Tuesday October 6 was the first event as part of the ‘Belfast Mouthing Off Series’ which sees Belfast businesses go head to head in an epic battle.
As part of the competition Yelpers have the chance to put on their judging hats and decide who is the best of Belfast.
In the hotly anticipated first of the series, the Burger-Off saw seven Belfast burger powerhouses face off at Jack Harley’s burger joint. All burger businesses in Belfast were contacted by Yelp with just the ‘bravest’ taking part.
Forty Yelpers were chosen as judges and they each got to sample each eateries’ signature burger.
There were certainly some full bellies after the three hour long event (which sounded like heaven) but eventually, under the watchful eyes of business owners and competing chefs, the judges picked their Burger-Off Champion for 2015.
The Barking Dog Restaurant came out top with the most votes – beating three other eateries which all came in at joint second place. As you Vibers will remember, we awarded The Barking Dog the coveted number 1 spot in our very own ‘Best Burgers in Belfast‘ for their mouth-watering Shin Burger.
The Hotplate Noshery, Harley’s, Treehouse AM:PM, City Picnic, Bootleggers and Rocket & Relish all put up a good fight in the burger stakes (as you can see from the pics below…)
This really was an epic showdown with all the eateries taking part truly showcasing what they have to offer.
Stevie McIntyre from Yelp added: “Yelp events like The Burger-Off, part of the Mouthing Off series are about exposing what’s on offer in Belfast, some of the judges had never been through the doors at Harley’s and I doubt any of them have ever eaten 7 different burgers in one night – but here at Yelp we want to help the people of Belfast discover what’s on offer and allow them to share their own experiences.”
