In college basketball championship fashion, the sushi face-off will be organized like a bracket system. The first round will include two heats of 12 competitors. Contestants will compete against the others in their heat to try and consume the most uncut RA Sushi signature Tootsy Makis (kani kama crab mix, shrimp and cucumber rolled and topped with crunchy tempura bits) rolls in three minutes. The top three competitors from each heat advance to the Championship Round. Six competitors will compete in the Championship Sushi Showdown, during which they will eat as many Tootsy Makis as they can in five minutes.
The grand prize eater will win RA Sushi for a year (in the form of twelve $50 RA Sushi Gift Certificates) as well as bragging rights as the Sushi Showdown champion. Second place will win a $100 RA Gift Certificate, third place will receive a $50 RA Gift Certificate and fourth, a $25 RA Gift Certificate.
The competition will be held simultaneously at RA Sushi Highland Village and RA Sushi CityCentre.
Sushi Showdown is limited to the first 24 entries per location. Applications are available at RA Sushi Highland Village and CityCentre locations. Deadline to register is April 4.
