The Kraken Burger in Bristol 6

This is a user submitted challenge, thanks Will.

The Hobgoblin in Bristol offers a pretty monumental eating challenge – The Kraken.

You have to get through a triple bypass burger (3 7oz burgers, 2 hash browns, a load of pulled pork and cheese), 15 chicken wings, a huge portion of dirty, dirty fries (chips with cheese and pulled pork) and a big pile of coleslaw, all with additional sauces, in under 45 minutes. If you make it, you get a t-shirt and the meal is free, if not then its £25 and probably a lot of shame. So far, it stands at 64 failures, 1 winner.

I’ve done a few challenges and am pretty good at eating, but this one looks dangerous. I’ve shared a (normal size) portion of dirty fries between 3 and come out full…….. You can order it between a group though, makes it a pretty reasonable meal for 5.

The contract you sign probably sums it up best – ‘I agree that I am an idiot and that nobody has forced me to eat such a stupid ammount of food’

I found some pictures and more information from their facebook page. It weighs 5lbs 10 oz. Thats probably too much for me too handle.




If you want to have a try, here are the details. I’ll pass on this one though. I agree with Will, this one looks dangerous.

    Just an FYI you can’t order it to share. Everything on it can be ordered on its own but the Kraken as a whole is only available as the challenge.

    God it looks horrible. The only thing I would try are the wings. They would go quite nice with the coleslaw and maybe the sauce. But the burger and the fries no way….
