33,000 diners have spoken.

The annual Chinese Restaurant Awards released its 2015 Diners’ Choice Awards winners today to single out the best Chinese food establishments in all of Metro Vancouver, and 17 of the 21 top picks are in Richmond.

Discerning patrons have been voting in the Diners’ Choice portion of the awards since Feb. 17, and have entered a whopping 33,759 votes on everything from Best Service to Food Court Stall (Richmond’s Hakkasan and bubble Waffle Café at Aberdeen Centre).

2015 diners are also the first to vote on five new categories including Best Har Gow, Best Five Spiced Beef Wrapped in Chinese Pancake, Best Tea-smoked Duck, Best Three-cup Chicken and Best Original-Flavour Egg Waffles.

The Chinese Restaurant Awards is still yet to release its critics’ picks for the Signature Dish Awards, coming out on April 15, as well results from the newly introduced Food Bloggers’ Choice Awards (featuring Sherman’s Food Adventures, VanFoodies.com, Myvanlife.com and Vandiary.com).
