Be it a bar, a small, tucked-away restaurant or a dai pai dong with no English menu, these are the more off-the-beaten-track places that you love and want to give a little boost to during all this madness happening in the world right now.

If you’re going to go out for a socially isolated meal, where would you choose to do it? Or when the bars reopen down the line and life returns to some semblance of normality, where would you choose to head for a tipple? Let’s give these spots a little love for their toil and an award to bring a smile during the dark hours of this pandemic.

Here’s a reminder of last year’s Foodie Forks Hidden Gem winners, in case you need a little memory jog.
