Once again, Rookie of the Year was a very strong category at the Vendy Awards. Any of the finalists could easily have won and we wouldn’t have batted an eyelash.
In the end, Nuchas was victorious. Even though the truck was tucked deep into a corner of the site, people love their baked empanadas. They had classic Argentinian, Spicy Chicken, Portobello Spinach and Jambalaya.
We were impressed by Nuchas as soon as we walked into the event. They had two people with baskets of Argentinian croissants, which they handed out to everyone who entered the site.
Argentinian croissants are regular croissants with a sweet glaze on them. The glaze makes them more of a light dessert pastry than a straight croissant.
As we said, Rookie of the Year was a particularly solid field this year.
