Vote for your favourite restaurants on The Miele Guide 2010
Attention all foodies!!! It’s election time again...not for politicians but for the best restaurants across Asia.
I have been on the panel of the Miele Guide since 2009. When I first joined it, I realised that the choice of restaurants was skewed. I hoped to correct the balance with joining the panel. Since 2008 the Miele Guide has been growing as a source for information on the best restaurants to dine at in 18 countries across Asia - Brunei, Cambodia, China (including Hong Kong and Macau), India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. Every year the team at Miele guide carry out a survey and voting in a systematic four round process to make a comprehensive list of Asia’s best restaurants.
In the first round a panel of Asia’s top food critics shortlist the best restaurants. The second and third rounds are carried out simultaneously online where the public, professionals from the food industry and prominent foodies are invited to cast their votes. And in the fourth round the team members across Asia pay mystery visits to the highest ranked restaurants to confirm the annual ranking of Asia’s top 20.
The public voting for 2010/2011 will be open from 10th March to 19th May 2010. So all you foodies out there go to www.mieleguide.com and cast your votes to see your favourite restaurants on the list. Before you do that here are a few points you should keep in mind while casting your votes:
(1) The quality of the food served
(2) The ambiance of the restaurant
(3) The level of service offered.
Remember this guide is a reflection of the taste of Asian foodies all over!
PS: The Miele Guide application for iphone and ipod touch is now available at the apple app store. It is a must have for all foodies in Asia or travelling to Asia.
