Recently published are two diners’ choice awards: Golden Plates Awards and the Chinese Restaurant Awards. You may not agree with what other diners picked, but hey, we all have an opinion don’t we? That’s how the whole food blogging “business” started anyways.

Golden Plates Awards

Voted by readers of the Georgia Straight, 2010 marks the 13th year of this annual program. Readers can vote in six categories which are further broken down into small groups and by geographical locations. Winners include Maenam for Best New West Side and Best Thai, Chambar for Best Atmosphere, Best Continental, and Best Pre-Theatre Restaurant, Japadog for Best Hot Dog Vendor, Blue Water Café for Best Seafood and Best Fish, and Thomas Haas for Best Bakery (Pastries).

For a list of award winners, visit Georgia Straight’s website.

Chinese Restaurant Awards

The 2nd annual Chinese Restaurant Awards include two components: Critics’ Choice Signature Dish Awards and Diners’ Choice Awards. For the latter component, winners include Empire Chinese Cuisine for Best Cantonese Dim Sum and Congee Noodle House for Best Congee Restaurant (Mr. and I have been there a few times for the last several months).

Visit their website for the list of winners in both programs.

Now, how many of the winning restaurants have you visited?

Happy eating,
Joyce
