Following weeks of painstaking nomination round voting nearly 300 of Beijing's best restaurants in over 50 categories have been selected to take part in the Beijinger's 2015 Reader Restaurant Awards! And now it's up to you to place your all-important vote!
Notable newcomers including Tribe, Country Kitchen, Palms L.A. Kitchen, The Taco Bar, and The Corner Melt made a good showing outside of the "Best New Restaurant" category this year, receiving nominations across multiple categories.
Topping the list of Western nominees are previous winners such as Mosto, TRB, Capital M, Element Fresh, MOKA Bro's, Great Leap Brewing, and Home Plate Bar-B-Que.
Meanwhile on the Chinese end of things, familiar names such as Dali Courtyard, Da Dong Roast Duck, Din Tai Fung, Duck de Chine, Haidilao, Jing Yaa Tang, and Transit garnered the most nods from this year's nominating panel.
We've also spiced it up with a few new categories, such as Best Cakes, Cookies and Pastries, Best Overseas Import, Best Ramen, and – my personal favorite – Food Entrepreneur of the Year, honoring those small businesses who are giving it their all to shake up Beijing's food scene.
So dig in and give a helping hand to all your favorite venues – voting is open until the beginning of March so there's plenty of time to try before you vote – you'll always be able to find a link to the ballot on the homepage of thebeijinger.com.
