Hi folks this is Big John blogging for lovepattayathailand.com.
I was invited by Constantine the boss of Baan Dusit holiday resort to judge a barbecue competition, I was one of six judges.
This resort is about 25 minutes away from Central Pattaya. There were ten local restaurants competing for quite a few varied awards. Now I have to tell you, that to me all of them were winners, as they all put out some great tasting food.
While we were eating there were quite a few activities going on, namely mixx was there with their disco, and dancers. I would estimate that their was between 300-500 people at this event.
This was a hard fought contest, but the marks that were awarded, went to the people who served up ideas a little bit different to the norm.
Minimo was awarded the prize, for the best fish dish, what they did to it was amazing, and I would say to people who hate fish please try it, then tell me you don’t like fish.
Other specialist cooks were, All American Restaurant, who gave us the best ribs I have ever tasted, they also got a prize for their burgers, which were really great.
But the overwhelming champions were New Nordic Steaks Grill and Winery, who gave us such a wide range of fish and meats, which were done to a very high standard, but well done to the winners, and every one who took part in this event.
To round off the night, many people released Chinese lanterns.
All in all I think this event was a great success.
