The 2013 Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering Awards for Excellence were announced last week with the major award winners in Northern Queensland:
NORTHERN QLD CONSUMER VOTE AWARD
WINNER – Salsa Bar & Grill, PORT DOUGLAS
NORTHERN QUEENSLAND CATERER OF THE YEAR
WINNER - Port Douglas Catering & Events, PORT DOUGLAS
NORTHERN QUEENSLAND RESTAURANT OF THE YEAR
WINNER - M Yogo, CAIRNS
M Yogo is really restaurant of the year? Not sure it is quite what it was some years ago when it kicked off and The Pier is looking a bit sad these days with closure of nearby Pesci's and Boardwalk Café!
With such a substantial amount of high profile restaurant space empty I went for a look last week to see if the obscure Japanese Oooh Cha Cha was still there. Wander up the stairs overlooking the stripped interior of the defunct Blue Sky and on the bland mezzanine level it is still going even in such a location! Must be doing something right?
