Just how I came to volunteer to take part in The El Diablo Burrito Challenge at Slanted Taco this weekend as part of their 2019 Cinco de Mayo Fiesta is nothing more than a haze of alcohol from a Wednesday night at the Booze Buffet.
If I said I’d do it drunk I now need to live with that and show up at 7pm Sunday with a steel stomach and an asbestos-lined mouth.
This is not for the faint of heart, the contest challenges you to eat a 1-kilo burrito spiced with a Scoville rating of 300,000.
It’s filled with Pork Carnitas, Grilled Beef, Chorizo Fresco, Roasted Chicken, Green Chilies, Jalapeño Chilies, Rice, Beans, Bell Pepper, Onion, Lettuce, and Slanted Taco’s special spicy El Diablo sauce.
Can I scoff this scorcher in under 15 minutes? I reckon yeah, I can do it.
If you want to watch me in action, or better still, challenge me, then come on down to Slanted Taco on Soi 23 this Sunday evening.
