Anyone who had seen Man v Food, or any of them mental eating challenges on YouTube where they encase a pizza in Big Macs, deep fry it, wrap it in bacon and then top it with KitKats will understand the sheer determination and gratitude that comes from actually finishing a massive bit of grub.
If you want to give yourself a challenge in Manchester, or have loads of mates who are always hungry, then you’d be silly not to give the new 2 ft long burrito a try at the Northern Quarter’s legendary El Capo.
Encased within 3 huge tortillas, and measuring approximately 2x 30cm rulers long, can be your choice of chicken, pork, beef, veggie or fish, smothered with one of 4 salsas (of varying spice), guacamole, black beans, veg and cheese. Finished with additional cheese, guacamole and salsa on top – this bad boy is not to be taken lightly.
The good people over at El Capo tell me that this monster can feed up to 6 hungry people, but if you think you’re hard and can handle it all by yourself – be my guest – just make sure you bring your stretchy pants.
The burrito is available on the menu from 4pm daily and is £30.
