Georgia Straight Reader’s Choice Golden Plate Awards 2013

Yesterday the Georgia Straight announced the restaurant winners for the reader’s choice Golden Plate Awards 2013. The winners were selected through an online vote earlier this year.

Golden Plate Awards

I’m not generally a fan of readers choice awards, as I find the winners are often the same throughout the years or  I don’t agree with the choices at all. Chain restaurants also seem to dominate just because they are familiar household names. I died a bit inside when I saw McDonald’s and Swiss Chalet on the list.

That being said, I am happy to see some deserving restaurants on the list, like Tap & Barrel, who placed in the top three for best restaurant patio and best restaurant to hang out on a sunny day.

You can view the complete list of categories and the winners on the Georgia Straight website.

    Most of the restaurants on this list are not representative of the local, well-made, budget friendly places where I prefer to dine. I’m more of a Guy Fieri type of diner and I prefer to suss out the small independent places that focus on comfort food made with love.

    Perhaps, this type of list would appeal to tourists or people who have a lot of money to throw around?
