This Mexico eatery has an eating challenge that only one man could meet in last 50 years
Mexico City, Feb 28: We all love sandwiches, isn't it? Anybody throwing a challenge at us on polishing off a mouth-watering piece of sandwich will certainly lose the bet unless of course we have a running stomach. But here is a restaurant in Mexico City that throws a challenge related to sandwich that only one person has succeeded in meeting in last half a century!
According to a report in LadBible, the restaurant, Tortas Don Juan, recently increased the cash prize for the challenge which is to eat a monstrous sandwich in less than 30 minutes' time to draw more people to give it a go.
Earlier, the eatery had offered a prize money of £99 (Rs 9,373) for eating its torta cubana sandwich weighing three kilograms in just half an hour or less. Now, the prize money has been raised to £118 (Rs 11,173) to allure more triers.
To make it a successful mission, one has to eat through several layers of beef, ham, egg, cheese, sausage, breaded meat and what not! And believe it or not, a thin person named Luis Uriel in Mexico's Oaxaca is the only man to have completed the job successfully last August.
Julio Rodriguez, the restaurant's owner, said: "He told us he'd seen the challenge on the internet and came here to see if he would be able to do it."
Uriel went on to win the cash prize but his feat hasn't been matched by anybody else.
