Our top 20 awardee by Danny Yip shines bright at this year's announcement in Singapore

For the first time, World’s 50 Best Restaurants has landed in Singapore, just three months after its Asian edition concluded in Macau last March. The academy announced this year’s 51st to 120th placement list last week, which included a few local favourites, and we are just as pleased to spot one familiar name from the local dining scene in the top 50 as well.

Celebrating the heritage of Cantonese cuisine, our Top 20 Best Restaurants awardee The Chairman ranked 41st on this year’s list. Opened in 2009 by Danny Yip, with the kitchen team led by chef de cuisine Tung Kwok-Keung, the esteemed restaurant works closely with local ingredients to evolve vintage recipes and recreate nostalgic dishes that are often simple but difficult to perfect.
