The Kewdale Tavern will join in this year in a bid to knock the Como establishment off its throne.
Australian Hotels Association (WA) chief executive Bradley Woods said sandwich eaters have until April 20 to vote online at www.hospitalitywa.com.
�Now in its eighth year, this popular competition continues to raise the gastronomic quality of WA steak sandwiches,� he said.
�Steak sandwiches are an Aussie icon and a highlight of any pub menu. They pull together great ideas, home-style cooking, fresh local produce and beautiful Australian meat.�
Following online consumer voting, five metropolitan finalists and five regional finalists (one from each tourism region) will be invited to compete in a live steak sandwich cook-off.
These finalists will be announced on April 23 with the final cook-offs taking place at the AHA�s Hospitality Expo on May 19 and 20 at Crown Perth.
