Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants has announced Toyo Eatery in Manila as the 2018 recipient of the Miele One To Watch Award. Selected by the organisers of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, in collaboration with its regional experts, the Miele One To Watch Award is presented to a restaurant that is outside the Asia’s 50 Best list but is identified as the rising star of the region.
Toyo Eatery’s owner-chef Jordy Navarra will formally accept the honour at the sixth annual Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants awards, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, on 27th March 2018, in Macao.
“As Toyo Eatery approaches its second anniversary, this award is the gift we never saw coming,” explains Navarra. “Being granted the Miele One To Watch Award by such a respected authority is an amazing honour. Toyo Eatery is still in its infancy and we still have much to do, but we’re inspired to learn from the chefs whose restaurants are included in the list of Asia’s 50 Best.”
“Toyo Eatery impresses us by taking inspiration from everyday local ingredients and recipes and bringing them to the level of culinary excellence with passion, expertise and a progressive approach,” says Mario Miranda, Regional Managing Director Asia at Miele. “This same attitude involving constant improvement and innovation are part of Miele’s ‘Immer Besser’ brand philosophy. We are honoured to present this year’s Miele One To Watch Award to Jordy Navarra and the team of Toyo Eatery.”
Miele will also present #50BestTalks on Monday, 26th March, 2018 at the Grand Ballroom, Wynn Macau from 10am until 1.15pm. Under the theme ‘Exploring Identity’, the half-day forum will feature provocative discussions, inspiring presentations and live interviews with Asia’s leading chefs.
