The winners of Fork Fight rounds 1 and 2 grabbed their forks and fought last night at 3015 at Trinity Groves. If you've been following closely, that means chef Yaser Khalaf of Souk battled Uno Immanivong of Chino Chinatown for the chance to advance. Both of these teams have fans who came out in droves (it was sold out), so I knew it was going to be a close one.
As a little refresher, Fork Fight is the popular series put on by the folks at Trinity Groves to help the public get a little taste of what's to come for the development. Restaurants have been given the chance to battle it out and build up excitement for the concepts, stores and more that will all be a part of Trinity Groves starting very, very soon and growing into next year. Each week, each contender presents diners with four courses and then everyone votes, placing a fork in the bucket of the restaurant they think won the night.
Here's what was forked out last night:

It was right around the third course that chef Yaser of Souk brought out his little surprise. Well, three of them actually. Because you never really know what you're going to find at Fork Fight. Luckily for the Chino team, their lamb chop was good enough to beat out three sets of fast-moving hips. In the end, Uno and her team at Chino received more forks, so they will move on and battle the winner of next week's forkoff (either LUCK or AmberJax) on Thursday, August 22.
