Vote now: Have your say in crowning the most delicious dish in town

While keeping things fresh and exciting is the mark of any good restaurant, there is often one dish so beloved it would cause an uproar if it were to disappear from the menu. These dishes are a must-order, whether it’s your first time visiting or your fiftieth; you want every moment to taste as good as that first bite. From tried-and-true staples to new indulgences, now is the time to have your say and crown your absolute favourite dish in town. If there’s any dish you think we may have overlooked, be sure to add it in the comment box.

Everybody who votes goes in the draw to win one of three $1000 vouchers to be spent at one of the American Express Local Dining Collection locations — a list of which can be found here.

Voting has now closed. The 2022 Denizen Hospo Heroes presented by American Express will be announced in the Winter issue of Denizen magazine (released on 23rd May, 2022).
