Eli's 2500lb Cheesecake
Yep, 2500lb's apparently! Have only managed to find the one picture, but I'm working on getting some more...
On June 25 at 1 p.m., Eli's Cheesecake celebrates Eli's and Taste of Chicago's 25th anniversaries at Buckingham Fountain with a 2,500-pound birthday cheesecake! Guests are invited to join in as 25 surprise celebrities, singing Happy Birthday, cut the cheesecake to share with all present.
Defcon 13 and the 35 Patty Burger
Every year, a bunch of IT guys get together for what's known as "Defcon
", a hacker convention talking about hardware and software hacks/mods/techniques, and other fun stuff. Last year at Defcon 13, one guy was challenged to eat a 35 Patty In 'n' Out Burger to raise funds for The Hacker Foundation.
It a tough job, but someone's gotta raise those funds!

Lowenbrau's giant pork schnitzel, The Rocks, Sydney
A relatively large schnitzel from a place in Sydney, Australia, called "Lowenbrau Keller". Not too bad for AU$27, considering the location. Could be bigger, but worth a mention...
Lowenbrau is, of course, down at The Rocks, an area more commonly frequented by American tourists and busloads of Chinese businessmen. I'd been past the Lowenbrau plenty of times, but the idea of lederhosen, busty wenches and Oktoberfest-merriness always seemed to have the words Tourist Trap plastered all over it.
guns and the McDonalds Eating Challenge
These 4 lads decided to set their own McDonalds eating challenge. Between the 4 of them, they tried to consume 88 menu items consisting of 16 Large Drinks, 16 Sundaes, 16 Large Fries, 8 Big Macs, and 32 Cheeseburgers. I wonder if the person at the counter tried to Upsell them?
The Eatza 30 minute Pizza Challenge
The lads from Urban Honking
decided to have an eating challenge at their local "Eatza Pizza"
place. The time limit: 30 minutes. The prize: The coveted "Chompy the Shark" Eating Challenge Trophy.
Chompy is the Eating Challenger Shark Trophy. Only one man (or woman) can posses Chompy, because in addition to his name, these words are written on his side, "I am an eating champion", and there can only be one champion. Today was the first of many eating challenges, an all you can eat pizza buffet at Eatza Pizza.
Mystery Burger in Japan?
Found this one on Flickr.... If you can read Japanese, and know what it says, or know where this place is, please let us know in the comments! Would love to know where you can get one of these!
The Giant Jumbo Pizza Slice, Koronet Pizza, New York
[Updated 8 Sep 06 - 2 new pics!]
You'd expect there to be some supersized Pizzas in New York, and this place is no exception. Not surprisingly, Koronet Pizza had to order in custom pans to make these monstrosities!
Went out to Koronet Pizza the other day - haven’t been back for sometime. Koronet Pizza is located at 110th street and Broadway just conveniently 6 blocks south of Columbia University (also a few blocks south of Caffee Swish). Koronet is really the King of pizzas and they’re famous for their jumbo giant pizza slices. For $2.75 you basically get the equivalent of 2 pizza slices as compared to delis throughout the city.
The Doughboys Sandwich, Los Angeles, CA
Bigger than your average, and looks pretty tasty too. Doughboys
makes this one... starlen
only managed to finish the end bit!
Giant Paella, Argeles-sur-Mer, Southern France
Usually one associates camping with tinned food, stale bread, and weather permitting, BBQ's and beer. Apparently not so in Southern France. At this particular campsite
, they do things supersized! This Giant Paella was created at "Campings Club" in Argeles-sur-Mer in southern France. Check out the size of the wooden spoon! Biggest EVAR!
Supersized Naan at Bukhara, Delhi
This thing is massive! Apparently there were 5 of them trying to finish it, they only got half way... Top effort though making something that huge!
here comes ours (^o^) freshly baked & I think it took about 10-15 minutes to make and bake
