Can you stand the heat?
This March, London’s fieriest food-feasting competition, King of the Wing, returns to South London. The notorious and fiercely fought spicy buffalo wing eating competition will be taking place for the first time at Fu Manchu in Clapham and will challenge London’s hungriest and most fearless meat fiends to put their taste buds to the test.
On Friday 31st March 2017, 30 brave competitors with stomachs of steel (and a relaxed approach to table manners) will battle it out in a bid to be crowned King of the Wing 2017. Participant’s temperatures are expected to soar and tongues to tingle as they wolf down as many red-hot buffalo wings as they can handle in just 8 minutes. In 2015 the record was set: a staggering 1.35 kg of meat (approximately 50 wings) was consumed within the time limit. This year chicken-chomping challengers will attempt to beat this hefty amount.
At this all-you-can-eat showdown, opponents will be fighting for glutinous glory and a generous bar tab. First prize is a £350 bar tab to spend at either of Fu Manchu’s sister bars – Jam Tree Clapham or Jam Tree Chelsea – as well as your name emblazoned on the trophy and most importantly the legendary champion status. Second prize is a nifty £200 bar tab, and third prize is a £150 bar tab. All participants will also receive a limited-edition T-Shirt for their valiant efforts.
Laced with a dangerous and top secret combination of chilli, Tabasco and cayenne pepper, the fiery wings are ridiculously tasty but also not for the fainthearted. Although water glasses will be on hand to quench fiery mouths throughout the eat-athon, the thought of such messy eating and stomach sizzling may turn some hands clammy. Fu Manchu warmly welcomes spectators to come and witness an evening of flushed faces, sauce smothered fingers, and chicken munching madness, all while sipping delicious beverages.
For those who think that they have got what it takes to devour wings to the clock while keeping their cool, entry is now open and challengers should email Clapham@thejamtree.com or Chelsea@thejamtree.com to enter.
Only the strong survive…
