Here's a story about a lad who decided to bow to peer pressure, and take the "King of Spain's" 100oz steak challenge in front of his workmates. The story is long, but a funny read about the challenges of eating such a mammoth slab of meat.... read on!
How I Turned Vegan
It all started some time back in June 2003. A bunch of us from work went on a team building camping trip to the Forest of Dean for a weekend. It was a good laugh but we made the mistake of eating, on the Saturday night, at a little pub near Symonds Yat Rock called The King of Spain. This pub is reknowned for it's steaks and the menu has a wide variety to choose from. They also have a little board on the wall that tells you a special 100oz steak can be ordered in advance, for those with a bigger appetite. Also attached to the board is a photograph of the last guy who ate it. It's a nice shot of this doe-eyed, medium-build forty-something in a tracksuit poised over the biggest lump of charred meat you've ever seen. For me, seeing this photo was like the greyhound spotting the hare. I knew there and then, I had to have it.
