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.
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!
