There’s a total of 36 members per region, and each of them can vote for 7 restaurants. At least 3 of these should be restaurants outside their jurisdiction. This year, restaurants in Singapore evidently made an impact on these judges for out of the 50 slots, 10 came from our country. Curious to know which these are? Here’s the list:
