(Vancouver, BC – February 1st, 2016) – The votes are in and the people have spoken. More than 34,100 votes were cast by eager diners for this year’s Peoples’ Choice Awards at the Chinese Restaurant Awards. The results were tabulated and audited by Jacqueline Lai, CPA.

Some of the outcomes could be considered foregone conclusions – such as the perennial winner of the ‘Best BBQ Shop’ category – Richmond’s H.K. BBQ Master, who has won the category every year since the beginning. Other returning winners include:

‘Best Cantonese Restaurant’ – Bamboo Grove, Richmond
‘Best Hunan Restaurant’ – Alvin Garden, Burnaby
‘Best Bakery Shop’ – Saint Germain Bakery with 3 locations in Metro Vancouver
‘Best Food Court Stall’ – Bubble Waffle Café with 3 locations in Metro Vancouver

There are also quite a few new names in the winners’ circle – restaurants that have opened fairly recently and have quickly become favourites – Memory Garden, Mango Yummy and Kongee Dinesty are among the first-time winners this year.

Another new aspect of this year’s awards was the introduction of ‘Iconic Dishes’ to the Diners’ Choice Awards. These are regional dishes that were chosen by our Social Media Judges because their preparation is iconic to a particular place. We asked voters to try them and engage in online discussions about the merits, history and execution of each dish and vote for their favourite interpretation of it. The response was overwhelmingly positive. People love to discuss their food and share ‘find’s and ‘faves.’ The five Iconic Dishes are:

Sichuan – Water-Boiled Fish
Taiwan – Braised Pork Rice
Hong Kong – Roast Duck (one of the most hotly debated categories)
Shanghai – Drunken Chicken
South China – Mango Sago

All the winners will be invited to the Awards Ceremony at River Rock Show Theatre on Wednesday, March 2nd. And now, the news you’ve all been waiting for, the 2016 Chinese Restaurant Awards Diners’ Choice Awards – the envelope please.
