Time Out KL Food Awards 2010

Cilantro Friday lunch's salad of summer seafood drizzled with ohba vinaigrette

The Time Out KL awards are back for their second year. Announced in their August issue, the awards work on a two step basis. Step one starts with everyone nominating their favourites from now until 15 September. Subsequently, step two involves another round of voting on October 1. This time, one must pick a winner among the top five nominees from each category (there's 14 categories from Chinese, Indian, Italian, Malay and etc to keep you busy). Winners will then be announced in their December issue. This year, I noticed they had dropped the burger category and there's a mamak/hawker category so those humble food operators get to finally shine.

Last year, I made a fuss about some of the nominees as I deemed them to be an unfair selection since some very good restaurants failed to make the cut. In order to avoid this from happening again, I reckon the only way is to spread the word around so more discerning people would vote for those that are worthy. Of course, there's no full proof method to prevent a skewed list but rather than sit back and gripe about it, I should do my part by highlighting the awards this year.

So, go forth my dear blog readers...be responsible citizens of KL. Cast your vote for truly good restaurants, mamaks and hawker stalls that deserve this accreditation. Click on this link and start voting. I'm crossing my fingers (and toes) it'll be a list of winners that we will be proud of.

Pssst, the pictures are a selection from Cilantro, which serves these amazing Friday lunch sets, and should of course be in the running for the awards. Initially when it re-opened, I must admit I thought Cilantro was a little off the mark, but their Friday lunches have restored my faith that they have now found their groove just like Stella.
