Check Out Slovakia
It’s done! ✔️ The first ever Slovakian Street Food Awards! And what a triumph. The teams at Kosice Street Food Festival delivered a bespoke event at Kino Usmev, and the Slovakian people enjoyed voting by QR code – probably the only good thing to come out of Covid! This is how the judging went down:
Champion: Miki Street Food. This boyfriend/girlfriend team are known for their smiles – and their “lokša s kačkou” (potato pancake with duck and cabbage). “This meal was our main dish when we started the business and it’s very typical for Slovakia. It is mostly eaten in the fall and winter. It consists of potato pancake, pulled duck that we prepare in the kitchen, red cabbage, and apple-cinnamon dip prepared on caramel. We add crackers from duck skin and fried onion on the top.”
People’s Choice: Suhajici Pri Panvici. With their signature SHX BURGER. “A perfectly balanced burger” says Head Chef Martin. “It’s sweet/spicy/salty/soft/crunchy… it has everything – sweet brioche bun, sriracha mayonnaise, iceberg lettuce, ground beef, cheddar, onion marmalade, pickles. Everything made by us. But why should I explain when you can come and try it and judge for yourself? :)”
Both will now represent Slovakia at the grand finale of the European Street Food Awards in Germany 🇩🇪 Hosted by Die Street Food Familie in Saarbrucken September 29-October 1. Will they do Slovakia proud?
