Let me talking about a little bit about this place. It’s not only a place where you can eat normal dishes (especially mexican dishes, most common dishes like burritos or something like that), it’s not a normal pub where you can drink something with friends in the evening or maybe drink something during a Canucks game…It’s is also an FOOD RING for a big competition! I went there for the first time with my roommate to watch a Canucks game (there was a special offer for a discount on the beers everytime that Canucks scored, sounds good!) and I ate there very well, more better than a fast food! After that I went there for a lunch with friends because during the day is more easy to find a place to sit and the price is not too high. But the funniest story was two months ago. We heard from someone that there is a special CHALLANGE there. We called it HAMBURGER CHALLANGE!!
We loved this kind of challange in fact we tried before Pasta Challange and Japanese food Challange but we had never tried HAMBURGER CHALLANGE! So, we decided to go there and now I try to explain the rules for you. They are very simple:
– The hamburger is special, it is a 2 POUNDS hamburger !!!
-You have one hour to eat it. If you finish it less than one hour, it is free. If you spend more time or you cannot finish it, you’ve to pay $25.
-You are not allow to leave the table before the end of the challange, if you do it, you’re squalify and you have to pay the cost of the Hamburger (for this reason remember to go to the washroom before).
-You cannot share your hamburger with other people and you cannot change the ingredients inside the hamburger.
That’s all. The rules are simple but the challange was so hard!
I can explain the problems that I found. There were 2 main problems for me. The first one was the mushrooms because I don’t like too much them and inside the hamburger there were many of these. The second problem was the bread, it was so wet, especially the part below, if you want to try, I can suggest you to use a little piece of paper under the hamburger to help to get dry a little bit the bread.
I ate firstly the meat and the vegetables and after that, I started to eat the bread…….Final result? I couldn’t finish it because I was so full! Mushrooms and bread were been my weakness! There were other three challenger, 2 swiss guys and one japanese. The Swiss Squad quit the Challange before me meanwhile the japanese guy was the most closest to the victory but he didn’t finish the last small piace of bread and he had to run to the washroom (he felt sick).
If you’re brave, you’ve to try it! And if you have many friends that want to join you in this challange, it’ll be funny!
