Time Out takes on Abu Dhabi’s biggest steak challenge

Could you finish 2kg in 45 minutes?

Did you know family-friendly sports bar The Sportsman’s Arms offers a mega food challenge?

The kitchen will prepare a massive 2kg hunk of beef, complete with a tower of crispy onion rings and a dainty side salad (and why not?) for anyone willing to take it on.

Hungry entrants have 45 minutes to polish off every last mouthful of the huge piece of steak and failure means you’ll be saddled with a Dhs299 bill.

It’s available during all major sports matches (think Six Nations games, the FA Cup final, French Open, Champions League final and FIFA World Cup.

We went along to the venue at Zayed Sports City’s International Tennis Centre to try it out and as you will see from our video – it’s an extremely tough task.

No-one had ever finished the challenge before our attempt and since we took it on, the bar has reduced the size from 2.5kg to a cool 2kg.

Take a look at how we go on and don’t forget to like our video and subscribe to our YouTube channel, where we’ll be bringing you more of Abu Dhabi’s best bits every week.
