Vancouver Slider Challenge

Welcome to the 1st Vancouver Foodster Slider Challenge. I have invited restaurants from all over the city to enter their Sliders into this challenge, some entered their house recipe and others created a special slider just for this challenge. Each restaurant will be featuring their Slider creation on their menu from July 9 – August 1, 2021.

How Does this all Work? For the public challenge, you are invited to go out and order any or all of the Sliders s in this challenge, then you decide who you think has the best Slider creation for the People’s Choice award winners. 

Share your experiences: Social share by tweeting, instagraming or snapchating your photos throughout the challenge, our twitter and instagram address is @vanfoodster and the hashtag is #SliderChallengeYVR

Voting criteria –  some things to help you judge your favourite Slider creations – keep these things in mind: originality, creativity, uniqueness, traditional, non-traditional, price, value and most importantly taste.

Get some friends together and make a day or night of it, visit 2 places or more and taste the different Slider creations or go solo or with a friend– just remember to VOTE for your favourites
