Verbena Makes It To Miele Guide Part 2

The prestigious Miele Guide, considered by many as the most authoritative restaurant guide in Asia has unveiled its third edition to a star-studded crowd comprised of top chefs, restaurateurs, food critics and journalists in the region  at the Grand Hyatt City of Dreams in Macau recently. For the second straight year, Restaurant Verbena of Discovery Country Suites makes it to the list as one of Asia’s finest restaurants.  An added distinction to Verbena’s sophomore inclusion is its No. 2 ranking in its list of Top 5 restaurants  in the Philippines.

The latest edition also favored other restaurants from the Discovery hotel group. 22 Prime, the steak specialty restaurant located on the 22nd floor of Discovery Suites makes it to this year’s list.   The restaurant is a two-time “Best Steakhouse” winner in the annual Goldspot Awards conducted by popular website Spot.Ph.  It was also nominated as Best Fine Dining Restaurant in the Manila’s Best Kept Secrets (MBKS) 2010 Awards. 

Also making its Miele Guide debut is Indigo Restaurant, an upscale beachfront restaurant located in Discovery Shores Boracay that offers contemporary coastal cuisine.
