Food and words.
Published October 20th 2011
Adelaide likes things big. We have a giant rocking horse, and a huge pair of silver balls, but we also like our food big. You can woof down a giant schnitzel or steak, or gulp a load of oysters or beer, Adelaide has its fair share of big foods. We've lined up a few options, but we want your opinion on Adelaide's best food challenge.

One of the biggest ones out there is the 18" schnitzel at the Adelaide Casino. You can't always join in the challenge, Sky City pretty regularly take this whopper off their menu. It helps that the schnitzels at the casino are actually quite good, and at the regular price of $12.50 you'll pay less than you do for plenty of half schnitzels at other pubs. If you manage the impressive feat you'll generally get a free beer, and some will even score a t-shirt. They lose a few points because this challenge is often only temporary, but its still a pretty good one.

Another long feed is 'Australia's Largest German Hotdog' at the Hanhdorf Inn. You've got to be able to stomach a lot more than just a bit meal if you want to finish this challenge, the metre long bratwurst sausage is topped with a heaping of sauerkraut, so if you're not a fan of this pickled cabbage you might not be able to complete the challenge. If you do enjoy German cuisine this is definitely one to try, and if you finish it off with a 1L stein you can also go home with a t-shirt.

Outback Jack's put a time limit on their challenge, you'll have to eat a 1kg Rump in under 30 minutes. If you can manage the challenge you'll not only receive a free t-shirt, but you'll also get the $40 steak at half price. As well as this huge slab of meat you'll also have to get through potato wedges and steamed vegetables, is the glory worth it?

There are also those challenges that don't revolve around how big your meal it, but how much you can get down. The Adelaide Oyster Bar on East Terrace have a wall dedicated to the brave men and women who have managed to slurp down many a dozen of oysters. Eat your fill to get your name on the board, and see if you can take out the top spot.

If you'd rather some lager, head to the Liars Bar at the Earl of Leicester, here you'll have to try over 60 beers on their list to become a member of the Beer Legend Club. They don't endorse irresponsible drinking, so you're not expected to do them all at once, but when you do finish you'll get your name on their beer legends board, as well as a polo shirt, and some food and drink vouchers.

So let us know your favourite food challenge that Adelaide has to offer. If you've tried a food challenge and succeeded tell us all about it. What is Adelaide's best big food challenge?
