Beer, Momo And Wings: Can You Stomach These Crazy Food Challenges Around Town?

Namya posted on 21 March

Ten-Second Takeaway

What can be better than eating good food? Why, taking up mighty food challenges as pastime. At LBB, we believe in taking up challenges of any kind, especially those that involve food. And we bring to you some of our favourite food challenges that involve stuffing your face with everything from chicken wings to momos. But of course every competition comes with a deadly catch! So let the hunger games begin!

Plan B’s ABS Hot Wings Challenge

This is a pretty popular challenge and has been tried by many. The challenge includes tucking into 12 super spicy chicken wings {slathered with a piping hot sauce} that will guiltlessly burn your fingers and mouth as you try to negotiate your way through the blazing sauce. The best part is that you have only 4 minutes to finish all of this! However winning this challenge does have its perks as you are ceremoniously given a T-shirt that says ‘I survived the Plan B ABS Challenge’ and you get your photo put on the Wall of Fame by the bar! Woohoo!

They also have an Animal Burger challenge that involves working your way through a 500 gram meat burger with not one but five patties to be consumed in 6 minutes. If you finish it, you get freed from the burden of paying for this burger and of course you get your picture on the Wall of Fame. While the losers get their photos put on the Wall of Shame by the bathrooms {which we admit could be a little humiliating}.

Hoppipola’s Thursday Night Beer Challenge

On the last Thursday of every month, Hoppipola organises a beer challenge where four to five contestants compete to chug a pint of beer. The person who finishes first gets 2 pitchers of free beer the next month! Isn’t that awesome? Free beer, yay! They conduct this only if they have enough people to compete so keep an eye out or convince your buddies to do it with you!

SodaBottleOpenerWala’s Khade Chamach Ki Chai

At this quirky restaurant, they offer a very interesting challenge, the Khade Chamach Ki Chai. It is pretty much what it sounds like with so much sugar that the spoon stands straight in the tea. Yes, guys its hardcore. If you finish the glass, then it’s on the house! And we all know that we can’t help ourselves when it comes to free stuff. But beware, you might swear off sweets after this.

The Biere Club Challenge

Now the challenge here is quite a daunting one, for you have to finish 12 spicy chicken drumsticks coated with wild habanero chilli sauce, two regular buckets of fries, one mini Baguette and one pitcher of freshly brewed beer. And all in 20 minutes! While it may be fun to attempt this challenge, if you lose you have to pay the full price for the food, which comes up to around INR 3,000 and change! That’s a heavy price to pay in our opinion, but if you win then it’s all on the house.

Bamey’s Restro Café

Now here’s something different! Bamey’s offers a Spicy Momo Challenge for all momo lovers in town! So here is the challenge — ten momos in 10 minutes, sounds easy doesn’t it? Well, the twist comes in with the sweat-breaking spice that these momos come cooked in. We would say the prize for this challenge is the best because if you win you get a lifetime of free momos!! So if you are still reading this {and haven’t dashed off to complete one of the challenges} then you better start practicing for this one, right away.
