Eating challenge: we tackled London’s biggest breakfast


“That’s 1.2 kilos of chips…you have one hour to eat it.”

We tried London’s biggest breakfast, and boy was it more than we bargained for. This full English eating challenge is not for the faint-hearted, and when you look at the components it’s easy to see why.

The restaurant responsible is the aptly-named Fat Boys Cafe in Croydon. The breakfast is rather ominously termed ‘The Blowout’. It consists of two eggs, six rashers of bacon, two sausages, a fried slice, mushrooms, beans or tomatoes, and a mammoth 1.2 kilograms of chips.

You have one hour in which to polish the breakfast off, without a single baked bean left on your plate. If you’re successful, you win the £20 this breakfast costs back.

If you lose, you’ve got to stomach the size of the meal – and the full cost.
