As part of the 7th Annual Chinese Restaurant Awards, 15 dishes have been chosen as the best of the best, thanks to the diligent taste-testing of a panel of critics and food bloggers.

Split into two crews, the critics put their savvy seal of approval on 10 dishes, while, as a new addition to the popular annual list, a panel of food bloggers put together five picks.
