, with pumpkin seeds and yuba on a banana and jasmine waffle.

#36 Odette

Odette serves modern French cuisine guided by Chef Julien’s lifelong respect for seasonality, terroir and artisanal producers sourced from boutique producers all over the world. While his approach is underpinned by the principles of French cuisine, his years in Asia have infused his approach with a sense of place.

Every touchpoint has its place and purpose, carefully considered in service of delivering indelible experiences paired with thoughtful hospitality.
