The Miele Guide is a project of Aun Koh (Chubby Hubby ) and wife S. from Singapore. The Miele Guide aims to be Asia’s first truly independent regional restaurant guide. The Miele Guide will evaluate restaurants in 16 Asian countries—Brunei, Cambodia, China (including Hong Kong and Macau), India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

This project came about as most restaurant guides are western-centric. The Miele Guide will put together a list of the best restaurants from the region. In the first round, the restaurants are shortlisted by Asia’s top restaurant critics. The second round of evaluation depends on our participation so vote now!

Just take note that a visa card is required to register. Upon registration, the form requires the first six digits of your visa card. Some people might get apprehensive about this but it should be safe as it’s only the first six digits.

Voting is open from now until July 31, 2008 at

In the Philippines, I voted for Lolo Dad’s, Antonio’s and Cafe Juanita. What’s your vote?
