Fifteen of the UK’s most talented and creative chefs took part in The Slider Decider bun fight last night at The Gun Docklands, but it was Pachamama who was crowned the best of the bunch!
Pachamama’s beef ‘pan con chicharron’ creation with aged beef patty, demi brioche bun, pork belly chicharron, aji Amarillo mayo, mature cheese & avocado, beat a host of other impressive entries, including that from last year’s champion, Tim Anderson at Nanban.
Runner-up was the Maze Grill Park Wall with this soft-shell crab spider slider: fired soft-shell crab, snow crab and spicy mayo dipped in crab bisque. Third place went to Source Battersea with a 35-day aged beef burger with a special spice blend, stilton AND comte cheese and buttermilk bap with a black pudding and bourbon sauce.
Sounds like the judging panel had a hard night calling that one.
Other restaurants that took part included Hixter Bankside, Iberica, Joe’s Southern Kitchen, Dirty Bones, Heddon Street Kitchen & Bonnie Gull.
