Another year has passed marking the 2nd birthday of parma.com.au. It's also the time when we announce the top 10 parmas of 2009.
To qualify for a top 10 ranking, venues needed to have 5 or more reviews. Other than that, venues simply needed to have received good reviews in order to outrank the competition.
2009's top 10 has some familiar faces, but some new ones too. An indication is included if the venue featured in the 2008 top 10.
Enough specifics; the top 10 parmas of 2009 are:
- Commercial Hotel - Alexandra - VIC
- Harrietville Snowline Hotel - Harrietville - VIC
- The Mint - Melbourne - VIC
- Hotel Sorrento - Sorrento - VIC
- Keepers Arms - North Melbourne - VIC (#1 in 2008)
- Coopers Inn - Melbourne - VIC (#2 in 2008)
- The Leveson - North Melbourne - VIC
- PJ O'Brien's - Southbank - VIC
- Brandon Hotel - Carlton North - VIC (#10 in 2008)
- Duke of Kent - Melbourne - VIC

Mrs Parmas at the top of Little Burke St. i.e. Parliment end. Great parmas and a good selection. The Floater is the BEST!

This list is rubbish, I just went The Mint (melbourne's best parma?) and it was the filthiest parma i've ever had the displeasure of consuming. The service was slack, took 40 mins. The cheese was burnt, the chicken was too thick and tasted defrosted. The whole meal was small, the salad was just some lettuce without dressing and the chips were thin and also burnt. Steer clear of this list, I reckon try out The Napier or The Albion.

As per the article, the top 10 parmas for 2009 are the top 10 ranking venues at the conclusion of 2009 that have 5 or more reviews. Since venue scores are based on all reviews, it's not simply the opinion of 1 person, but rather draws from the opinions of the 700+ parma.com.au members. If you feel Mrs Parma's is so fantastic, perhaps you should submit a review (preferrably with photographic evidence) and include a comment as to why you think they are less average than the top 10 listed here.

This list is a joke! these are far from the top 10...this list is more like 10 average parmas. the best parmas are at Mrs. Parma's.

That is a good looking top 10. I've had 6 of those 10 before and they are deserving of their positions. I'm looking forward to more good parmas in 2010!
