No Indian restaurant has made it to the list as of 2021. However, there is an interesting and surprising Indian connection to restaurant number 20, DiverXO. Helmed by chef Dabiz Munoz, the eatery is located in Madrid, Spain. The 12-course menu served at the restaurant is inspired by the cuisines of Asia, and in fact, one of the dishes has kept the shores of Goa in mind! Chef Munoz has prepared a dish named 'Galician lobster waking up on the beaches of Goa' which features a lobster head vindaloo cooked using Tandoori cooking processes and complemented with sushi rice. The dish is said to be a work of art on the plate!
Two Indian restaurants, however, have been featured in the list of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants. Delhi's Indian Accent is at number 18, while Masque, Mumbai is at number 32 in the list. We hope to see many more Indian eateries getting global recognition in the future!
