XXX Chilli Burger or the Saltdean Sizzler?

April 3rd, 2013

There must be some sort of macho chilli loving fetish happening down on the Sussex coast, as restaurantors in Hove and Saltdean challenge the public to test their resolve against two of the hottest dishes ‘in the world’.

The Saltdean Sizzler

Featured in the national newspapers today is Paul Brayshaw, who has created the ‘Saltdean Sizzler’ at his pizza house near Brighton. It consists of everything you would expect from a pizza, a tomato base, herbs and mozzarella but the fire comes from the inclusion of the infamous ghost chilli as on one of its toppings.

The pizza weighs in at a wopping 3.2 million on the Scoville scale; that is one extreme meal.

It has been said that some challengers have given up on completing the pizza after just one bite, confessing to it being just too hot!

XXX Chilli Burger

This article about Paul’s pizza reminded me of a similar extreme food that I encountered in the past, a food challenge so hot that you have to be over the age of 18 and sign a disclaimer promising not to sue the establishment, before you can eat it.

This scary sounding bite is the XXX Chilli Burger that can be found in the Burger Off restaurant in Hove. I personally know of two people who were not seen in public for a whole 24 hours after being made bedridden by this scorching, meaty ball of hell. Their stories talked of stomach cramps and uncontrollable sweats, as well as the unmentionables.

The burger consists of a secret sauce that is lathered onto the burger before it is consumed, containing a myriad of different eye-watering chillis.

Both are extreme food challenges, but which one would you choose to take on?
