SINGAPORE (Reuters Life!) - The Miele Guide to Asia's finest restaurants is written by food experts who know and love the region (www.mieleguide.com).

1. Pierre Gagnaire a Seoul

Champagne as aperitifs and several courses of amuse bouche - such are the little luxuries that precede a meal at the feted Pierre Gagnaire a Seoul. For his Korean outpost, Gagnaire incorporates Korean ingredients to his modern, innovative French cuisine to yield dishes such as grilled beef tenderloin with abalone and pepper, shallot compote and Chinese quince, and beef tartar and consomme jelly with sesame seeds. Conventional course sets are turned deliciously on their heads, as guests might find themselves enjoying dessert or soup in the middle of their meal.
