The Taste Tauranga Supreme Burger and People's Choice winners announced

Last week we announced the winner of Supreme Burger from the inaugural Taste Tauranga Burger Competition that ran during August! Judges Sam and Casey from The Rock have been raving about the flavours, variety, quality and the awesome service they received from the Downtown Tauranga eateries involved in our first ever Burger Competition! The winner of 2019’s SUPREME BURGER is… the mouth-watering Full Monty Python burger from Crown and Badger - 200g Angus beef brisket patty with bacon, crumbed camembert, fried egg, caramelised onion, cheddar cheese, MAD sauce, beets and salad in a toasted Volare brioche bun topped with a pickle. 

Did you vote for your favourite? The votes have been counted and we're thrilled to announce The People’s Choice burger award goes to The Hop House! They served up a devine "Hop Noir Burger", 150 gram beef brisket & black pudding patty, bacon jam, local pohutakawa smoked gouda, crispy onion rings, vine tomato, cos lettuce, aioli in a sesame seed charcoal bun. Yum! Congratulations also goes to Fiona Bennett who we randomly drew as the winner of $300 Downtown Tauranga vouchers! Thank you to all those who dined out during Taste Tauranga and enjoyed the fantastic flavours our eateries have to offer.
