Have a break, have a kit kat. NO. Have a Devastator… If you’re up to the challenge.
As part of ‘The Devastator Challenge’, the waiter will instruct you to ‘eat an 8 inch tall burger, fries and a milkshake within 10 minutes‘ to win the respect of your onlookers but most importantly get the meal for free. Failure carries a £30+ fine! He took one look at us and strongly discouraged us to even think about it, we thanked him for being an honest man and his wisdom for holding no boundaries.
Many have attempted but only a few succeeded, all of them being men and apparently the fastest completion time to beat was 4 minutes. Come on ladies, we have to step up to the plate in the name of equality.
Before the 48 hour fast for your big day, I strongly recommend reading this article first, it will give you a good idea of what you’re up against. Never mind the law degree or your new promotion, this is your greatest achievement in life ever if you succeed.
The Daily Mail calls it the tallest burger in London, what held between 2 skewers to maintain the burger’s centre of gravity was… (are you ready for it) 3 6oz patties, 200g pulled pork, 6 rashers of bacon and 6 slices of American cheese. We only ordered the burger this time to see if we could achieve a 1/4 of the unthinkable and to our surprise the burger didn’t taste half bad. The best part was the sweet and tender pulled pork however the worst was a soggy bottom bun from soaking in all the salad and meat juice.
The Devastator £22.75
As we cut into the burger, the melted cheese and grease flowed like hot lava. This was what was to enter our circulatory system, if it ever makes past digestive transit.
In conclusion, it was fun witnessing the tallest burger in London and we stomached it but perhaps being the best in town was still up for debate and we’re on the fence about paying £22.75 for the burger only (no chips/sides/nada).
We promise healthier reviews will be coming very soon! But first…the Truck Stop at Canary Wharf 4th and 5th of July.
