Just few hours ago, I was the kay-poh friend who went to support an insane dude – Sam, who coincidentally is known as Sam Insanity for his quest to beat the Goliath Challenge at The Frames Cafe located at Sunway Pyramid.
Let me start by giving you the low-down of this burger.
Known as the Goliath – this humongous burger pales in comparison to the one at EuroDeli – (check that one out HERE . We had 10 contestants for that one!) as the Matterhorn was larger by size & weight alone. However, what made the Goliath burger deadly was the mound of 500g of fries, and the 1.5l rootbeer with 3 scoops of vanilla ice cream! I kid you not!
All that to be chowed down in 30 mins FLAT.
The Goliath Challenge:
Bun – 3 slices
4 fried eggs
3 slices of processed cheese
1.5l of root beer with 3 scoops of vanilla ice cream
300g x 3 patties chicken/beef (TOTAL 900g of meat)
Loads of mayo
Vegetables – lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber
Bun layered with cheese, then egg, then patty, then.. well..it goes on…
The deal is this:
Finish EVERYTHING within 30 minutes and you will stand a chance to win the RM500 cash prize & your friends/supporters you brought along with you will get a 50% discount of their order (F&B) if the challenger wins.
The contenders of the night: Sam Insanity & Mike Yip.
Check out the video of the size of the burger:
Starting the chowdown….Sam started on his burger with knife & fork. LOL!
“Slow & easy”, he said.
Mike’s strategy was to eat part by part..starting with the top bun and working himself through the patty and so forth.
After 15 minutes….. Hahahaha…!
Another 5 mins later….. ROFL.
Sam’s burger was pulverized after a while…so much for slow and easy huh….. ;p
But seriously, the burger was manageable, and it tasted much better than the Matterhorn at EuroDeli so it was much more palatable for both Sam & Mike.
Still, both of them nearly died from the Goliath.
So did they win? Did both of them finish their burgers??
Sam was SO CLOSE. It was just the fries left! Another 10 minutes & he would have won!
Mike, however, still had a long way to go……I’m sure he could have finished it as well, but he had a very big lunch few hours before as this was quite a last minute & random plan. I guess both of them were not as prepared as they should be!
No waste of food, I’d say. I started to help myself to the remainder of the burger! Hahahaa..!
Contest ends: 26th of April, 2011. Yup, contest period is over!
No worries though, for those who are keen to take on a similar challenge, check out Tony Romas’ Wagyu Burger contest!
Anyone up for it ? Do tell me! I want to kay-poh! 😉
