New extreme food challenge set to seriously test chilli-heads (as well as sooky la-las!!!)
Traralgon, Victoria April 24, 2019:
Last year, Arriba Cantina’s “The World’s Hottest Nachos” went viral and helped put Traralgon on the international map for extreme food challenges….a challenge so extreme, it saw some participants missing work for up to 3 days afterwards!
This month Arriba Cantina are doing it all again!! Arriba are celebrating their 2nd birthday with the launch of the “Big Bad Burrito”, a burrito twice the size of a regular burrito, weighing in at just over 1kg!!!
The “Big Bad Burrito” is not just big…..but also devilishly spicy!! The burrito contains half a bottle of Bunster’s “Sh@t the Bed” hot sauce (rated 12/10!), a sprinkling of “The World’s Hottest Corn Chips” which, on their own, pack a whopping 1.5 million Scoville punch, jalapenos, chilli flakes, meat, rice, beans, guacamole, pico de gallo, cheese and sour cream. (A vegan version is also available!)
Those who take on the challenge must first sign a waiver and protective gloves must be worn. All successful challengers stand to receive a “Big Bad Burrito” t-shirt or mug, get their photo on Arriba’s “Wall of Flame” and all the social media fame that comes with demolishing the “Big Bad Burrito”. The quickest times will also pick up an Arriba Cantina voucher!
And for those that can’t handle the heat….we’ve also got the “Big Baby Burrito”!! Another huge 1kg burrito challenge without all the spicy stuff!
The challenge is running over two weeks from Thursday April 25 to Tuesday May 7. Bookings are essential during this time! Arriba Cantina is ranked by TripAdvisor as Traralgon’s most popular Mexican restaurant, serving up street food-style burritos, tacos, totopos and more!
