HAYNES is home to a new eating challenge yet to be conquered.
The monster 1kg steak and sides challenge is a new addition to the Haynes Bar and Grill menu, but venue manager Rob Steward said the challenge was much more than just the food on the plate.
“They do have to sit on a stage, they only have 20 minutes and they must clean the plate – this includes potatoes, vegetables and sauce,” he said.
“Should they complete the challenge within the 20 minutes allowed we will take care of the bill which is $50.
“Should they fail in their challenge they pay, but we will do the right thing and make sure we pick up their next pint.
“They go on our wall of fame or wall of shame, depending on the result.”
He said the idea had always revolved around a steak challenge, but they were thinking about changing the challenge every few months.
“We talked to a number of our regular guests as well as staff and others who have watched the business grow and were meet with big smiles and a lot of big talk, so from there is was just a case of finding a way to make it happen,” he said.
“There are food challenges all over the city and they aren’t usually taken to the suburbs.
“We’re providing the opportunity to get that same experience without having to travel into the city.”
To take the Haynes Bar and Grill steak challenge, make a reservation with mention of the challenge at least 24 hours in advance.
