It’s no secret that Vancouver is a great city for foodies, but for those extra-adventurous souls, here’s a list of 5 gargantuan meals. Warning: not for the faint of heart (or small of stomach).
Vancouver’s punk-rock-meets-indie-style Cannibal Café is home to “The Beast,” a legendary burger boasting eight patties, eight double-cheddar slices and eight double-bacon strips. Ambitious foodies able to gulp down this burger in 30 minutes or less will get your meal free, a T-Shirt and a photo on the Wall of Fame. Be sure to make reservations in advance for this challenge.https://www.instagram.com/p/BMbzqtaBhwh/?hl=en&taken-by=thecannibalcafe
Love spicy food? Then Wings Restaurant‘s Bobby Wings challenge might be just for you. Here’s how it works: Go to any Wings location and order them up, but be warned—it requires you to sign a waiver before you begin eating (yes, it’s true). Successful challengers will be entered in a draw to win Wings gift certificates, Canucks prize packs and a chance to be featured on the Wings’ Wall of Fame.https://www.instagram.com/p/BeqdflEAV2i/?hl=en&taken-by=great_wings
Score on Davie’s Checkmate Caesar is a towering drink of a whole roasted chicken, pulled-pork Sriracha-glazed slider, onion rings, chicken wings, mac-and-cheese hotdog and a brownie for dessert. A mere $60 gets you into this challenge, if you’re willing. The only caveat? It must be shared between two or more friends, and it isn’t available during Score’s Weekend Brunch.https://www.instagram.com/p/BEcM0E3MJ3z/?hl=en&taken-by=scoreondavie
Dundas Eat and Drink‘s “Six O Pho” is an un-pho-gettable five-pound bowl of Pho that contains heaps of beef brisket—and if you manage to finish the bowl in under 30 minutes, you’ll receive a free meal and a $100 gift card. The only catch? There are only six served per day, so plan ahead.https://www.instagram.com/p/BdQUuCdnx0-/?hl=en&taken-by=eatdundas
There’s a twist to Pearl Castle Cafe‘s classic Taiwanese Beef Noodle: it now comes in a colossal size especially for potential foodie challengers. Approximately four times the regular helping, winners of this $30-something food challenge earn major bragging rights (and a happy stomach). https://www.instagram.com/p/BiIsTahH_Pj/?hl=en&taken-by=pearlcastlecafe
