Food challenges reserved for meat lovers
Food challenges are a dime a dozen in America. These food challenges generally require participants to devour an insane amount of food within a limited time frame to get a free meal. With towers of burger patties and mountain of fries to be devoured by one single soul, these challenges are not to be underestimated no matter how hungry your are.
With more and more diners in Singapore coming up with their own food challenges, you no longer have to spend nights on Youtube watching competitive eaters scarf down plates after plates of tender ribs. Instead, pay a visit to these 10 restaurants and try it for yourself!
1. Meat n’ Chill
The Spicy #YOLO Challenge at Meat n’ Chill is not just a meat challenge; it’s a heat challenge too. Get your tastebuds ready to devour this plate of fries and ribs that comes in two different spice levels: Walk in the Park ($24+) or On Cloud 9 ($35+). The hot sauce is made with a blend of Carolina Reaper Chilli Peppers and Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, which are certified as the world’s hottest chilli pepper by Guinness World Records in 2013 and 2012 respectively. And if that’s not enough, you can order some off-the-menu spicy wings that have the same hot sauce in the challenge to complete your meat fest!
