The Chinese Restaurant Awards Association, a Metro Vancouver-based Chinese cuisine promoter, on Wednesday celebrated 50 signature dishes and 45 favourable restaurants selected from hundreds of competitors in this area, reportedly the best place outside China for Chinese dining.

In a grand awards ceremony, the non-profit organization unveiled 50 winners for the Critics' Choice Signature Dish Awards, with which Chinese Restaurant Awards reward Chinese restaurants. The dishes were divided into 25 categories, spanning everything from dim sum, noodle to congee, beef, duck, hot pot and vegetarian dishes, each with a gold and a silver award.

They have been chosen anonymously by a panel of Chinese food critics with Chinese or Caucasian background, who seek out restaurants recommended by word of mouth or by the reputation of the chef.

As another feature of Chinese Restaurant Awards, the Diners' Choice Awards went to 45 Chinese restaurants, which were the results of nearly 10,000 diners voting online. The 15 first place winners and the other 30 2nd and 3rd place most voted restaurants fill 15 categories, which honour excellence in the bests of Taiwanese cafe, Hong Kong style cafe, congee house, noodle house, hotpot fare, vegetarian cuisine, barbecue shop, bakeries, dessert place, casual dining, best service, and best dining environment. Metro Vancouver, Canada's gateway to Asian-Pacific economies, has some of the best Chinese food in the world, said Craig Stowe, the founder and director of Chinese Restaurant Awards, who eats in Chinese restaurants four times a week.

He said: " We want to make sure that everybody knows locally and internationally about the best Chinese restaurants. We are very proud to be able to showcase great Chinese food to the world."

Launched in 2009, Chinese Restaurant Awards is now regarded as an influential annual event, highlighting the unique and exciting Chinese food scene that Metro Vancouver has garnered. The awards have become the authority on Chinese food, serving as a restaurant and dining guide for local and visiting food lovers.
