The restaurant industry is not for the faint of heart. Given the growing interest and diversifying taste of diners though, there is always opportunity for a budding restaurateur to pique your curiosity and hold your taste buds (and bellies) in thrall. We all have our favorites and we all know one or two wildcards that we recommend to everyone we meet if they’re feeling adventurous. So as a food blogger—or simply as a fellow curious eater—we’d like to know what everyone else likes.
This is why Our Awesome Planet and the Blogger Collective known as the KTG (Kain Tulog Gang) have partnered to conduct the first ever People’s Choice for Favourite Food, Restaurants, Bars, and more. Simply put, “The Choice”.
And we’d love to know what YOU like. Just click on this link to answer the survey. It will just take a few minutes! At the end of the survey, you will be asked where you found out about the survey. Just select lynne-enroute because we’ll be raffling off GCs to restaurants like Chilli’s and Perfect Pint for those who voted from this site. (Raffle is open to Metro Manila residents only.)
The journey to the Top Tens showed that, while a love for food and drink is a common denominator, our tastes are still varied. We feel that the selection is a good representation of our Metro Manila favorites.
However, we’d like to emphasize that this is NOT a “Best of…” list. Our good friends and respected colleagues from The MBKRS are doing an excellent job of recognizing the restaurants and restaurateurs in their prestigious bi-annual awards.
The MBKRS are rightly regarded as the Oscars of our ever growing foodie community. So we’d like “The Choice” to be the Golden Globes~ a bit more irreverent, surely less formal, and yes, it ought to be greatly biased. After all, YOU will be voting for your favorites, this is YOUR CHOICE!!!
