Pakistan is ready to have its first restaurant awards
Move over LSA's, there's a new award show in town!
The All Pakistan Restaurant Association (APRA) has announced that they are gearing up for Pakistan's first ever restaurant awards.
In a press conference at Lal Qila, APRA revealed their jury members for the awards; Celebrity Chef Saadat, Chef Abdul Hadi, Sumeira Hussain, Dr Sadia Safdar and Ali Sultan.
There will be 20 awards to hand out, 5 of which will be decided by the jury and 15 will be Customer Choice Awards.
In a press release, APRA stated, "Beyond the trophies and glamor, the All Pakistan Restaurant Awards aim to recognize and acknowledge special features of restaurants including food and service excellence, outstanding dining and delivery experiences."
They revealed they will do so "by giving the public and regular patrons of APRA access to voting and having a voice that counts".
APRA hopes this will increase the competition locally and "ultimately raise the level of food quality and the standards of service in the Pakistani restaurant industry."
