Ep44: On Restaurant Reviews, and The Tatler Awards

Ep44: On Restaurant Reviews, and The Tatler Awards

The restaurant review industry in Malaysia is a languid, slow-moving beast. Food and flavour is undoubtedly in our veins, yet the talk and critiques of food places never seem to go far or deep. Slowly though, with Michelin penetrating into Singapore & Thailand, the Malaysia beast's ears are perking up. So this week, we speak to Samantha Lim, a writer and editor who heads the food & dining section of Malaysia Tatler, T.Dining. She speaks about her experiences reviewing restaurants, tells us about the Eater 38-esque T.Dining Awards she headed this year, and comment on the industry at large.
