Westcliff monster burger challenge
12:00pm Thursday 14th March 2013 in News
IT STANDS two-foot tall and contains 3lbs of meat, but so far no-one has managed to eat it all.
The supersized burger, named the Deep Throat Challenge, is being sold at Lunch in a Bag in Fairfax Drive, Westcliff.
It consists of six beef patties and a choice of five extra toppings - including baked beans, fish fingers and peanut butter. And if you eat it all, along with a side salad and chips, in just 30 minutes you get the £20 burger for free.
Lunch in a Bag’s manager Paul Crane said: “We were inspired to do something like this by the Man vs Food TV show. People go bananas for our burgers. People were saying that they wished we done a bigger burger, so I gave it some thought and came up with this.
“No one has completed the challenge yet. We did have one guy though complete it after two days. He took some of it home and kept in his fridge.”
For his next challenge, Mr Crane wants to serve up a really big breakfast. He said: “Twelve sausages, twelve eggs, twelve slices of bacon. A real, real monster. I just need to find a plate big enough first!”
