Get stuck in to restaurant’s mixed grill challenge
FEELING hungry? Well, a Welsh restaurant has launched a mammoth mixed grill challenge – containing 60oz of meat. The Dragonfly, in Merthyr Tydfil, is inviting food lovers to take on its mega mixed grill challenge where if you complete the challenge, you won’t have to pay a penny.
To do so, you’d need to take on a whopping 60oz of meat – including a 10oz rump steak, two 10oz gammon steaks, four sausages, two beef burgers, two half chickens and two lamb chops – along with four eggs, 18oz of chips, two tomatoes, six onion rings, some peas and finally, some rocket salad.
And it all has to be eaten within 45 minutes.
Amanda Green, from The Dragonfly, said: “We really hope someone can take it on. We announced it [on Thursday] and we’ve had so many calls already. We only started taking bookings today, but we’ve had loads of people interested.
“We’ve just launched our new menu, which includes the Mega Grill, and manager Paul Simons came up with the idea of com- bining two Mega Grills to make the challenge.
“It was completely his idea, but everyone loves it. Since we posted it on Facebook it’s been seen by 26,000, and it’s had so much reaction.
“But if anyone does want to try it, we ask that they book or at least give us a heads up so we can make sure we have enough food in.”
Mixed grill champions will have a photograph posted on the restaurant’s Facebook page. Anybody can take part, and customers may be able to substitute some parts of the dish.
“If someone doesn’t like peas, they can change it for rocket or something, but apart from that everything needs to be eaten,” said Amanda. The rules are simple: All items must be eaten, and anyone found cheating will be disqualified.
This a single challenge, so you can’t be helped by anyone else.
You can drink what you want while doing the challenge, but they’re not included in the challenge so are charged at full price.
Items can be changed, but the manager has the final say.
If you fancy it, you can give The Dragonfly a call on 01685 268385.
