Vancouver Magazine 12th Annual Restaurant Awards

The 12th Annual Restaurant Awards from Vancouver Magazine are out.

It's always interesting to see how the opinions of professional critics (who get paid to go to a restaurant more than once unlike us who do it for the love of food for nada!) compare with ours. It's a thrill akin to seeing if your Oscar picks match the academy's. Just like movies it's not important what the critics think; what's important that you go to the restaurants and movies that you like. My only quibble about these restaurant awards is that they should have a category like "best hole in the wall" for places like Hawker's Delight.

Happily lots of our favourites such as Sun Sui Wah, Lumiere, Banana Leaf, Montri and Piccolo Mondo are the same!
