Restaurant Serving 'Hottest Ribs In The World' That You Need To Sign A Waiver To Eat
| Last updated
If you like your food with an added element of danger, then this might be the one for you, as a restaurant in London is offering diners the chance to try the 'hottest ribs in the world'.
To mark US Independence Day this year, Little Creatures Brewery in King's Cross has added the spicy dish to its menu for a limited time only.
And if you fancy taking on the meal, which has been nicknamed the Rib Cage Reaper, you should take into consideration the fact that you will have to sign a waiver first.
Just in case you thought they were kidding when they said 'hot'.
But what gives the ribs their kick? Well, that would be the Carolina Reaper chilli, which at 2.2 million Scoville Heat units is officially the world's hottest chilli pepper and is infused into the dish's hot sauce.
It comes courtesy of the team at hot sauce makers Bull's-Eye, so they should know what they're talking about.
Those willing to tuck in will also get a pint of Voodoo Ranger Hazy IPA to help wash it down. Which is nice.
Bull's-Eye's chef Lawrence Ager said: "Bull's-Eye's the real deal when it comes to BBQ sauces, and we want to give you a meal out with your mates you'll never forget with the world's hottest ribs.
"We cook strong, meaning we don't shy away from heat - we already use the face-meltingly hot Carolina Reaper in one of our sauces so the Rib Cage Reaper's just taking it to the next, insanely spicy, level.
"If you're all about flavour over fire, try the Louisiana Chipotle or Kentucky Habanero ribs, bringing you that full, smokey, Bull's-Eye taste without the eye-watering heat."
The Rib Cage Reaper will set you back £15.75 and is only available for a limited time only (1 to 4 July).
This isn't the first time restaurants have offered diners the chance to test their mettle, though.
Last year, Burger Urge, a chain of restaurants across Australia, debuted its Double Decker Death Wish burger.
And as with the Rib Cage Reaper, customers had to sign a waiver before tucking in.
Burger Urge head chef Joel Chrystal said in a statement at the time: "With Covid-19 making 2020 possibly the worst year on record for most, we debated whether it was the right time to bring back the Double Decker Death Wish burger - particularly after the world had already suffered through a toilet-paper shortage."
The burger came with two Australian grass-fed beef patties, bacon, jalapeños, cheese, tomato, lettuce, pickles, aioli and something called 'Death Sauce'.
I mean, anything with 'death' in the name sounds worrying, but this special sauce is apparently 700 percent hotter than a normal jalapeño.
Burger Urge also had something called 'Atomic Hybrid Chillies' - a combination of Carolina Reaper, Trinidad Scorpion Moruga, Jolokia, Apocalypse Scorpion, Borg 9 and Jay's Peach Ghost Scorpion.
As well as the waiver, the restaurant also provided diners with gloves and goggles to ensure parts of your body were kept clean from the ungodly burn of the chillies.
