2010 Gourmet Traveller Awards

Today the post man bought me a surprise, the 2010 Gourmet Traveller Australian restaurant guide. I did what I do every year, opened the guide, took a red pen and marked off all the restaurants I've visited. In the space of 2 minutes I went from eating at 17 top 100 restaurants to 14. Bugger! I've just gone backwards! Well I look at it this way, I have even more places on my list to visit, and that cant be a bad thing.

For all the information on the awards winners and a complete list of the top 100 visit the gourmet traveller website. I've also updated the top 100 list on this blog.

And so starts another list to get through, how many top 100's have you tried?

You've certainly got plenty of options for a good meal! Looking over your list I'm embarrassed that I haven't been to any of them.

Anita said...

I've been to one of them. Four in Hand - it's at the very bottom :) it was for work and really good. I will be going to Quay for my birthday in October... so looking forward to it!!!

Good luck with the challenge this year! Hopefully you'll get the chance to go to somemore interstate ones!

Julia @ Mélanger said...

Just had to grab my guide. I can only check off 7. :( Better get cracking on this end.

Good luck with the challenge- there are some awesome places on there! I can credit myself with 9- but some so long ago its probably not really right to count them. Surprised Bar Lourinha is on there- went there a couple of weeks ago- should write it up!
Looking forward to your reports and recipes!

Hi Arwen - No embarrassment at all. The list is not totally encompassing. I've had some great meals at places that arent othe list, and I think they're probably better than ones that are on the list!

Hi Anita - Woo Hoo Quay! Oh how I wish I was going there. I will be drooling over every. single. photo. you take!

Hi Rilsta - I'm constantly thinking of places to visit to cross some off my list, I just wish my wallet could keep up!

Hi Julia - 7's pretty damn good!

Hi Maree - oh bar Lourinha! I really gotta get down there. I've heard such good things about it. I'll keep an eye on you blog for the write up!
