What exactly is a neighbourhood restaurant? Think of this category like this: you have to go to a board meeting/summons/marriage counselling session in a certain neighbourhood and you spontaneously decide to grab a bite. Where do you go? In certain locales, it may be a temple of gastronomy; in others it may be a tasty hole in the wall. But where’s the spot that best encapsulates the neighbourhood with its food and its vibe? These winners are the answer to that question.
