THE WINNER’S CIRCLE
Our Newest Winner
Hayley Ann Steinbarth
A huge congratulations goes out to not only our FIRST FEMALE WINNER, but also our FIRST VEGETARIAN CHAMPION! Thats right. Hayley Ann, a proud regular of Sprig and Sprout, and a local yoga instructor, subbed out the 3.5 Quarts of beef broth and two pounds of flank and brisket for veggie broth with carrots, daikon, broccoli and cauliflower…..AND SHE CRUSHED IT! (With a pretty impressive time, we must say) However, this was not her first challenge. She also claims victory over 2 other challenges. We agree that she would definitely have more if, “..there were more vegetarian challenges to be had.”

Our Reigning Champ
Ramsey Hilton was on vacation from Columbus, Ohio for a Halloween outing (in costume as a member of Daft Punk) in DC when he decided to take on the Pho Challenge. On a personal quest to finish challenges in all 50 states and a few US territories, he was able to check Washington, DC off of his list. Since taking up this hedonistic challenge, in the past 5 years he has beaten 279 food challenges in 41 states and the district. (We verified and were very impressed)
Other Victorious Challengers
Garrett Flynn, a novice food challenger, has been tackling food challenges all over the United States. On a family vacation to Washington, DC, he walked into Sprig and Sprout and walked out our reigning champion.
Wilson Hoo, on vacation with his wife, walked into Sprig and Sprout for lunch and walked away a Pho Challange Champion.

Height: 5′ 10″
Colin arrived at Sprig and Sprout for the pho challenge with his friend Jeff who did not fare as well in the challenge as Colin. As a devout regular at Sprig and Sprout, he was familiar with the daunting challenge that awaited him. With 6 minutes and 58 seconds to spare, he mustered the courage and finished the bowl. Although he is a regular, little of his details are known because of the physical toll the challenge took on him. (Trying to keep it all down) Stay tuned as we will re-interview him for more information later on. To be continued…
