Time Out KL Food Awards 2011 Winners and Results

It was a great evening with free flow champagne, wine, beer and finger food in KL Pac Sentul for the Time Out KL Food Awards 2011. This was my first time attending the award show after missing the first few.

Interesting enough, this year’s nominees for the awards are broader than previous years. There are hawkers to fine dining restaurants and it is interesting to know who will prevail as winners.

On top of having a great time there, we were also delighted to see old friends and we did a lot of catch up there. There were also a number of familiar faces from restaurant owners and media friends.

  1. fuiyoh boss u were there? haha I wasnt 😛

    Kind of suprise to see the Fatty Crab appear to be the winner. (Maybe other people keep on nominate Fatty Crab, no surprise)

  2. Wow, been seeing the Fatty Crab restaurant so many times, but yet to go give them a try. And them winning an award simply means it’s a must try location for seafood.
