Las Vegas Hilton hosts the Worlds Largest Buffet with 510 items
While technically it's not a "meal", many parts make a whole, right? And lets face it, any big eater loves a good buffet, so I couldn't pass up the chance to post these photos! The Las Vegas Hilton and Alka Seltzer (celebrating their 75th anniversary) have officially created the Worlds Largest Buffet, consisting of 510 different dishes.
From: http://www.alkaseltzer.com and http://www.lvhilton.com/
From BBQ ribs to salmon Wellington, chimichangas and fried alligator, there will be hundreds of dishes representing more than four courses, including:
100 different salads such as Thai noodle, Caesar, Waldorf, tuna nicoise, crab and shrimp louie, curried chicken and couscous
40 varieties of hot and cold soup including gazpacho, southwest seafood chowder, roasted squash bisque, lobster bisque, split pea, borscht, and five choices of chili
More than 12 types of meat, 10 seafoods and 50 unique cold items
150 dessert choices including crème brulee, churros, pistachio truffles, homemade apple pie, NY style cheesecake and German chocolate cake
Man creates giant kebab
Apparently this one was created back in 2001. I wonder if it would've tasted better served at 2am after way too many beers...
A Greek restaurant owner has broken the record for the world's largest kebab. Costas Dasios from Patras made the pork kebab weighing 1,850kgs on a 1.73-metre steel skewer, according to the Kathimerini newspaper.
The Worlds Largest Cinnamon Roll
Yes, it’s official! On Feburary 10, 2006, Wayne and Anita Warren, owners of “The House of Bread” in Mill Creek, Washington received their certificate from the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest cinnamon roll ever made! Weighing in at 111.8kg’s (246.5lb’s), they served the roll to local residents, and raised over $1400 for Hopelink, a local charity
On October 15, the roll was baked in the presence of officials from the State Department of Agriculture who certified its edibility and weight. The public was invited to view the construction, baking, removal from the oven, icing, weighing and finally, serving. Contributions to Hopelink totalled over $1400 - Thank you!

|Pizza Size:|| 6 ft|
|Circumference:||227 inches or 19 feet|
12-pound Canadian Emperor Crab
One of our anonymous readers sent this one in today. A massive 12 pound Canadian Emperor Crab. At $30/pound, it wasn't cheap, but hey, it's all in the name of Supersized Meals!
We were eating dinner at one of our favorite Chinese places in Chinatown (no, I'm not going to say where), when Guy asked me to step outside with him for a minute before our hotpot arrived. We walked across the street, stopped at the bank to pick up some cash, and then came face to face with the monster.
The Wally Burger, Palatka, FL
A little like "The Fat Bastard Burger",
The "Wally Burger" consists of three, one pound slabs of ground beef stacked on top of each other, squished between two regular-sized buns. Cheese is an option.
Prior to this news story, only one person had completed this meaty feat. Caleb Stamps. That was until hearty news reporter Victor Blackwell thought that he'd give it a go as part of the story. And what a story it was!
The calorie count is astronomical, somewhere in the 7,000 range. The $15 burger is on the house if you eat it and the pound of fries that come with it. If not, dig deep. Wally says seven or eight people have tried the Wally Burger challenge, but no one made it to the finish line, until Caleb Stamps walked in the door last week.
The Hot Dog Rollup, Outdone!
You may have already heard of "The Hamdog".
Well this is pretty similar, the Hot Dog Rollup. "Beef and Pork, wrapped in pork, wrapped in more pork, wrapped in cheese, wrapped in beef and pork and egg!!!" Hahah... Heart attack city! Even the pics show these humble creators clutching their chests.
The Hot Dog Rollup has met its match: A few months back, I happened to browse acrost this thread: http://www.gbsfood.com/1523572/,
abit later, this one: http://www.gbsfood.com/1555320/, and awhile after, this thread: http://www.gbsfood.com/1607706/ What did they all have in common? Besides gratuitous amounts of Vitamin G? Oh yeah thats right I remember now.. I knew I could whoop ass all over those sorry excuses for heart attacks...
Pa. Pizzeria Goes for Record-Size Pizza
originally posted this story in, but it didn't have any photos. I managed to find one from the Washington Post that had a photo. I like photos...
PITTSBURGH -- A pizzeria is vying for a spot in Guinness World Records for the world's largest commercially available pizza. The $99, 150-slice pizza isn't a one-time deal. In fact, The Big One is already available, though Mama Lena's Pizza House has had few takers so far.
Chris tries "The Speck Burger", Seabrook Tavern, Topeka, KA
Even though these photos were taken back in 2003, there's a certain amount of timelessness when it comes to eating challenges. While I personally wouldn't wear what he was wearing, the challenge remains.... eat the 3lb Speck Burger by himself with fries in 45 minutes and it's free!
Eat a 3-Pound Speck Burger all by yourself, including all the french fries that come with it, and down it all in 45 minutes or less, and we'll give it to you free of charge.
Giant Jaffa Cake, the English way!
One of our anonymous readers sent this in. It's a giant "Jaffa Cake". What is a Jaffa Cake you may ask? It's not really what I'd call a cake, it's the size of a regular biscuit. Read the Wikipedia definition here.
It's basically a sponge biscuit, topped with an orange jam, then covered in a chocolate coating. Sarah thought she'd give a giant Jaffa Cake a go....
Jaffa Cakes are super. The dry and chewy sponge, the moist and tangy orangey bit, the tasty chocolate-effect coating, all coming together to make a unique biscuit/cake experience. Since becoming a filthy hippy vegan, I have missed Jaffa Cakes greatly. The orangey bit is made with hooves, the cakey bit is made with chicken's periods, alas, it seemed that never again would I taste their Jaffa glory. Until this thought struck me: What if I could make my own Jaffa Cakes, ones which didn't contain animal ingredients? AND I could make a big one, the size of a normal cake, that you could slice up and serve for tea! Oh, this would be a project like no other. This would be a unparalleled feat of bakery. But I could undertake it, I could conquer the giant Jaffa Cake. This would not just be cookery, this would be ART!
