Last week I was able to have a first taste of the new voted menu items for Hilton Garden Inn at their Burbank location. The final item winners were sticky finger ribs, a cherry blossom cocktail and a mason jar chocolate fudge cake! These items were chosen from a quarter of a million users across nationwide to be chosen for the Hilton Garden Inn new items, YUM!
Through the “Sophisticated Bites” program, Hilton Garden Inn called upon foodies, fans and fellow travelers across the nation earlier this summer to vote on 11 specially created contenders within the categories of small plates, handcrafted cocktails and sweet treats.
My personal fave was the fudge cake because NOMZ but the other two items were just as delicious. More info on the new menu items and photos below!
The first item we tried was the Cherry Blossom Cocktail - a homage to the craft cocktail movement, get tangy with this tempting blend of Hornets Reposada Tequila, lime juice, grapefruit juice and grenadine! (not only was it tasty, it was such a beautiful red color!)
Next we tried the sticky finger ribs! These low and slow baby back ribs with whiskey soy barbecue sauce, crispy onions and scallions are SO good. I specifically loved the crunch with the crispy onion.
Last but not least, was a filled to the brim, chocolates mason jar fudge cake. Layers of rich chocolate mousse topped with whipped cream and caramel sauce, need I say more?
