Man vs Food

This is one of those shows that makes you cringe but also sometime think well as bad as it looks I might actually try doing something like that. So that got me thinking can people list places where the restaurants do extreme things with food. ie very spicy, big portions, unusual foods.

Ok I will start. There is a place in Greater Manchester that does 10 eggs, 10 sausage, 10 bacon for breakfast. Plus beans and a few other bits.

  1. Omar's in Bradford does huge Naan breads, I think they hold some kind of title like biggest Naan in Yorkshire or something like that. Not sure it would be classed as fine dining (although it has its place and fills it well) but then I guess neither would a 10 of everything breakfast...

    1. Reminds me of the late Hovis Presley's perhaps best known one-liner:

      "Do you not find that bacon, sausage, egg, chips, black pudding, beans, mushrooms, tomatoes, fried bread and a cup of tea is almost a meal in itself really"

      Where's the Manc mega-brekkie then?
