HELLO! Thailand hosted its inaugural ‘HELLO! Taste Awards 2020’ ceremony, showcasing Bangkok’s best restaurants, as chosen by food-loving celebrities and gastronomy gurus.
Big news for our gourmand-loving readers! Our sister-magazine, HELLO! Thailand, has launched its inaugural edition of the ‘Hello! Taste Guide 2020’, gathering over 250 of the top eateries in Bangkok’s gastronomic scene. Showcasing the crème de la crème of dining experiences across the city, the trustworthy food guide is the result of in-depth reviews by a carefully-chosen panel of experts.
Specially chosen judges such as Rika Dila, Molchaya Techapaibul, Siriwatoo Raksakiati, Pichet Wongtrakulkit, Duangkamol Vephula Waagensen, Neeranart Pausawasdi, and Sawitri Roochanapruk were joined by key members of the HELLO! Team — namely, Managing Director of BurdaLuxury Bangkok, Waraporn Siriboonma, and HELLO! Thailand Managing Editor Kessuda Marawichai. Together, they personally reviewed and voted on the best dining establishments in the city — in ‘HELLO! Taste Guide 2020’, we see the results of this dedicated food hustle, as well as the eateries that made it to the top.
To celebrate the guide’s official unveiling, HELLO! Thailand hosted a special ‘HELLO! Taste Awards 2020’ presentation, sponsored by Mali and Citi Credit Card.
