Time Out KL Food Awards 2012

The Time Out KL Food Awards 2012 was held at Zebra Square in KL. It was a wet, wet night and the turn out might have been better, had it not rained cats and dogs all evening. But nevermind, we all had a great time, mingling with restaurateurs, chefs and friends alike, while sipping on champagne.

Starting in July 2012, TOKL readers were invited to nominate their favourite restaurants and candidates across 19 categories. Then in mid September, they narrowed down the nominations into a shortlist and opened up for one final round of voting. The poll closed on Oct 31, and the results of the Time Out KL Food Awards 2012 were revealed at a glitzy award ceremony event at Zebra Square KL.
