King Chef Challenge 2019

It was an auspicious day last November 19   as King Chef celebrated 3 milestones in one day.

On its 7th year anniversary, King Chef opened its 7th branch at Ayala Malls Manila Bay and launched its 7th King Chef Challenge at the Activity Center of the mall.

The tension and excitement was palpable as we await to taste the  wonderful new creations of 3 groups  of   chef finalists  in the much awaited annual competition.

It was my first time to judge a competition along with  the audience and it was a tough one. Each group served delicious creations that were pleasing to the eye and the palate.

But there can only be one Grand Prize Winner and that honor was won by Group 1 composed of Chef
Chef Ronald Asay and Chef Melvin Sumakdon  who  walked away with P20,000.00  check each  plus Lee Kum Kee package , for their entry below ...

Golden Tower with Plum Glazed Chicken
Chicken was plump , succulent and flavorful. A result of  the combination of Lee Kum Kee's  Oyster Sauce, Plum Sauce, Hoisin Sauce, Chicken Marinade, Liquid Seasoning and Japanese Soy to name a few.

Fisherman's Prawn Ball
Presentation was beautiful with that festive orange color. It was a cam magnet and  the camera and our mobile phones certainly eat first. Enjoyed dipping that tasty orb in a combination of Lee Kum Kee's Oyster Sauce and Sesame Oil

 Other entries  were...

Stuffed Chicken Roll

Meatball Crepe in Milk Tea Sauce

Chef Israel Alterano and Chef Ruben Paragoya Group 3  were first runner up.

Declared the  chef with Best in Sauce Combination   was Chef Romnick Rotas.

Congratulations winners ! If I heard it correctly, the winning dishes will be included in King Chef's menu in 2020. So watch out for it.

Hats off to King Chef Restaurant for providing a learning environment for its chefs to strive for innovation and excellence in their field.

No wonder King Chef's food remains outstanding in quality, taste and presentation.

Cheers to more branches and another King Chef Competition in 2020!
