This Is The UK's Biggest Mixed Grill And It Looks Terrifying
There are some meals that are so intimidatingly large, you'll only need to take one look before your hunger begins to evaporate in sheer panic. But if you're not put off by vast amounts of food, here's some good news: this mixed grill could be the dish for you.
Carrying a remarkable 9,000 calories, it could be the UK's largest mixed grill - it contains more than four kilograms of meat, including 20 chickens, half a lamb and three fish.
The aptly-named Killer Mixed Grill at Jack's Bar and Cafe in Wolverhampton includes 30 chicken wings, 16 pieces of chicken breast, 16 chicken nibblets, 24 fish pakoras and six lamb kebabs - with a mountain of chips and two buttery naan breads thrown in for good measure.
Well, and some salad too - but c'mon, is it really necessary?
The restaurant charges £50 ($65) for the whopper of a meat feast which becomes free if the plate is cleared - although so far only one of 50 challengers has succeeded. Can't say I'm all that surprised, to be perfectly honest.

It seems an insurmountable challenge - and one of the restaurant's two owners, Jimmy Deol, said he sees few people even attempt it. Do you really need to prove you can put away enough to spend fifty quid on half a lamb, more chicken than KFC and a few sly cucumbers though? I think not.
Jimmy said: "It's got to be the UK's biggest mixed grill. It takes only about 20 minutes to make, with roughly around six skewers of meat going into the clay oven. The fish is cooked separately with the pakora batter - it has to be deep fried.
"In order for someone to complete the challenge, they have to eat absolutely everything - including the naan bread."
They knew what they were doing when they added carbs, didn't they?
Due to the low number of success stories, Jack's opened the doors for couples to complete the challenge together.
And more than 130,000 food challenge fans have watched Facebook Live videos of people taking on the Killer Grill challenge. Plenty of opportunity for your meat sweats to be watched by the famously forgiving people of the Internet, then. Nice.
Jimmy added: "It seems it's too big for one person alone. I've only ever seen one couple be successful and eat the lot, and that's only out of the 50 that have dared to have a go.
"We've got into the habit of giving out certificates to our losers, with 'wimp' written across them. We've been sharing the disastrous attempts of people trying to eat it all on our social media, and it's certainly drummed up the interest."
