BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A Baton Rouge chef appeared on an episode of The Food Network's hit show "Chopped." 

Chef Eusebio Gongora II was featured on the May 23, 2017 episode titled "Grill Game." He made it to the final round, but was eliminated after the dessert. 

In the episode, Gongora attempted to out-grill the competition with pre-selected ingredients.  

Gongora is currently the executive chef at Southfin Southern Poke, which is the newest addition to the Southdowns area.  

Southfin is the concept of the same owners of City Pork. Where City Pork serves up Charcuterie, Southfin is focused on Hawaiian inspired street food.  

"At Southfin, you can choose from several Chef composed poke bowls or get inspired to customize your own using an array of fresh seafood, healthy ingredients and house made island sauces. Pair your bowl with an assortment of beverages, including own agua frescas, locally made kombucha, or a tropical culinary cocktail," states the restaurant's Facebook page.
