Theworlds50best has just announced the full list of Asia’s 100 best restaurants, including 2 Vietnamese representatives.

It is extremely surprising when both are not luxury restaurants in 5-star hotels. HCMC’s Anan Saigon and Hanoi’s T.U.N.G. Dining came in at No. 38 and No. 98, respectively. It is also the first time since Don’s in Hanoi had made this list at No. 47.

Anan Saigon is led by Chef Peter Cuong Franklin – a Vietnamese-born chef who was well trained in world-renowned culinary schools.

The restaurant serves both traditional Vietnamese menu and mixed-cultural cuisine such as Da Lat pizza, tacos-Vietnamese crepes or Quang noodles, etc.
