Weekends, until the COVID- 19 pandemic broke out, had been the time for partying in many countries around the globe. However, the pubs became silent and the streets became deserted after most nations announced strict lockdown. Though the governments have been relaxing the lockdown restrictions lately, people aren’t returning in huge numbers to the restaurants, pubs and bars like they used to in the pre Covid times. Meanwhile, eateries and pubs are busy announcing interesting contests and discounts to attract more customers.

The Bullet thali contest announced by an eatery in Pune had recently become viral, with foodies trying their giant thali meals to win a swanky bullet bike. Now, the burger eating contest announced by a pub in Australia is grabbing attention on the social media.

The humongous burger has a mega patty that weighs around one and half kilos and buns that are equally heavy. Besides, there are other usual toppings including lettuce, tomatoes and onions. A kilo of potato chips too would be served on the side. The burger that weighs around 5 kilos cost a whopping 80 dollars. Those who can finish this giant burger would win a barrel of beer.

Netizens are already having a field day on various social media sites, posting memes and trolls about the bizarre burger contest. However, some criticize that contests like this are a shame and show utter disrespect to the customer.

Anyway, foodies and beer lovers in Australia are all set to give this unique burger eating contest a try.
