The Back of the House Brawl returns to Tommy Rocker's this Saturday night. The Iron Chef-style brawl between chefs cooking from ingredients found in a mystery basket on food trucks features three chefs — Mike De Jesus of Nobu at the Hard Rock Hotel, Todd Harrington at Central Michel Richard at Caesars Palace and Eric Suniga of Culinary Drop Out at the Hard Rock Hotel.

New for the event, So You Think You Can Cook?, featuring Keith Sadowski is a tech for Cirque du Soleil. Sadowski, who is not a professional chef, takes over the Strada Press food truck for the night, renaming it Wang Taco. His menu features Chinese-Mexican fusion food such as carnitas pot stickers, bean and cheese pot stickers with Chinese 5 spice sour cream, crab cheese jalapeño popper with wonton bread crumbs, General Tso chicken tacos with pickled broccoli and crispy chicken skin, Kung Pao shrimp tacos with red pepper and zucchini slaw, beef lo mein tacos and flantons with flan inside of a cinnamon sugar wonton wrapper with caramel sauce. All of the dishes go for under $10.

Jolene Mannina, the organizer for the event, says there will also be a raffle benefiting St. Baldricks.
