Traveling to Bangkok?Then Try its ‘Biggest Burger’ Challenge

A Bangkok burger joint has become an internet sensation after YouTubers started challenging each other to eat its biggest meal – a near 6kg (13 pound) patty covered in fried onion rings, bacon and mayonnaise.

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 country’s biggest burger, dreamed up the contest after 3 customers managed the feat. New challengers are coming through the door every day.

Among them was Pakorn Porncheewangkoon, who failed to finish the burger in time. “I will eat a burger at some point (in the future), but not any time soon,” he said.

The beef version of the “6kg Burger” costs 2,500 baht ($82.75) and the pork one 3,500 baht ($115.86).
