THREE eateries from Port Elizabeth will be competing against 12 other restaurants and takeaway shops in the 2017 Coca-Cola Food Fest regional semi-finals this weekend.

Up to 4 000 eateries registered to participate in this year’s competition and more than 40 000 public votes were cast in the 2017 Coca-Cola Food Festival to select the regional semi-finalists.

The three semi-finalists from Port Elizabeth are the Yi Pin Restaurant in Summerstrand, Delhi Snacks in Korsten and Roast Master Café in Walmer. The general public nominated their favourite eateries in three different categories - from takeaways through to fine dining restaurants.

They then had the opportunity to vote for their favourites.

The three eateries, representing Port Elizabeth, will come up against 12 other eateries from the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal in one of two regional semi-final events this Saturday.

Finalists will be selected according to three categories defined as “on-the-go” meals that can be eaten off the premises, “traditional” plated meals that can be eaten while seated at the premises, and “gourmet” which is defined as speciality cuisine dishes.

The 12 finalists representing the top three meal categories selected at the two events will each receive R22 500.

The final round will take place in Johannesburg on September 21, where the winner in each category will receive R150 000, 60% of which will be paid in cash, while the rest will be used to upgrade the eatery.

Voters can also win their share of R140 000, which includes random draws for R5 to R10 airtime and daily cash prizes, as well as cookware to the value of R35 000.
