The Snackdown tournament is only in its first week, but the bracket's already been shaken by what's likely to be the tournament's biggest upset: Defending champions White Center fell to the Southeast Super Region in first-round play.
Thousands of readers filed votes in the match-up, which wasn't even close: The Southeast captured a whopping 68 percent of the vote total. Although the Southeast had the undeniable advantage of being Super - the district comprises Central District, Madrona, Mt. Baker, Beacon Hill, Georgetown, Columbia City and Rainier Valley - White Center was paired with West Seattle, a culinary powerhouse which had a strong solo performance in last year's tournament. But voters deemed the west's tortas, almond croissants, fried chicken, crawfish and beer to be inferior to the foods they find down south.
The Southeast now advances to face the International District, owner of the first round's most commanding win: The ID vanquished Downtown by a 5 to 1 margin.
