I will contact the winner by email on November 3rd. If I don't hear back from winner withing 48 hours, I will move on to the 2nd winner, and so on. One comment per person please.

OK! Now, here is more about the event!

With all these restaurants, and more to come, offering tastes of their yummiest yums, Taste of Nashville is going to be the Nashville food event of the year!

The Phoenix Club of Nashville, the organizers of the Taste of Nashville, is really a wonderful organization with a really cool mission: To significantly impact the direction of our community youth by raising funds in a social setting that challenges young professional men to be community leaders. I need to say, the Phoenix Club of Nashville knows how to throw a food social party, and last year, this single event raised $16,000 for the Boys and Girls Club of Middle TN! Now that is a lot of funds, food, and fun!

Smiling Elephant. I almost don't want to tell people about it because it is always packed and tough to find a parking spot, but it is oh so good. The Pad Thai is amazing - no ketchup and noodles here. The daily curry never disappoints.

I have to second Smiling Elephant. The veggies with curried peanut sauce = YUM.
Also quite tasty...Pepperfire on Gallatin. I am not a fried chicken fan, but their's is awesome AND spicy.
Just one more :)...the KY catfish at Holland House is soooooo good. I've had 3 people now tell me they love that dish and they hate catfish.

It's not that secret but I really love the ice cream at Jeni's (also served at Hot and Cold in Hillsboro village has a limited selection but without the long lines) favorite flavors include the gravel road, cherry lambic among others.

I'm trying to remember if you've done city house yet. Surely you have... have you tried the pork belly pizza?

Not exactly hidden, it's on West End, but I do tend to evangelize about the Singapore style curry noodles at China Dragon. It's next to Bombay Palace. When they are good they are amazing and when they are having an "off" day they are still better than anything that can be had at the average take out place.

Oh Cafe Rakka has some amazing food. I love the eggplant and they have an awesome hummus bar. What a great giveaway. Sounds like so much fun!!

Does Hendersonville count as Nashville? Hm?? I'm going to pretend it does because I love Cafe Rakka. I haven't tried everything they make, but I have loved everything I've tried. :) The first thing I got was the Shawermah on the Sajj which was seasoned sliced beef cooked on a Mediterranean Wok and served with mediterranean salad,saffron basmati rice, yogurt sauce, and pita bread. Yum. and I don't know what kind of tea it is, but their Red Tea is SO good. Iced or Hot.

as for chance to win the tickets, I would love to take my boyfriend to that event. We both love going out to eat, but our student budgets don't allow us to do it very often. You're really nice to offer the chance for someone to win tickets, Thank you!

King's Market on Antioch Pike and Haywood Lane not only has AMAZING papaya salad but their whole smoked duck is worth the drive!

So Gong Dong - The Tofu House off of Haywood (next to Sam's Club) Amazing Tofu Soup, absolutely the BEST I have ever had, anywhere! Different varieties, seafood, kimchi, etc... and you can ask for it from hot to mild!

I would go with Mambu! It's a hidden restaurant on Hayes and every time I tell someone about it- they have never heard of it. It's delicious and the ambience is so fun! Great for a date or a bunch of friends who want to have quality cuisine.

I just moved to town, so I am afraid I haven't eaten at any hidden gems just yet, but I'm looking forward to trying Anatolia Turkish Restaurant in Sylvan Park.

The burger at PM - seriously, my favorite burger in Nashville.

I love Millers Grocery down in Christiana, TN. Their catfish is awesome paired with any number of their delicious side dishes. To top it off they have an amazing dessert bar. You get to choose exactly which piece from the multiple cakes and pies you want to eat.

My favorite places to eat in Bellevue are Sams Kabob Gyro and Tees Fireside Cafe. Both are in the same strip mall along 70S next to TJMAXX. Sams serves an excellent gyro and Tees has a great chicken salad sandwich and Sunday brunch.

My favorite local place is Firefly Grill in Green Hills. The menu changes frequently, but the best meal I recall was a Braised Pork Shoulder which was meltingly tender on the inside with a crusty exterior.
