WE LOVE torturing poor souls with yummy temptations. While many of our friends are running marathons — putting their bodies and minds through physical and mental torture; we at FoodAdvisor Malaysia decided to jump into the bandwagon to torture your senses with our very own list of ‘Great Food Challenges’
Let the challenge begin!
(Pork-Free Restaurants are highlighted for the benefit of our Muslim friends!)
CHILLI RUSH – The Chilli Rush Challenge (Pork-Free)
Ever heard your friends say, “Ceh tak pedas pun, cam makan ais krim je!” or “Tat wan you call spicy ah? Aiyo lie dat u eat my cili padi u si beh die lo!”? If you have, make sure you invite them to The Chilli Rush Challenge. It is really the spiciest challenge around.
Even if you are not looking forward to burning your mouth with molten lava, Chilli Rush is a fantastic place for party meetups or a relaxing hangout. Serving juicy fried chicken wings with varying degrees of heat (level 1 to level 10), Chilli Rush has spice levels for everyone!
Tips: Order a really cold drink (like iced milk), an ice-cream, or even an ice-cold beer.
Things to Expect: Fiery explosion in your mouth, temporary taste bud paralysis, extreme sweating and extreme heat when you visit the Golden Throne.
Best with (recommended): Selections of draft beer
Price: About RM50
Address: 93-G, Block H, Jaya One, No 72A, Jalan Universiti, 46200 Petaling Jaya, Selangor Darul Ehsan.
Phone No.: 03-79607368
Operation Day & Hours: Mon – Sat 11.30am-11pm
EURO DELI – The Matterhorn Challenge (Porky)
In some menus, the burgers look so satisfyingly big; but upon serving, they tend to have magically shrunken into a “burger made for ants”. At Euro Deli, however, it is quite the opposite. The picture of the Matterhorn might look tiny to some on the menu; but you can expect a large angry yummy hulk of a burger. If you do gulp down the Matterhorn within 45 minutes, you’ll walk away with a prize of RM100!
Tips: Do this only when you’re very hungry or have a big appetite. To register, please call 03-77267495.

Delicious sausages can later be washed down with a pint of beer.
