Asia Miles Launches Third Annual Members’ Choice 2019 Awards
We all have an opinion on our favourite places to eat. 2019 has seen a lengthy list of exciting new restaurants representing a huge variety of cuisines and points of view—and this month, Asia Miles officially launches the third edition of their Members’ Choice Awards featuring the year’s cream of the crop. From now until 15 November, Asia Miles members can cast their votes to collect stars, which will increase their chances of winning one of the series of enticing prizes. The members with the highest amount of stars in their balance will be among those selected for rewards, from 1,000 or 10,000 Asia Miles to the ultimate grand prize: an exclusive culinary experience in Japan for two people, exploring hidden gems and local favourites as curated by T.Dining.
Three simple steps will put you in the running for these incredible rewards, the first being to vote for your three favourite restaurants to earn your first three stars (voting before October 15 will earn you an extra three stars). Second, you can share your unique code with friends and family to invite them to vote—every referral will win one star for both parties, and each member can collect up to 40 stars using this method. Third, dine to your heart’s content—members can continue to collect stars by eating at 350+ Asia Miles Partner Restaurants during the voting period, and from here on the sky is the limit when it comes to how many stars you can collect.
Like before, the nominated restaurants have been organised into six distinct categories highlighting their unique characteristics—from places rated as the finest venues for romantic tete-a-tetes to convivial eateries members would return to time and time again with their family and friends. For 2019, there are 120 restaurants competing across the categories. Take a look below at some of the T.Dining-rated restaurants that made the cut in each category before casting your votes here:
Among the nominees is Caprice, a T.Dining Top 20 Restaurant and clear choice for those looking for one of the most luxurious dining experiences in town. Other notable nominees include Rech by Alain Ducasse, Italian specialist Gradini at The Pottinger Hotel, and newcomer Silencio.
A few of our favourites for bringing the family together have been nominated here, from InterContinental’s signature buffet restaurant Harbourside to elegant Cantonese restaurants Tin Lung Heen at The Ritz-Carlton and Yan Toh Heen. Hotpot hotspot Megan’s Kitchen also gets a spot in the shortlist.
These venues are known for their energy and vibe, and include Instagram-bait dim sum restaurant Yum Cha, as well as the old Central favourite, Zuma. Beef & Liberty and craft beer specialist Blue Supreme also made the cut.
Thinking of places for a special occasion? Have a look at these nominees: T.Dining Top 20 Best Restaurant Epure, where chef Nicholas Boutin impresses with his fine French cuisine, and Maze Grill—Gordon Ramsay’s latest opening in Harbour City, known for its textbook perfect beef Wellington.
The nominees in this category are a feast for the eyes—here, bars such as Dear Lilly and Dragonfly (both designed by accomplished veteran Ashley Sutton) join the list along with beautifully designed restaurants Mott 32, Madame Fu, and even beloved local cafe Teakha.
In this category, the nominees have impressed the most discerning palates with their refined food, and there is an impressive number of fine Chinese restaurants: Tang Court, Man Ho, Ming Court, Dynasty Garden and Sichuan Lab to name a few.
The campaign will run until 15 November, so there’s still time to collect your stars for your chance to win a culinary trip of a lifetime—and you get to dine out while you’re at it. For more information about the awards, please visit www.asiamiles.com
