Two popular food spots in Donegal are celebrating wins following the hotly-contested Irish Takeaway Awards.
Chandpur Indian Restaurant in Donegal Town and Ramelton Food Truck Johnny’s Ranch both took home awards from the inaugural event.
Chandpur was crowned Ireland’s best Indian Takeaway of the Year 2019 – just another prize for this ever-award winning restaurant. Co-owner Susan Miah also won best-dressed lady on the night!
“We were overwhelmed to win Best Indian Takeaway All-Ireland and Ulster and I got Best Dressed Lady so it was a hat trick for Chandpur! We hope we can carry on the success for the other awards coming up too,” Susan said.
On their first birthday, Johnny’s Ranch became the Newcomer of the Year 2019. In just one year, the Ramelton food truck has already picked up the Best Burger in Ulster award, best Independent Takeaway in Ulster and was listed on the 20 best food trucks and trailers for 2019 by the Sunday Independent.
250 people gathered at the Radisson Blu Hotel Athlone on Monday to celebrate the awards honouring the best of the food to go industry. The awards were hosted by the publishers of YesChef magazine.
