Abu Dhabi's Hoi An launches 1.1 litre noodle challenge

This is one for the hungriest foodies in Abu Dhabi.

Hoi An at the Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri is challenging you to take on a massive 1.1 litre bowl filled of Vietnamese speciality beef pho.

The challenge is running until the end of December, and with over a litre of broth and a huge dose of noodles and beef, it’s a lot of food (and not for the faint-hearted or small-stomached).

Think you can handle it?

If you can finish the whole lot, in a single sitting, then the food will be completely free of charge.

Fail to clear the lot and the humongous dish will cost you Dhs189.

Vietnamese cuisine has some of the most vibrant and enjoyable dishes in Asia, from delicious banh mi to steaming bowls of soup, we’re yet to meet a Vietnamese dish we didn’t like.

But this sounds like a step too far, even for us.
Dhs189 or free if you finish it. Daily 6pm-11pm. Hoi An, Shangri La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri (02 509 8888).
