The Black Lion launches massive hot dog challenge

Dubai pub challenges diners to eat a metre-long hot dog in 15 minutes

The Black Lion launches massive hot dog challenge

Dubai’s British-themed pub, The Black Lion, at The H Dubai, has laid down the gauntlet to the city’s hungriest diners, with the launch of a huge metre-long hot dog.

Be warned – the meal is comprised of a whopping seven individual hot dogs, and each gets taller and spicier the further you move along the board.

The first hot dog is adorned with a classic combination of ketchup, mustard and onion, swiftly followed by a spicy chilli con carne with tacos number, Korean short rib with cheese, sriracha pulled chicken, Schezwan prawns, sambal and onion bhaji, and finally a mouth-meltingly fiery habanero mole with jalapeños, fresh chillies and chilli-dusted onion rings. And once you’ve completed that, there’s a basket of (pretty delicious) fries to get through.

Diners who managed to eat all seven hot dogs and every single fry can claim the monster hot dog free, while those who don’t manage it (or opt to share it) must pay Dhs295.

Winners will land themselves a spot on The Black Lion’s Dirty Dog Challenge leader board, and also win a free prize.

Think you’re hard enough?

Dhs295. Sat-Wed 5pm-11.30pm. The Black Lion, The H Dubai, Sheikh Zayed Road (04 359 2366).
