After two successful Taste Awards in 2011 and 2013, the third Taste Awards 2015  is back.

This year Taste is raising the ‘bar’, making the competition even tougher in the Prestige Judges Category as well as in the popular People’s Choice. Evaluations and nominations are already well underway.

Under People’s Choice Category, patrons will have the opportunity to vote for their most popular establishments across 16 awards including Most Popular Nyama Choma. Voting will open in August 2015 online via Taste will also be introducing voting via WhatsApp in real-time.

The Prestige Category includes the excellence list of Nairobi’s top restaurants and bars as voted on by a panel of food connoisseurs, beverage experts and personas of note at ‘Taste The Best Workshop’ which took place at Capital Club on 27th June 2015. This will also form the nominee list for top accolades such as Chef of The Year.

As part of our commitment to excellence and championing innovation Taste will introduce a new award for 2015. The Rising Star Award for up and coming chefs. It is open to any junior chef under the age of 25.

    Israel has become a rogue nation. Strike Iran and I wouldn’t be surprised if the Russian-Chinese bloc mobilize. Thought you had a tough time in Iraq? LOL wait until Russian air power is aiding endless swarms of Chinese soldiers.
