Diners' Choice Awards

Diners were invited to nominate and vote their favourites from February 10th to March 22nd, 2015.  33,759 votes were cast over 34 days, starting on February 17, in celebration of Chinese New Year. This is a whopping 42% increase over the 2014 result of 19,612 votes over 30 days.  Now, the 2015 Diners' Choice Awards result is finally revealed. All votes were vertified by EY Canada, the official auditor of the Awards.
-----------------
For 2015, the categories of Diners’ Choice Awards have expanded from 20 to 21, including five new awards: Best Har Gow, Best Five Spiced Beef wrapped in Chinese Pancake, Best Tea-smoked Duck, Best Three-cup Chicken and Best Original-Flavour Egg Waffles. Each new dish category was again decided based on the dish’s reputation as being popular or as a staple dish in a particular region in China. These were added to the categories to encourage the dining public’s interest in finding the restaurant that excels in making a signature dish. And, with many diners' written request, the Best BBQ Shop is back to the awards categories. Your enthusiastic participation of the annual Diners' Choice Awards for the Metro Vancouver Region has inspired the changes every year. This year, the Awards have invited four top-ranking local food bloggers for the newly introduced Food Bloggers' Choice Awards to dissect five dishes in the new categories with you. Together with the Awards team of professional food critics and you, the food bloggers will create a new comprehensive dining guide.
