Lonestar Saloon ran their 3rd annual chili cookoff yesterday and Nyam Penh had the honor to be one of the judges. Which really meant that we paid 6 dollars more than everyone else and got a t-shirt. Not a bad deal considering how great the entries tasted!
It was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon, meeting new people and eating 12 different chilis. Notably absent was a submission from Alley Cat Cafe which had won the first 2 cook offs.
The prize was a $75 bar tab to the owner of the first place chili and $25 for the second place chili.
Now onto the winners.
3rd place: Buenos Noches by Sharky Al.
2nd place: John’s Famous Cambodian Chili
1st place: Texas Rojas by Lonestar Saloon
As Lonestar can’t really drink their own bar tab, Greg from Lonestar gave his $75 bar tab to John and Al got the $25!
Many thanks to Greg from Lonestar for organizing this event and I am definitely going to be there next year!
