The Spiciest Indian Food In The World
At the upscale Indian restaurant Cinnamon Club in London, England, heat-loving masochists can take part in the Bombay Burner challenge, which is a lamb mince curry that has been known to make some people hallucinate.
It contains Carribean red peppers, chilies, habaneros, jalapeños, and so much more. You have to sign a waiver before embarking on the journey. Oh, and you have to sign a legal disclaimer to even taste it. As one writer explains, “There was nothing euphoric about my experience; it felt more like I was K-holing in a house fire.”
The Biggest Sandwich On Earth
But this food challenge asks someone to eat — in 15 minutes — the Big Fat Ugly — a mega monster made from two rolls, four cheeseburgers, gyro meat, mozzarella sticks, chicken fingers, mac-n-cheese, pizza bites, corndogs, and so, so much more.
The Spiciest 48-Ounce Soup
Nitally’s ThaiMex Cuisine in St. Petersburg, Florida, where you’ll dine on 48 ounces of a soup (known as the Inferno) made from something called bhut jolokia, aka the infamous oh-so-spicy ghost chili. It’s also used in pepper spray.
A 72-Ounce Steak
For some context, most steaks we order are around six or eight ounces, but this jumbo steak at The Big Texan Steak Ranch comes with a bread roll, shrimp, potatoes and beans.
It’s basically everything that you could ever want at a backyard BBQ, except times a billion — and it’ll probably come close to killing you. But if you win, the meal’s on the house
Two Pounds Of Noodles
You’ll eat a bowl of Pho that contains two pounds of noodles and two more pounds of beef and tripe. You must drink ALL the broth, too. All in under an hour. Winners get their picture on the wall of glory at The Pho Garden restaurant.
The Five-Pound Meat ‘Bomb’
Over at Paddy Long’s in Chicago, adventurous eaters can challenge themselves to sausage, pork, and beef monstrosity which is wrapped in bacon. This meal serves a table of eight, but if you’re daring you can tackle it on your lonesome — in 45 minutes or less.
The Kitchen Sink Challenge
To take it on, you must visit San Francisco Creamery and devour a gigantic sundae made up of three sliced bananas, eight scoops of your choice of ice cream, eight servings of toppings, mounds upon mounds of whipped cream, chopped toasted almonds, and cherries. It’s made to serve six, but if you can polish one off by yourself you get free ice cream for a year.
