Here We Go Again! …………. Best Bites Barbecue
When Columbus Underground throws a party you know you are in for a treat! Thursday we attended the Best Bites Barbecue at the The BoatHouse. Adding to the delicious food was a spectacular view of the Scioto River. Seventeen area restaurants treated us to their best barbecue dishes and sides.
We have gone to quite a few of these events, burgers, pizza, tacos, etc they are always well attended, friendly events and this one was exceptionally laid back. Our table had a lively bunch of no longer strangers and we enjoyed conversation as well as comparing dishes and making recommendations for what to taste next.
As usual I could not name one favorite, the dishes served were imaginative and great combinations of textures and flavors. One of my favorite food trucks dazzled us with their bourbon glazed BBQ brisket taco – Paddy Wagon offers this regularly on their food truck – it’s a not to miss treat! I think one of the biggest surprised was a potato skin with grilled chicken topped with Hawaiian style slaw – it was the perfect combination of sweet and crunchy on a potato skin – I would never think to put these items together and it was pure heaven, thank you Aloha Streatery! To break up the heat from jalapeo corn bread and hot sauce was Sho-Oh serving up Snoballs in amazing flavors!
And to think all this eating was for a great cause! The beneficiary of the a portion of the ticket sales was CelebrateOne! This agency actively educates parents on ways to reduce the factors that contribute to infant mortality. Thank you to all who worked so hard to make this event pure pleasure!
