5 even crazier food challenges in Newcastle
Waterford Lodge

Call us crazy, but here in Newcastle we love a good food challenge.

Following our original look at Newcastle’s craziest food challenges, we’re back with more mammoth burgers, chicken wings and an excess of ice cream.

Devils Buffalo Chicken Wings Challenge at Man vs Food

Man vs Food

Where better to start than with a restaurant named after the very TV show that started our obsession with food challenges? There are five challenge menus to choose from at Man vs Food, with only the brave signing the disclaimer and winners taking home the highly sought after t-shirt. If you’re feeling extra brave then attempt the Devils Buffalo Chicken Wings Challenge, 12 chicken wings covered in a secret very hot sauce. You’ll need goggles and gloves, you have been warned!

Dustbin Lid Challenge at Osbornes

Take on the Dustbin Lid Challenge at Osbornes in Jesmond and you’ll have 45 minutes to eat a baby rack of ribs, chicken wings, double beef burger, mug of chilli, two portions of fries and sides. Proud winners get themselves a place on the Wall of Fame, a winner’s t-shirt and a growler of beer.
