Time Out KL Food Awards Results 2010

The results are out and I was probably the last one to blog about this. I don't care cos I'm known to be the last-minute-queen and I'm not trying to deny it!

Want to know if your favourite restaurant made it to the list?

We were greeted with endless champagne & cava. Definitely the perfect way to celebrate!

Joanne de Rozario & Will Quah are the MCs for the evening.

The Time Out KL Food Awards 2010 were officially announced at a huge celebration party at MapKL. There were about 400 chefs, restaurateurs and key industry leaders who attended the night of celebrations. Winners were chosen from shortlists in 18 categories, which were selected after an initial round of voting, so every outlet involved in the awards was chosen by real KL-ites who nominated their favourites and then selected a winner from the shortlist during a three month voting period on the website.

Here are the results derived from the votes of the readers:

Best Chinese

Babes and food. What else would you need?

What do you think about the results? There were some that I agreed to but there were some that I felt it could have been someone else. I would safely say that I have tried around 60% of these restaurants and thus my new year resolution for the coming year should be trying all of the above-mentioned outlets so that I can vote better next year!
