Dramatic Come From Behind Win For Newly Crowned GMG Gloucester Steak Bomb Champ Destinos!!!!
After four rounds it looked like Captain Hooks Had It In The Bag But in the Final Taste Round (accounting for 40% of the scores) Destinos Pulled Out A Dramatic Come From Behind Win.
We had Bex, Chris DeWolfe, Kim Smith and Brianmoc go in for the sub pick-ups last night. Brought the subs in and weighed and recorded the weights and sequestered the judges in a separate room while we marked each sub Sub A, Sub B, Sub C and Sub D to insure no bias and a blind tasting.
Judges Ed Collard, Chris DeWolfe, Brian O’Connor and Craig Kimberley took their judging duty very seriously. The one part I would say would not be a fair comparison is Cape Ann brewing based on price since their price includes fries, slaw and a pickle. However even if you threw the value category out Cape Ann Brewing would have come in last.
Captain Hooks wins People Choice with far and away most number of nominations.
Overall Best Gloucester Steak Bomb Challenge winner Based on Value, Taste, Packaging, Lack of Sogginess and Equal Distribution of Meat is Destinos.
Once again it was noted by all four judges that each one of these subs was a winner. To be nominated out of all the incredible sub shops in Gloucester is in itself a testament to how great each one of these Steak Bombs are and Cape Ann Brewing, Captain Hooks, Leonardos and Destinos all deserve accolades
Thanks To Mamie’s Kitchen for providing a neutral stage for judging. Thanks to our sub picker uppers. thanks to Kim Smith for filming (look for her awesome video Thursday).
You’d be happy to patronize any of these fine eateries. Today at Mamie’s Kitchen Chris will be serving up his killer Cheese Steak Sub in honor of yesterday’s competition.
