Ever Wanted to Own a Restaurant? Just Eat This Burrito
No, it's not some kind of weird Limitless-esque situation where you eat a burrito and become Gordon Ramsay. But eating a burrito can give you a portion of restaurant ownership.
Don Chignon taqueria in Brooklyn is giving patrons an opportunity at business partnership if they can just prove their love and devotion to all things burrito by merely... eating 30 pounds' worth.
Seriously, 30 pounds of burrito goodness in an hour with no bathroom breaks, no puking, and no other shenanigans. Oh, and by the way, you're also going to knock back a ghost pepper margarita as part of the deal.
It costs $150 to enter and, if you successfully complete this mission, you become 10% owner of the restaurant. Food and Wine magazine puts things into perspective:
Just for a bit of context, when he set the burrito eating world record back in the spring, human food processor and competitive eating champion Joey Chestnut ate about 14 pounds of burritos, so you’ll have your work cut out for you
A whopping 30 pounds of food, ghost peppers, and tequila all wrapped into one hour of binge-eating. I hope the staff of Don Chignon has a mop and a bucket nearby at all times.
By the way, if you do manage to complete this task, not only do you get 10% of the restaurant, but also 100% of my heart.
