From burgers to chicken wings, Bristol has a plethora of potential eating challenges

With challenges ranging in difficulty there is something for everyone to sink their teeth into.

Here are five of our favorites…

The Grand Champion, Grillstock: Grillstock sits on Bristol’s fashionable Clifton Triangle, at the top of a big hill. The ‘Grand Champion’ challenge offers a free t-shirt and bottle of BBQ sauce to anyone who can complete it. For £28, competitors get beef, pork, chicken, ribs and more. Not cheap, but not easy, either. Go on, we dare you.

Napalm Pork, The Three Tuns: The Three Tuns used to be an old man’s pub near Bristol’s cathedral. Now, partnered with Meat & Bread, they are blazing a trail in spicy food. Napalm Pork is a heat challenge to be reckoned with. Tread carefully.

The Beast, Warren’s Gourmet Burger: The number of this beast is not 666, but 20. That is, £20 – a deposit if you can finish it, a forfeit if you can’t. The Beast is a monstrous 4.5lb burger, served with fries and coleslaw. Everything must go, right down to the last chip. Try it at Warren’s Gourmet Burger.

The Breakfast Challenge, Harry’s Cafe at Fowlers: Could this be the cheapest eating challenge of all time? The Breakfast Challenge at Harry’s is a mere £15 and comes with an apocalyptic quantity of food; eat it all and it’s free. Each challenger has one hour to consume six sausages, six rashers of bacon, six eggs, six black pudding, six hash browns, four slices of bread and butter, four slices of toast and butter, four pieces of fried bread, beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, chips and a cup of tea. Phew. Bring a sick bucket.

EL Triple, Mission Burrito: What’s better than a burrito? A 3lb burrito, that’s what. Or is it? Finish El Triple at Mission Burrito to win a limited edition t-shirt and a place in their hall of fame. Be sure to pick a larger than usual t-shirt; you’ll need it.
