Challenge Yourself to Eat All You Can
It's ingrained in us to be competitive gluttons, but just how far can you go? Not only will you earn for yourself legendary status among your friends forever, you also get to eat for free - if you win these challenges. It's time to meet the most monstrous Singapore food challenges ever created.
If you've ever wanted to prove you are a bottomless pit, this list of food challenges will satisfy the masochistic foodie in you.
1. The 1kg Terminator @ Dempsey Roadhouse
The Terminator ($58) is a towering burger of 6 Wagyu Beef patties, layered with cheese, pieces of bacon and caramelised onions; with coleslaw and fries. Wolf it down in less than 20 minutes and the burger will be on the house.
Think that's hard? Our buddy Melicacy will put all grown men in their place. The fact that this 48kg girl did it in 16 minutes should inspire you to give this a try.
Address: 13 Dempsey Road Singapore 249674
Opening Hours: Monday - Friday: 10.30am - 10pm | Saturday & Sunday: 9am - 10pm
2. The Beast Burger
The Beast Burger Challenge is wolfing down a whopping 7-pound burger consisting of slaw, pork, and fried chicken atop a generous, juicy beef patty, in between two buttery hot buns and sweet potato fries. NOBODY HAS BEATEN THIS CHALLENGE. If you do, the meal is on them. Just remember to pre-order!
We found out about this challenge when reviewing The Beast, who are also known for being a cool Southern Themed Bar. Think fried chicken on top of waffles. You have to see it to believe it.
Address: 17 Jalan Klapa Singapore 199329
Opening Hours: Monday - Thursday: 5pm - Midnight | Friday & Saturday: 5pm - 1am | Closed on Sundays
3. Todai Singapore Spice Challenge

TODAI has brought back their Alaska Crab Festival and this time spice things up with a Spicy Roll Eating Contest in the month of July and August. This isn't as cool as the other challenges but it's easier and you get to win vouchers. If you are a fan of sushi and spices, dining vouchers will be yours to keep after you complete Level 4 of spiciness.
The lunch challenge starts at 12.30pm. Dinner starts at 7.30pm - inform the staff beforehand, as space is limited.
Address: The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands #B2-01
Opening Hours: Monday - Friday (Lunch): 11.30am - 3pm, (Dinner): 5.30 - 10pm | Saturday (Lunch): 11.30am - 3pm, (Dinner): 5pm - 10.30pm | Sunday: All-day dining 11.30am - 10pm
4. Little Hiro Eternal Glory

Previously known as Burger Shack and known for their new Ramen Burgers, Little Hiro too has a burger challenge. The $25 meal of 8 patties and 500g fries will be on the house if you win the Superhiro Challenge by beating the fastest timing. Which makes this pretty hard to beat since the timing keeps improving.
We found out about this challenge when we reviewed Little Hiro. It's a cool gem of a restaurant in Bukit Timah.
Address: 559 Bukit Timah Road, #01-01 King's Arcade, S269695
Opening Hours: Sunday - Thursday: 11.30am - 9.30pm | Friday & Saturday: 1130am - 10pm
5. Sunset Grill and Pub
Relocated from Seletar Airbase, Sunset Grill and Pub is now at the convenient spot along Jalan Kayu shophouses. Their notorious Level 35 Spicy Wings are still up for challenge - the smell alone will make you start crying. I just hope the challengers come out alive - it's not always about free food. Such levels of spiciness could actually harm your body.
Address: 259 Jalan Kayu Singapore 799488
Opening Hours: Daily 4pm - 11pm | Closed on Tuesday
6. Southwest Tavern Suicide Wing Challenge

Nothing sounds better than suicide wings and a cold beer on this tropical island. Southwest Tavern is offering that for free, if you can complete Suicide Wings Challenge in 15 minutes.
In addition, you'll get a feature in their hall of fame and a free bottle of hot death sauce. One of the more realistic challenges out there which won't totally annihilate every cell in your body.
Address: 8 Boon Lay West Singapore 609964
Opening Hours: 11am - Midnight daly
7. Burger VS Wings + Bar

You're your own worst enemy, but it's always fun competing side by side with other like-minded competitors. The BWB Knockout Challenge is where you conquer either the wings or burgers faster than your opponent. You don't eat for free but you get 50% of your bill. It is a lot easier then a lot of the challenges here and there is more variety in their challenges.
We found out about this challenge when we reviewed Burger vs Wings bar.

Opening Hours: Daily: 11.30am - 3pm, 5.30pm - 11pm

Address: 18 Raffles Quay Singapore 048582
9. Lagnaa Barefoot Dining's Chilli Challenge
