Chinese Restaurant Awards’Vancouver Winners

Best Peking Duck: Chang’an, Vancouver

The 10th annual Chinese Restaurant Awards’ coveted Diners’ Choice Awards have been chosen.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Chinese Restaurant Awards, which were founded in 2008 to recognize high quality Chinese and Taiwanese cuisine in Vancouver. Central to the annual celebration is the highly-anticipated Diners’ Choice Awards, presented by Hong Kong Airlines. Voting took place from February 5 – March 4 online and on WeChat and was available in both English, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese. 35,219 votes were cast over the four week voting period and excitement was readily shared over social media.

The winners of the 2018 Diners’ Choice Awards will be compiled into a new comprehensive diners’ guide, which locals and visitors alike rely on to find the best regional Chinese and Taiwanese cuisine in Metro Vancouver. Many new restaurants were selected as winners this year, reflecting diners’ appetite for fresh tastes and appreciation of new cuisines.

Highlights from this year’s awards include the winners of the four new dish categories, as well as the much-desired Best New Restaurant award:

Best Peking Duck: Chang’an, Vancouver

Best Shanghainese Stir Fry Egg White: Suhang Restaurant, Richmond

Best Sichuan Mouthwatering Chicken: Szechuan House, Burnaby

Best Spring Rolls: Prince Chinese Seafood Restaurant, Vancouver
