Burgerliscious 2012

The second annual BURGERLISCIOUS burger competition was held at Fred B. Harnett/Ponce Circle Park on November 8th in Coral Gables.
The event featured burgers from 20 different Gables restaurants and for the second straight year, this event was a grand success. Last year I attended the event for leisure and to blog about it, but this year, I was fortunate enough to be a judge. The judge’s table featured great food talent including, The food-e , Fatgirl Hedonist and yes, even the world famous Burger Beast was there! For each round, the restaurants served a signature slider, paired up with six different beer choices from one of the event sponsors- Samuel Adams. I personally loved the Sam Adams’ White Christmas, which went perfect with almost every burger I ate. When the night was over, Shula’s 347 Grill won the Best in Bun award while The People’s Choice went to The Dome.

My favorite burger of the night #13

Coral Gables is home to over 160 restaurants many which happen to have a variety of tasty burgers! I would like to thank the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce for the opportunity to be part of this great event once again. I hope this event continues to grow and stay in beautiful Coral Gables. Next year bigger and better!
