The Wandering Palate Restaurant of the Year 2013 – The Quality Chop House, Farringdon Road, London

The Wandering Palate Restaurant of the Year 2013 – The Quality Chop House, Farringdon Road, LondonAdmittedly, arriving at the ‘Wandering Palate Restaurant of the Year’ is essentially informed subjectivism; there is no avoiding the emotional and mental reactions of the individual; you will simply have to trust my palate and meta-ethics. This recognition is also a statement of where I see certain dining trends are heading and how the proprietors…

The Wandering Palate – Best Meal of the Year 2013 – Martin Bosley’s Yacht Club Restaurant, Wellington, New Zealand

You might say I'm getting in a bit early on the 'Best of the Year' accolades but I have that unnerving feeling that if you blink, it will be Christmas.

The Wandering Palate Restaurant of the Year – Brasserie Gavroche, Paris-Singapore

It might be ageing or just over-exposure but I now much prefer wholesome dishes; unadulterated seafood, grills, rotisseries, slow roasts, casseroles and ‘nose to tail eating’ - simple cooking with exemplary produce. Such a subjective predilection is perhaps not the sort of prejudice that a food commentator should have, but that’s what it is. Besides…

The Wandering Palate Best New Restaurant of the Year – Brooks, Melbourne

Man, this is one slick restaurant and pushing the boundaries of dining in Australia to new limits. It’s quirky, old-fashioned, cutting-edge contemporary, old-clubby, new groovy, moody, bright white-linen, cosy, edgy all rolled into one! The juxtaposition of the menu sets the pace, on the one hand a science lab of cooking technique and visual presentation,…

Best Winery Restaurant of the Year – Carrick, Bannockburn, Central Otago, New Zealand

Most achieve a level of food quality adequate to the task of providing some sustenance for the purpose of soaking up the wine and there are times when a fairly straightforward platter of cold cuts, pates and cheese will do the job adequately, or even taste immeasurably good in the surrounds. Few winery restaurants however…

The Wandering Palate Best Asian Restaurant of the Year

The Wandering Palate Best Asian Restaurant of the YearI coined Australian freestyle cuisine when I first started visiting Asia many moons ago, however began using it in conversation a lot more when I actually moved to Hong Kong, some 13 years ago and came to the realisation that the best contemporary Asian food and fun dining was in fact in Australia, which is…
