For 25 years, Fat Boys Cafe [Croydon, London] has been serving up the Blow Out breakfast challenge. It consists of two sausages, six slices of bacon, a slice of fried bread, mushrooms, beans and 1.25kg of chips, and is thought to contain over 4,500 calories.
Of course, all that had to be finished in an hour.
According to the owner, only 1 in 40 challengers complete the meal with the rest being saddled with the £20 bill. As my breakfast was carried out to my table the atmosphere in the café electrified.
