    I went to a restaurant in Charleston after seeing it on Man vs Food. It wasn't one of the challenge ones but just a restaurant that did a modern take on traditional southern cooking.

    It was an amazing meal even if I'm still not sure what grits are made of. Boiled peanuts as an appetiser were also surprisingly nice.

    I used to enjoy the Market Diner Gutbuster after a fashion girls fundraiser at the Ocean Rooms when I was at uni, anyone of the Brighton lot know if it's still going?

    Several years ago my friend and I used to walk into town on a Sunday and go to Burger King for two double whoppers with cheese meals each. I only ever managed it once but he could do it fairly easily and yet he's a proper skinny bloke!

    A friend and I ate at Bodeans (Soho) once whilst drunk and ordered so much that the waiter said it was "like watching man vs food" so might be worth giving that a try?

    /slow clap.

    You didn't point out his spelling error though did you?

    I used to be a gamer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    It's horrible when fried in vegetable oil but butter or pork dripping are seriously YUM!

    What is horrible is the Yorkshire tradition of "mucky fat". Take the drippings from the bottom of a tray that's been used to cook a chicken or sunday roast then spread that on toast :-/

    Yeah was just checking :)

    People say ignore but they don't do it.

    Plus I have no idea who he/she/it is.


    Edit: oh he's a Bagcunt I'm sure the patter of their tiny feet will come running soon enough and inform him/her/that.

    Anyway bread fried in butter is a crouton! More, or less.

    I made that dish for myself after watching the episode - I used rice instead of grits though (as I don't know how to make that). It was quick to make, tasty and filling. Not sure about the Big Nasty though...

    I've just seen this on HUKD.



    It's a 72oz steak at a pub in Newbury, eat it within an hour and it's free.

    ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Adam got a shit load of abuse on twitter last night for saying he wouldn't do that challenge, no respect for UK food etc.

    This despite saying that he was coming over to showcase uk food, had had enough of doing eating challenges and that the fry up was 10lb of horrible.

    To be fair, that steak does look disgusting, although Adam has no right criticising anything the amount of disgusting rubbish I've seen hime at then say is amazing, when it's clearly just grease drenched grossness (not everything on MvF is disgusting but so much of it is)

    If you did want an amazing, giant steak then the Hawksmoor let you order by size, you can get a 1kg-1.5kg porterhouse http://thehawksmoor.com/food/menus and their triple cooked chips are out of this world. It is a bit pricey though....

    THIS is the Kidz Breakfast — so named as it weighs as much as a BABY.
    So why are they calling it the Kiz Breakfast in the photo tag line?

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    The menu on the Jesters Diner website does call it a Kidz, it seems. It's the same one I linked to a page or so back

    @elstoof

    I was going to suggest the market diner! it is still going but has had new ownership for a little while. The gutbuster is big but pretty manageable. If you want a challenge i suggest the mega buster! same as the gutbuster fry up but DOUBLE everything!

    Yeah, I was just highlighting the editorial quality at The Sun, as if it needed it.

    For big eats, try Cafe Paradiso near Covent Garden. I thought I was going to die when I last went there, and that was only after the starter

    I just don't see the point in eating until you want to explode. It's.... uncomfortable.

    There is always rodizio rico  which is a brazilian bbq place. The concept is that they have various meats and different cuts of meat ( aprox 20 ) and they will come to your table and carve you meat onto yoir pate. They will only stop if you turn over your card. This along with a buffet of various brazillian dishes too for around 25 quid. Its a great pig.out place, i think adam would love it lol

    This sounds like heaven!

    It is damn good :-) and  very good cocktails, altho a bit on the pricy side. More steak, sir? Hell yes.

    I've been there twice. It's great. Chicken hearts and massive skewers of meat with bits of melted cheese in them. Awesome stuff.

    There is a salad bar, but I think only the weenies hang around there.
