The Aristocrat Ranks 108th in World’s 150 Most Legendary Restaurants

The Aristocrat, one of the oldest homegrown restaurants in the Philippines, made it to the food and drink guide TasteAtlas’s list of the 150 most legendary restaurants in the world. Ranking 108th, the restaurant is the only Filipino restaurant included in the list.

In curating the list, TasteAtlas explains that the restaurants included are “not just places to grab a meal, but destinations in their own right, comparable to the world’s most famous museums, galleries, and monuments.” The Aristocrat has been serving Filipino favorites and well-loved snacks since 1936. Despite the changes in the Philippine culinary scene and the opening of different restaurants, it has remained relevant, with families flocking to its branches to sample its menu.

Vienna’s Figlmüller, known for its Schnitzel Wiener Art, sits in the top spot. Other famous restaurants that made it to the list are New York City’s Katz’s Delicatessen (#2), Taipei’s Din Tai Fung (#28), Japan’s Hiibiya Matsumotoro (#32), Seoul’s Woo Lae Oak (#88), and Hong Kong’s Yat Lok Restaurant (#149).

Last year, The Aristocrat’s Lumpiang Shanghai was also recognized by TasteAtlas. With the golden crispy rolls ranking second on the list of the 50 Best Street Foods in the World, the website listed those served at Aristocrat as the best followed by the Lumpiang Shanghai served in Baguio’s Good Taste and Marikina’s Luyong Restaurant.
