Food.Fun.Stuff: Man v. Food Takes D.C.

[ 0 ] October 21, 2009 |

Guess who’s coming to dinner?? Man v. Food!!!!!! Ok, so we are uber (*Translation: Super) excited about this because Adam Richman is one of our favorite food personalities who takes on the most arduous foodie challenges. We’ve seen him eat everything from a 13 lb. pizza to mounds and mounds of raw oysters…he is truly the man. Now he will be making his trek to the District. Yup, tonight Man v. Food will air the Washington, D.C. episode where Adam Richman will take on the food challenges at local spots Ben’s Chili Bowl, Horace & Dickies Seafood-Chicken Carry Out (*We told you this spot was great, now your gonna have to wait in the extremely long line that will be forming after this show airs…) and Chick & Ruth’s Delly.

At Ben’s, Adam will be feasting on the chili of course, then over to Horace & Dickies for the fried fish sandwich which is pure deliciousness (*Is it lunch yet??) and he wraps things up with The Colossal Challenge @ Chick & Ruth’s Delly. Adam has 1 hour to finish a 6 lb. milkshake and a 1 1/2 lb. cold cut sandwich during the Colossal Challenge. We are rather impressed at the restaurant selections that they made (*Not so much with Ben’s, this is expected if you come to the District…), Horace & Dickies and Chick & Ruth’s are off the beaten path and are staples to Washingtonians.

We do, however, have one bone to pick with this whole situation…why weren’t we picked to partake in the Colossal Challenge?? We’re sure we could have met him head on with this one;-)

*Airs tonight on The Travel Channel @ 10 pm E/P
