Recently, there has been a lot of buss over on the LA board about one of our fellow chowhounder 'Chandavki' aka David Chan's accomplishments!. His feat of eating in over 6297 Chinese Restaurants and having the experience documented has attracted even the attention of the media!
Out of curiosity, what other 'Incredible Eating Feat' have some of you encountered that is worth a mentioning??!!
In my case, I have the honor of working with a real gourmand in Paris ( an Aussie at that!! ) in the early 90's. His feat?!! ATE AT EVERY SINGLE MICHELIN STAR RESTAURANTS IN FRANCE!!!! Now, that, IMO, is mighty incredible too!!
Wow, 6297 Chinese restaurants and every Michelin star restaurant in France - quite the feats! I've never attempted anything of that nature but what a wonderful experience for you both. I'm sure you have great stories to tell.
There are some lesser known folks, but are known in the Chinese, Japanese, and Taiwanese media...one guy in particular I recall watching on Japanese TV on Taiwanese cable a few years ago, his quest was to try every ramen restaurant in Japan, eating pretty much a bowl of ramen for each meal (so yes breakfast, lunch, and dinner). I think he was at least 75% of the way through, but this was several years ago.
There is another guy in Japan who has claimed to have eaten 4308 different kinds of instant noodles since 1997 and keeps a website. I'm sure his stomach lining will be very well preserved once he's mummified.
