Gallery Vask, the Philippines’ best restaurant in 2016, made it to the list of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants and ranked 39.

Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants described the cuisine in Gallery Vask, the only Philippine restaurant in the list, as modern Spanish with a Filipino twist.

Its stand out dishes are Tiradito of raw tuna loin, kinilaw gel with coconut milk, calamansi, and tabon-tabon. Its menu is built around the philosophy of using native Philippine produce in innovative dishes.

Its chef, Jose Luis “Chele” Gonzalez, is from northern Spain and has a culinary degree from Arxanda. He opened Gallery Vask with architect and artist Juan Carlo Calma.

Its signature plate includes adlai, a local cereal that government is currently promoting, that is is served with bagoong paste and sea urchin, pigeon, and gotu kola hearts.

Its degustation menu are the alamat, a long version, and the lakbay, a reduced course option. The alamat has 16 plates from its signature sour ribs to a sticky rice and mango dessert it calls buen viaje or good journey.

Gallery Vask, which seats only 20, is also an art space that changes constantly depending on the Filipino art that Calma showcases.
