Coming in at #50 on the list and the sole Bali restaurant to make the perstigious list is Mozaic Restaurant Gastronomique of Ubud, adding another award to its growing litany of accolades, including its recent hallowed return inclusonon the Miele Guide’s listing of outstanding dining establishments.
In naming Bali to the list of 50 best Asian restaurants, San Pellegrino cited the key role played by Mozaic’s founder, chef Chris Salans, saying, “Salans has not only built Mozaic into Bali’s finest restaurant, but has made it a genuine global gastronomic destination.”
In response, chef owner Chris Salans replied: “I am thrilled to see Mozaic listed on the Best 50 restaurants list and being bestowed the honor of the best Indonesia. Our team is over the moon with this privilege. I hope to see more Indonesia on the list in the next few years, because we have great chefs here, and fantastic fresh ingredients to inspire us.”
