A Columbia Heights restaurant took home a big honor yesterday.

Thip Kao, a Laotian restaurant located at 3462 14th Street NW, won highest honors at yesterday’s American Institute of Wine and Food (AIWF) 10th Annual Crab Cake Competition.

Along with the bragging rights, Thip Kao will receive funds to support a culinary intern in its kitchen.

Thip Kao’s Chef Seng Luangrath’s crab cake was chosen over entries from the likes of Chef Spike Mendelsohn from Bernaise, Chef Joe Palma of Bourbon Steak and other award-winning chefs.

The crab cake competition is a yearly contest aimed at raising money for culinary internships, scholarships and educational programs in D.C. Each year, the contest pits eight local chefs against one another in a showdown to create the perfect crab cake with Maryland blue crab.
