In no particular order, your tasks are:
BRISBANE, QLD – Mega Pizza at Slice Pizza & Pasta
They say size doesn’t count, but that’s all that matters in this crazy task. Those with hollow legs and big appetites have 30 minutes to devour a 36-slice, 60cm pizza with your choice of toppings. In the six years the event has been running, only 10 people have claimed glory.
MELBOURNE, VIC – The Misty’s Diner Burger Task in Prahan
Featuring five burger patties, five slices of cheese, five slices of bacon, three buns AND a whole lot of fries, taking on this task is no mean feat. Finish your plate to win your place on the Misty’s Diner wall of fame.
SYDNEY, NSW – Jumbo Burrito Cantina in Surry Hills
Weighing in at over 1kg, the Jumbo Burrito on offer at Cantina Mexican in Surry Hills is not a task to be taken lightly. Tackle jalapenos, your choice of meat and salad wrapped up tightly ready for its next Mexican stand-off.
ADELAIDE, SA – Schnithouse, Adelaide
In 45 minutes, eat up a 1kg schnitzel with a side of chips and litre of beer. Anyone who conquers the task gets a cap, a mention on the wall of fame and free dessert.
PERTH, WA – THALICIOUS
See if you can take on this Thailicious dish, that is often too hot to handle! A spicy curry that’s been supercharged especially for the Ultimate Food Task isn’t for the faint hearted.
