Takeaway Challenges Customers To Eat Huge Burger In 20 Minutes
A UK takeaway has created a huge burger and is offering a £1,000 food voucher to anyone who can eat it in 20 minutes.
Kebabistan, in the Lancashire city of Preston, is challenging hungry locals to complete the huge meal after lockdown. I think we all know someone who could give it a good go.
Owner of the takeaway, Yunus Sevinik, created the massive dish, which measures at 14 inches, and he says he already has three contenders who want to give it a go.
The burger is the same size as a large pizza and will set you back £35 - apparently, it's already proving popular with customers.
The Turkish takeaway was opened two years ago and Yunus says he makes fresh food and only uses quality ingredients.
His jumbo burger is made of a massive 2kg of lamb, and is finished with cheese, salad, pickled cucumber and tomato, and he reckons it could feed up to 10 people.

Speaking to local news outlet LEP, he said: "People are ordering it. It's very popular now. "
He's been selling it for about three weeks now, but business at Kebabistan has been hit by coronavirus lockdown.
When restrictions were first brought in, he closed the restaurant for a week. He then re-opened a week later, but reduced his hours down to 2pm - 11pm and shuts for two days a week - Monday and Tuesday.
Yunus says lunchtime business has been hit hard, with lots of local businesses closed for during lockdown, meaning there are less workers around to buy food in the day..
Other items on Yunus's menu include 'munchie boxes' that included halloumi and grilled meats, as well as European style Turkish kebabs cooked using charcoal
He said: "This is my style. Whenever people ask me why are my prices a bit up I tell them I do home made, I don't buy cheap products."
As for the likely challenge contenders he said: "They say they can.. .I don't think so!"
But it looks like he may well have to hand that food voucher over. Last year he underestimated the appetite of a contender when he set a different challenge and prize. The last one was a two metre long wrap, but to his surprise, the winner ate it in nine minutes - truly inspirational.
