STA, 26 June 2019 - Hiša Franko in the town of Kobarid, led by Slovenia's star chef Ana Roš, was declared the 38th best restaurant in the world by the British trade magazine Restaurant in Singapore on Tuesday. The list was topped by French restaurant Mirazur led by Argentinian chef Mauro Colagreco.
This is the second time that Hiša Franko, standing above the picturesque Soča river, is on the list of the world's top 50 restaurants.
It debuted last year, ranking 48th, while Roš was declared the best woman chef by the Restaurant magazine in 2017.
Overall, the top 50 list included just five restaurants helmed by female chefs, the same as last year.
Mirazur is followed on the list by Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark, and Asador Etxebarri in Atxondo, Spain.
