Beth's Cafe in Seattle, WA

Beth's Cafe in Seattle, WA

This is the 12-egg omlette at Beth's Cafe in Seattle, WA. It had bacon, sausauge, ham and 3 kinds of cheese inside. On top was a mound of crispy hash browns. Oh my god. Best thing I ever ate. I think it was called the Cardiac Attack or the Massive Corinary Bypass (something like this). I ate the whole thing quickly (no time limit or prize except self accomplishment). 960 1280

Avalanche Sundae

Avalanche Sundae

We took 10, 7-year-olds to the Kooky Canuck in Memphis for my son's birthday. This is the Avalanche Sundae (notice kid hiding on right) that they attempted to eat AFTER trying the 6-lb. hamburger (they almost finished it). My son created a "Kid v Food" logo and I transferred to T-shirts for all the kids to wear. Adam definitely influenced this decision! 960 1280

At a restaraunt in Superior, WI called Gronk's. They have a beast known as the Enger Tower Burger. It's 5-lbs. of delicious meat alongside a pound of fries! But, sadly, I was unable to scale the Enger Tower. Another round in the battle of Man vs. Food... Food won. 960 1280

The Fouled Anchor Challenge at Willy's Bar and Grill in Knoxville, TN. This challenge was introduced on the Fourth of July this year. I was there when they opened that day to attempt the challenge.

Each layer has a hamburger patty, two hotdogs, 3 kinds of cheese, shaved turkey, shaved ham and bacon on Texas toast. 960 1280
