Nights Out@Time Out KL Food Awards 2010.

Thursday, November 25, 2010


Whenever someone tells me, 'But there's nothing to do in KL!' I lean over and tell them they just don't know where to go ;) Eventhough I write fashion articles, I myself do not buy any magazines. But I pick up a copy of Time Out KL every month at the grocers religiously!

From the latest restaurants, drink promos, foreign movie screenings, book clubs and gallery exhibitions, Time Out keeps me in the know!
Explains a lot to why I'm out 5-6 nights a week, no? ;)
So come time for the Time Out Food Awards 2010, I made myself free!

A pic of the few non restauranteurs at the event held at Solaris Dutamas :)


Chocolate tube dress- 'So Haute' near Giza.

Comfy red rubber heels from Brazillian brand Melissa, Singapore.

I arrived just in time to see the event start and get a halfway decent seat.
This is obviously a disclaimer for the shoddy pics to come *dies*

Voting was done by us KL-ites and the winners/places to dine are as follow!

Best Chinese - Chynna, Hilton *How come best Chinese no pork one! :(
Best Continental - La Bodega. Specially Commended - El Cerdo, Changkat
Best Healthy Eating/Vegetarian - Marmalade *Avocado Accents Salad <3

Legal Eagle Chrystal and I taking a quickie in between awards,

Oh, did I mention Gentleman Jack was the event whiskey sponsor? :)

Guess it is to soften the blow to the restauranteurs who didn't win ;p There were so many great nominees and some of the winners just barely won.

Now back to awards!

Best Italian - Prego, Westin. *I was surprised Illido was not even nominated*
Best Japanese - Fukuharu, Terrace@ Hock Choon *Heart the ambience!*
Best Malay Restaurant - Bijan, Jalan Ceylon
Best Middle Eastern - Al Amar, Pavillion.

And you know you are at a Malaysian food award when there is a Best Hawker/'Mamak' category!!

Murni SS2 was nominated but Nasi Kandar Pelita won.

Oh well...

Now, a category I specialize in was up soon, Seafood!

Yes, I'm generally a slow eater but when it comes to crabs I'm always last to finish with a pile of crustacean carcasses piled up in front of me :)

Best Pub Grub - Jarrod & Rawlins. Specially Commended - Sid's
Best Seafood - High Tide, P.Ramlee
Best Steakhouse - Prime, Meridien.

And now for the after party in Solaris Dutamas, White Room!

Chrystal, Carliff, Sue Lynn and I get comfy :)

Usually here for exhibitions so to see the room all dressed up for the event was nice.

Culturally vamped up entertainment.
Nice one, Time Out :)

Bumped into Farena, Dani and Suzanna but had to run :(
Catch up Saturday during Mprive's next social event!

Said bye to Tom Cat Tim, Bangsar Babe Sue Lynn and Justin on the way out.
Congrats on the Fukuharu win Justin! :))

Also congrats to all the other restaurants who got nominated and won!

And check out Time Out KL to be as busy as meeeeeee!
