Monster Burger is supersized serving
AN OVERSIZED burger has shot one local takeaway business to social media fame.
The Woopi Monster Burger has become an online hit after launching at the beginning of the week.
The mammoth creation is the work of Kayla Woodbury, who took over ownership of Woolgoolga Industrial Takeaway on Monday.
At more than one kilogram, the burger consists of four meat patties, around half a lettuce, more than 300g of bread, plus onion, tomato and beetroot.
The Monster Burger has become a hit with the tradies, with many taking to Facebook to share their giant lunchtime feed.
Now, the business has launched a new challenge for those wanting to push their stomach capacity even further.
The challenge includes a works version of the Monster Burger, with egg, bacon and pineapple in addition to the original fillings, as well as a large portion of chips loaded with cheese and bacon and a one litre Nutella milkshake, topped with two Nutella-filled donuts.
"If they finish the challenge, they'll get a t-shirt to say they've done it, as well as making the wall of fame," Ms Woodbury said.
"We're going to do up a wall with polaroids of people who have finished the challenge, and a leader board with the fastest times.
"We want to make this hard - even the works burger alone, I'd like to see someone finish that."
The Advocate's resident gastronomer Brad Greenshields was quick to take up the challenge, attempting to down the works burger, chips and milkshake this week.
Brad put in a strong effort but after 22 minutes admitted defeat, having finished around two-thirds of the meal.
"That's an extraordinary amount of food to have in one sitting," he said.
"Any person who completes this challenge is clearly the love child of Homer Simpson and Jabba the Hutt."
The challenge meal, which launches tomorrow, is only available on Saturdays between 10am and 2pm, while the regular Monster Burger is available Monday-Saturday.
