The inaugural Toronto Asian Food Awards 2019 celebrate the champions of the Asian cuisine

Creative Oceanic are delighted to announce the launch of the inaugural Toronto Asian Food Awards 2019.

Whether it is a freshly cooked sushi, a spicy curry or classic Indian dishes, these awards will provide a platform to show our appreciation to those who work hard to provide us with great Asian gastronomic delights.

The glamorous event will take place on Monday June 3, at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel where top contenders who have dedicated their whole career to the Asian food industry will gather together to celebrate their achievements.

Accolades will be presented to the most successful restaurants and takeaways that provide the Canadian public with the best of Indian, Oriental, Chinese, Korean, Malaysian and Japanese dishes among other.

The awards will seek to reward the talent, skill, hard work and determination of those who serve the Asian food industry, promote Asian cuisine and connect communities through food and culture. They also aim to highlight the efforts of individuals and establishments that work hard to make a positive difference to Canadian culture and economy.

A Spokesperson for the Toronto Asian Food Awards 2019 said: “We are very happy to be launching the first ever Toronto Asian Food Awards. Although in the first year, we received a great response from the public who went behind our nomination process to vote for their favourite establishments that love visiting time and time again.

“Undoubtedly, there are some amazing specialists in Toronto, who know how to offer great service and meet the needs of their clients. We would like to wish all the finalists the best of luck and we can’t wait to welcome all our guests and celebrate the winners with them.”
