Jack Devora debuts at Curious Mega with monstrous snack; see and opine
A monstrous snack. But "monstrous" is only an adjective that represents a force of expression, for the monster, in fact, may be the devourer of this above-mentioned snack, this one that writes you.
Exactly, the Curious Mega is in charge of climbing this Bruno Micali here, who is said to be similar to actor and musician Jack Black, for a stiffer challenge than the last stages of Pac-Man: eating a snack of five hamburgers, each with 150 grams, and almost 30 cm in height. The writer Víctor Teixeira, who sets an example of health and fitness, accompanied the glutton to give that moral support.
The name of the giant sanduba is Ezequiel, the biggest draw on the Big Kahuna snack menu, located at Alameda Lorena, 53, in the upscale Jardim Paulista region of São Paulo. The snack, separated by "floors", costs $ 90 and has a skewer that looks more like a miniature sword to hold all meats.
In all, there are 750 grams of meat alone, not to mention the ingredients that come with a sandwich of this caliber: long slices of bacon, cheese plate, cheese plate, onion rings on top, boiled onion, mayonnaise and salad. This all easily totals 1 kg of food.
It's almost a PF, just not
The snack is a hit on the Big Kahuna menu. Renato de Carvalho Veras Junior, owner of the establishment - who also lends his talent for the kitchen - said Ezequiel has always been a highlight at the venue, but has seen a sudden success in recent months. To give you an idea, there are an average of 300 to 400 sandwich orders per week.
“Everyone who comes here looks for the snack. It's a success, it's coming out on TV, on websites, people get curious. During Burger Fest, we even made 400 snacks in one day. It's impressive, ”the local owner told Mega Curioso.
The sandwich, when laid on the plate, practically turns into a PF - but the concept of "snack" is lost. So blow your chest and eat with your hands, boy!
Meat quality is a little star in Big Kahuna's notebook homework. Prepared daily, orders always arrive in the morning and are never postponed until the next day. So there is no “meat from the fridge” here: the hamburgers are fresh and taste homemade without that industrial flavor that eventually affects snacks like that. The place, by the way, is absolutely themed by Quentin Tarantino, having special inspiration in the movie "Pulp Fiction", with a tasteful and providential decoration for the food served.
The same goes for cheese, bacon and the other ingredients: all are freshly prepared and served with subtle spices without exaggeration. It's really a craft thing. In fact, bacon is loin bacon, which has a more consistent texture, very red and soft. Divine.
The manager of the establishment, France, accompanied Mega Curioso during the project and also highlighted the success of Ezequiel. “It's happening every week [filming in the cafeteria]. We close the place, just as we did with you, and serve the snack. Some can handle it, some can't. It's a success, thank God, ”he said.
Challenge given and fulfilled!
The video and gallery above say more than these words. I held the snack, survived and was almost two days without eating later. And oh, the customer gets a fully personalized t-shirt by ordering from Ezequiel, as you can see in the pictures and footage. But I must confess: (small) part of the bacon was left on the plate. Good thing the drums, my instrument of passion, is something that burns good calories. It was my "Rock School" after this monstrous snack ...
