A Hot Chilli Eating Contest Is Coming To Sydney Next Week

A Hot Chilli Eating Contest Is Coming To Sydney Next Week

Calling all iron stomaches in Sydney because a hot chilli eating contest is coming your way.

SoCal's Taco & Tequila Fiesta is a fantastic and incredible event that will be taking place on the city's North Shore from May 3.

It's a week long food and drink festival that will have something for everyone.

One of the main attractions will be the red-hot chilli eating contest, which takes place on Thursday (May 6).

Contestants will have to go through eight rounds of whacking a hot chilli in their gob and hoping to high heavens they're able to keep it down.

Each round will step up in hotness and there's no word on whether contestants will be given water, yoghurt or milk to help them in between rounds.

The last person standing after the eight rounds will be crowned the champion.


If that doesn't tickle your fancy then there are plenty of other things that will keep you entertained.

On the opening night there's a comedy set that will have you trying to hold your sides together. That's $10 for entry or you can up the ante and get a $40 ticket that comes with some food.

The second day of SoCal's Taco & Tequila Fiesta will see bottomless tacos. Yep - you read that right: all-you-can-eat tacos.

It's $35 per person and you can fill your boots for a whole hour. When booking you can choose between two slots, one at 5:30pm and another at 8pm.


Wednesday will see a tequila cocktail masterclass that costs $45 per person and the Friday will usher in the terrifying but incredible taco roulette.

When you order four or more tacos, the staff will chuck a whole lot of spice and heat in one of them and it'll be up to you to discover which one it is.

The final day of the festival (Saturday May 8) will be a taco and tequila feast. There are two sittings (5pm and 8:30pm) and you'll get treated to some delicious food and you can get a drinks package added on.
