Would you eat this gigantic burger?
In Thailand’s capital city Bangkok, a hamburger joint has become internet-famous for a nearly 13 pound burger patty with fried onion rings, bacon and mayonnaise. YouTube personalities started challenging one another to try and finish it.
Among the poor fellows who managed to do it — but not within the time limit — was one guy who said, I will eat a burger at some point (in the future), but not any time soon.
Chris Steaks and Burgers is offering a 10,000 baht ($330) prize for anyone who can finish the mammoth snack in nine minutes – one baht for every calorie.
Owner Komdech Kongsuwan, who says it is the countrys biggest burger, dreamed up the contest after three customers managed the feat. New challengers are coming through the door every day.
