  • I tried this challenge and failed with just a few ounces of broth left. It is extremely difficult because of all the factors involved. The Bowl it self is a specially insulated bowl to which works to keep the broth very hot. The Hot broth works against works to slow you down, against an already short challenge time. The Spice level is not absurd but when combined with the hot liquid, you can feel everywhere the broth of the assorted chili has touched your mouth and lips for a few hours. Last of all its flat out a large amount of food.

    I feel that with what I know now, my new game plan I could finish it pretty easy. I’d be uncomortable for the rest of the day but it would be doable.

    A Plus for this challenge is that its not very expensive.

    Happy eating!

  • I conquered this challenge, just beating the clock. While super spicy, don’t get me wrong, the temperature
    of this boiling beast takes mad minutes off the allotted 30 minutes. The crowd hyping me up definitely helped push me to victory. I recently revisited Orochon while in LA, but skipped the challenge. No need to rock it twice, but had I done so, I would have mixed it repeatedly. When I did beat it, barely, I had killed all the broth and noodles and jalapenos, only to be left with a coagulated substance of chilies I was forced to take down. I made it to the Wall of Bravery and left a bit of advice to would-be challengers: “DON’T.”
