Kerrisdale’s Spice Islands (Gold) has a lock on this ranging category-for good reason. “There is no mistaking the flavour of freshly hand-ground spices,” said one judge. “The resulting balance is subtle but bright.

Abi Sharma is the charming guide to Nepalese cuisine at Café Kathmandu (Silver), where Chinese, Indian, and Tibetan influences result in addictive steamed pork momos (stuffed dumplings served with tomato-cilantro chutney) and delicate curries (including many interesting veg options).
