As each bracket nears closer to the final entry, the Trinity Grove’s Fork Fight battle gets more and more heated. Last night proved to be one of the more exciting chapters in the history of the contest with Souk and Chino taking it to extremes on the plate. Both Yasar Khalaf (Souk) and Uno (Chino) worked the crowd one final time as the crowd filled the space at 3015 Trinity Groves, first sipping hand crafted cocktails made by both teams, then finally settling in to a starter course.
The night rolled on and the servers continued to bring the many course, eight in total, to the sold out crowd. With the final fork count showing a decisive Chino win it was evident that the true victors were those dining, even with the team of belly dancers invited by Souk (smart play).
We share with you the photos from the evening below. There are a few tickets remaining for next week’s battle between LUCK and Amberjax. Remember LUCK is the Local Urban Craft Kitchen which features many of their dishes infused with local brews, and Amberjax is the seafood entry at Trinity Groves.
