The event was sponsored by Exotic Winds Spanish Wines and Vedett Beer who each brought enough wine and beer respectively for the audience to enjoy freeflow drinks throughout the afternoon as well as provided lucky draw prizes to various winners. Additionally, 12 of the 14 competing restaurants brought some amazing dishes creating a delicious buffet for all attendees to enjoy.
We'd like to thank everyone for participating; especially the restaurants, Gods, Warriors, voters, sponsors, Alien Encounter for their live music, May for her assistance on stage, and of course to X-TA-SEA Sports Bar & Restaurantand their staff for providing superb service during the event in their fantastic venue! We'd also like to thank Bubba Mac's, C&G Tapas y Libros, TLI Shenzhen, and X-TA-SEA for the additional lucky draw and game prizes they provided.
X-TA-SEA's House Band "Alien Encounter" rocked the party with special guest performances later in the evening.
Four Cowboys also competed to win a 500 RMB Loyalty Card at Bubba Mac's (and partner restaurants) by seeing who could lasso Neil the bass player while riding on a skateboard. Luckily only one glass was broken during the contest.
There were 11 Gods total in this competition. These are people that ate at all of the participating restaurants. To determine which God was the greatest of all, a Battle of the Gods was held. In honor of the late Muhammad Ali, they were given boxing gloves and a chance to punch it out.
At ShekouDaily we take great efforts to ensure that the results are fair and accurate. Our three top concerns in all of our competitions is having fun, eating great food, and finding the truth.
For this event, we conducted an online competition where 1046 ballots were cast by 483 people who ate and rated steaks and salads across Shekou.
The results from the 1046 ballots cast determined the People's Choice Award for each item. The results of the GODs was used to determine the "Expert's Choice" Awards. Finally, an average of the two scores was used to determine the overall Best Steak in Shekou and the Best Salad in Shekou. The three runners up were awarded the titles of "Outstanding Steaks" and "Outstanding "Salads".
