Are you up for the challenge?
Ever since Man V. Food burst onto our television screens in 2008, the world has been obsessed with eating challenges. Whether it be the hottest chicken wings, the most stacked ice cream sundaes or the world’s longest sandwiches, it appears there is an insatiable appetite for super-sized foods.
Park Rotana Abu Dhabi keeps the trend alive by introducing not one but two HUGE food challenges across their restaurants this month.
First up is popular hangout Cooper’s, known for its traditional British pub grub and laid back atmosphere. Available until 31 May ‘Cooper’s Burger Challenge’ encourages adventurous diners to tackle a giant 1.5 kg burger comprising two patties of premium American beef, cheddar cheese, gherkins, onions, tomatoes and lettuce, sandwiched between two freshly-baked buns and served with a portion of truffle fries. Finish the whole thing within 25-minutes and it’s on the house. If not, it’s AED 195.
Next up is Teatro, the Asian restaurant known for its theatrical dining experience and stylish decor. Taking centre stage until 31 August is the ‘Dim Sum Tower’, an exhaustive selection of 30 homemade Chinese dim sums stacked up high for your dining pleasure. There’s no time limit on eating this one, but the expansive selection of authentic shumai, gyoza and dumplings, either steamed or pan-fried, will set you back just AED 129.
So what are you waiting for? With super-sized burgers and towers of dim sum laden bamboo baskets up for grabs – let the games begin!
