The Winners of 1st Annual FriedChillies Foodsters Awards

The 1st Annual FriedChillies Foodsters Awards has recently concluded and an award ceremony cum celebration was organised by FriedChillies last Saturday. As much as we would loved to support FriedChillies in every way we could, but sad to say we were outstation and could not attend the event. Thousands of apologies to Adly, CEO of FriedChillies and the FriedChillies team as well.

Capt'n Hook and I, have came from a long way with Adly. FriedChillies was then knew as Ritz Street. That must be back in the mid-90s ermmm so technically I've known Adly for more than 10 years? Ada ka, Adly??? I still keep in touch with the other two original partners but have yet to meet the current ones except for Riz.

We're happy to see how Ritz Street had progressed from a simple food review cum forum, right on to become FriedChillies. They did not stop right there, in 2005 FriedChillies published the first Foodsters Guide. By then quite a number of food crawls were organised by them including being involved in some biggie food and tourism programmes. You'll know you're big when it is the Ministry of Tourism asking you to assist them huh???

Few weeks back when we were in Cameron Highlands, I stumbled upon the food portion of the local tourism guide, can't recall its name but it's like yellow pages of some sort on tourism Malaysia. So now FriedChillies can be found in various hotels' drawers/desks hehehe...

Coming back to 2009, we see the first FriedChillies Foodsters Award and I hope there'll be more to come ;-)

I would like to thank the FriedChillies team for bringing us, food lovers, together harmoniously and paving a way for us to discuss about food we loved without prejudice. A place for us to share the good and bad of the local makan scenes, a place where food lovers bond and yes, there's a thread in there now discussing a gathering which is gonna happen pretty soon. If you're interested to meet up, go right in and register yourself as a member, and start discussing!
