A Coastal Fiesta Awaits in Lincoln City
Lincoln City, OR – A fiesta awaits you on April 30th at the 8th Annual Fish Taco Cook-Off. From 11am to 2pm, at the Culinary Center in Lincoln City, professional chefs from around the region will compete for the title of best fish tacos on the Oregon Coast. Back after a 4 year break, Mist Restaurant, located at the oceanfront Surftides Resort, will be competing at the Cook-Off. Executive Chef Jason Jobe is looking forward to participating this year.
“I am very excited about competing on behalf of Mist,” says Jobe. “We recently unveiled a new menu, and will be expanding it as the restaurant grows. The Cook-Off is a great way to get exposure for the restaurant and showcase our new menu.”
Asked about their fish tacos, Jobe says they will be using the recipe on their menu. “I will be making a grilled cod taco with a cabbage cilantro slaw, chipotle aioli, topped off with fresh pico de gallo,” elaborates Jobe. “We also put a lot of love into preparing each fish taco, which is what sets ours apart from other restaurants.”
Fresh-made fish tacos from Mist Restaurant will be available at the event, and from other Oregon Coast restuarants. Taste tacos from each participant, then vote for your favorite for the Peoples Choice Award.
Admission to the Cook-Off is free with fish tacos available for $1.50 each. Beer and wine will be available for purchase from the Culinary Center, and an assortment of desserts from Captain Dan’s Pirate Pastry Shop and My Petite Sweet. Barnacle Bills Seafood Market will also have smoked seafood products for sale.
The Culinary Center in Lincoln City is located at 801 SW Highway 101 on the fourth floor of City Hall. The Culinary Center hosts these annual cook-offs: Jambalaya Cook-Off, Fish Taco Cook-Off, and Wild Mushroom Cook-Off. Each features some of the best restuarants on the Oregon Coast competing for top honors.
