Since the TableCrowd blog; Egalitie, Fraternity, And A Slice Of Cheddar: On London Burgers was published last week, I have made it my mission to take on ‘The Devastator Burger’ at Red Dog Saloon on Hoxton Square. I will be rallying some troops and encouraging them to join me on a Man Vs Food style challenge in the very near future – well, after a month or two of solid preparation and marathon training!
The “Red Dog Saloon” in Hoxton distinguishes itself through the values of pigging-out and competitive eating; their three-tier Devastator Burger looks to be of about the same size and nutritional content of Marlon Brando!’
In my quest, I decided to seek competitive advantage over my peers by tracking down a small selection of blogs relating to the Devastator Burger. Of course, the whole motive behind my search is a selfish one. Previous challengers have shared some great insights and some useful tips in how to make it a successful date with Gluttony. Anyway, if you’re thinking of taking on this mammoth quest, take note of these guys, you could learn a lot:
‘Primed and ready, David and I did some Challenge prep by stretching and loosening our belts a notch. Next time, we’ll wear sweat pants or loose fitting athletic shorts.’ via Joe The Explorer.
“I settled for a ‘Punisher’, which looked like a kids meal in comparison. I made up for the calorie difference by ordering an Oreo milkshake too.” via Accordion Apparel.
“A quick bit of James Bond-style investigation on the challenge confirmed the worst; that it wasn’t just the burger that needed to be consumed in 10 minutes.” via The Funky Truth.
‘This is not going to go well. Look at me, ferchrissakes. I look like Mr Muscle impersonating Jack Whitehall!’ via TimeOut London.
So, if these blogs have inspired you take on the Devastator Burger as well, then why not think about starting your own ‘Table’ or better still your own ‘Crowd’, then you can share your experiences and excitement with other TableCrowd members.
If you successfully win on the burger challenge, please share it with us, if not don’t bother (chuckles) … Good Luck!
