Eating a 2.5kg (5.5lb) Beef Shank is no small feat. Chris and Mark thought they'd have a crack at it, but didn't quite make it. There was still room in the dessert column though!


Everyone's ready to order

The boys start with Wings as an entree... not what I would have chosen, but oh well

Hmm these wings are kinda big...

Mark finished the entree with ease

Not much left there

Salads are served, but the boys become anxious waiting for their meals

SSS Side Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing

Mark is the first to receive the shank

He's suitably impressed!

Chris goes for the grab while Mark's not looking

That's a lotta meat!

A look of excitement, with a dash of fear

It's Bam Bam!

And it begins

David hops up for a look

Yep, almost the size of his head

I chose a more humble meal

That's still a lotta meat

The size of the bone is enormous

Bam! Bam! Bam!

Size comparison

That's a big bone

Mark gets prehistoric

Chris starts to hit the wall

The bowls in the middle are for scraps

Mark's hit the wall

Oh no! He's thrown in the towel, it's a white flag!!

Juddy's making the call!

And the waitress takes away the evidence

And that's it for Chris too...

He's in a beef-coma

Illy makes a guest appearance, and also decides to tackle the shank (more photos from him soon!)

Illy does the shank with ease

All roads lead to the 2.5kg Beef Shank!

Even though they didn't complete the challenge, a fun night was had by all. I'm guessing that this won't be the last attempt by Chris or Mark ;)
