Time Out KL Food Awards 2012







The Time Out Kuala Lumpur Food Awards took place in November at Zebra Square on a very wet and stormy weekday night. Despite all that, there was such a great turn-up the event. I got there around 11 with Raj as we were at Matrade attending BDA Fashion Show earlier on that night.

With the toasts of champagne and food samples from the nominated restaurants and cafes, Time Out revealed the winners of altogether 20 categories that night from more than 50,000 votes cast. Now in its fourth year, the 100% reader voted awards involve more Malaysians than any other food event in the country, and there was a mix of new faces and old favorites among the winners.

So here's the list of winners from the awards night. Any of your fave eateries made it on the list?
