Five of Dubai’s colossal feeds
If you finish off this enormous burrito, you will literally be 1kg heavier. That’s probably why Taqado has named it the ‘Beast Burrito’ , coming in a 12-inch wrap and stuffed with whatever you want – from oceans of rice to plenty of beans. Oh, and you can even add loaded nachos and a drink for AED75.

Russo’s New York Pizzeria
They call it the “Party Pizza” for a reason, because it’s not meant to be tackled alone. The XL 28-inch Giant Party Pizza is so laughably big, you’ll struggle to get the delivery box itself through the door, let alone eat it. Is there such a thing as a party for one?

The fact the word “monster” is included in the name pretty much says it all. This one-metre long hotdog features four separate fillings – mac ‘n’ cheese, pulled beef, nachos with sour cream, guacamole and salsa and caramelised onions with mushroom and mustard. Good luck.

Weighing in at 1,200g, it’s the tomahawk steak at Seafire (the crowd roars). It’s listed under the “to share” section of Seafire’s menu, which probably tells you all you need to know. But the braver, and those who want a no-holds-barred meat injection, might fancy taking it on and going solo. All the best.

This belly-busting Beast burger, which includes a whole heap of comfort bites, weighs in at 3kg and is likely to leave you feeling full for a week. If you can finish it in under 45 minutes, the price will be knocked off the menu and you will be immortalised on Claw BBQ’s Wall of Fame.
