Hail, No. 39!
Felicitations are in order: Just yesterday - and much like Leo DiCaprio’s hugely anticipated win—the acclaimed fine dining restaurant, Gallery Vask found itself on the receiving end of a very prestigious award and subsequently, a slew of much-deserved albeit impending accolades above and beyond the discerning realms within the archipelago (read: destination dining).
Gallery Vask now ranks 39th on the List of Asia’s Best Restaurants as nominated and awarded by San Pellegrino and Acqua Panna. Of course, kudos goes to the Spanish chef, Jose Luis “Chele” Gonzalez, who has ingeniously elevated and brought indigenous flavours to the international fore. The chef, who comes from Torrelavega, Spain has beautifully transitioned the Gallery Vask bill of fare from one with a delightful inclination to Spanish gastronomy to a wonderful exploration and expression of Filipino cuisine.
Congratulations once again chef Gonzalez for putting Filipino cuisine on the global map as well to Gallery Vask owner, Carlo Calma.
