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.

The Dragon­fly’s mixed grill chal­lenge in­cludes a 10oz rump steak, two 10oz gam­mon steaks, four sausages, two beef burg­ers, two half chick­ens and two lamb chops – along with four eggs, 18 ounces of chips, two toma­toes, six onion rings, some peas and fi­nally, some rocket salad
