Food of the Year Awards - 2007

Welcome to Juliansi.Blogspot.Com's inaugural
FoOTY (Food Of The Year 2007) Awards !

Notes:
1) This is solely at the discretion of my tastebuds and stomach
2) I will only award those categories where I have sampled at least THREE different vendors
(For example, I love the roast pig from Overseas Imbi, but had only sampled TWO
i.e. Overseas and Rainbow Palace, thus this category is void)
3) I look forward to any feedback!
4) Also look forward to any stalls not on the list which you think are even better!!

OK, time for that list ... here's the result of an entire year of eating ... oops, researching! :-)

BEST OF THE BEST
1) Funny Mountain Soya Bean (Ipoh)
2) Spring Golden's Char Siew (Shah Alam)
3) San Yulik Chee Cheong Fun (Cheras)
