Foodies!!! Are You Ready for 'The Choice'?

Do you notice that every month, every week, and almost every day it seems, there's a new restaurant opening in Metro Manila? There are a lot of great new dining choices, side by side with the perennials and the classics that we grew up with. As food bloggers, writers, and members of the F&B industry, we're always very curious about the crowd favoritesThe popular vote, if you will. 

So, it is with great pride and pleasure to share with you that Our Awesome Planet and the Blogger Collective known as the KTG (Kain Tulog Gang) have partnered to conduct the first ever People's Choice for their Favorite Food, Restaurants, Bars, and more~ or simply, 'The Choice'.

About 'The  Choice'
We conducted an intense first round of voting among ourselves, and our resulting Top Tens have made us very pleased:  we feel it's a very diverse and fair representation of all our Metro Manila favorites. The categories are very broad, as they should be in a democratic vote
However, we'd like to emphasize that this is NOT a "Best of..." list. Our good friends and respected colleagues from The MBKRS (or Manila's Best Kept Restaurant Secrets) are doing an excellent job of recognizing the restaurants and restaurateurs in their prestigious bi-annual awards.
The MBKRS are rightly regarded as the Oscars of our ever growing foodie community. So we'd like 'The Choice' to be the Golden Globes ~ a bit more irreverent, surely less formal, and yes, it ought to be greatly biased. After all, YOU will be voting for your favorites, this is YOUR CHOICE!!!

The Survey Parameters
1. For the Favorite New Restaurant category, our coverage period includes restaurants that opened between May 1, 2014 to April 30, 2015.

2. For the Favorite Out-of-Town Destination, the restaurants must be reached by land in 5 hours; thanks to the TPLex, that includes Baguio!
3. There are 45 questions in this survey and answering this survey should take around 5-10 minutes. It is best to give a definitive answer on each question and feel free to skip if you can't decide.
4. All answers are treated confidential and final once you click on the submit button. One survey response for one person only.
5. Please give us your name and email address for our random validation of the survey responses.

About The KTG
The KTG is a group of friends who all just happen to be some of the top food bloggers in the Philippines; every one of their individual blogs ranks among the highest ranking and most influential online publications dedicated to food, entertainment, and travel.
The KTG is composed of some of the more senior food bloggers in the country, including Richie Zamora of 'The Pickiest Eater in the World', and Richard Co of 'Tales from the Tummy'. Representing the younger generation are 'The Hefty Foodie', 'The Food Scout', and me, aka 'Nines vs. Food'! And from the world of showbiz, Mr. Chuckie Dreyfus, a foodie who's also a respected tech blogger.
The KTG's objectives are not limited to discovering the best restaurants, however. While it's affectionately called the "Kain Tulog Gang", it's officially participated in relief efforts in Tacloban and Iloilo after Yolanda; and in Metro Manila, this "Kapatiran sa Tulong at Ginhawa" is on a constant mission to contribute in providing joy and comfort to the less fortunate. Simply put, to be a part of KTG is about supporting one another, helping others in many ways, and most especially, celebrating our utmost passion for food!
