Houston loves its food. It also loves a good challenge. So, a couple of local restaurants combined the two and came up with contests so outrageous, only those who are hungry for victory (or just hungry in general) dare to compete. Take a look at the food challenges that have gone on around town.
Kung Fu Saloon, 5317 Washington Ave, (713) 864-0642;
What it is:
The 'Dank'-eating contest
The challenge: Down as many Danks (the 10-inch sandwich pictured above) as possible within 10 minutes.
The contestant that scarfs the mightiest amount of Dank will win. The top eight competitors will take part in the International Dank Eating World Championship at 4:20 p.m. on April 20.
An old-school tabletop arcade game, a Kung Fu Ninja Key Chain good for round-the-clock happy hour pricing and line-cutting powers.
