The 50 Best website noted in the citation that it prioritizes Filipino people and produce, fostering long-term relationships with local farmers and artisans.

It presents local ingredients in modern ways, playing with fermentation and preservation techniques to create a bold palate of flavors, it added.

Toyo Eatery, whose name is based on the Filipino word for soy sauce, placed 42nd in the Asia’s 50 Best List 2023.

It was also named the Philippines’ best restaurant in 2019, 2021, and 2023.

The 50 Best website said its menus are scattered with references to popular culture and elevated by clever plays on flavor and texture. 

Its signature dishes include gourmet pork barbecue skewers made with three cuts of meat and finished in bone broth, as well as a salad referencing Bahay Kubo.
