Dear fellow tasters,
Last month, I entered another eating competition but in a much smaller scale than the previous one. I learned about the registration from twitter and it was for Marutama Ra-men. Apparently, the eating competition was a part of a two days event organized by Plaza Indonesia with nine other participating F & B tenants and the Marutama Ra-men session was assigned to the second place for the first day.
Long story short, the competition was to finish one bowl of Marutama Ra-men (noodle, broth, vegetables and everything in it) and the fastest two will get the prize, 200k Marutama Ra-men voucher each. This time, there were only ten contestants for the session. The eating lasted for less than five minutes and I was no luckier than my first attempt at eating competition. I lost and I blamed it on the hot soup that scalded my tongue and made it harder to eat at a faster rate. Nevertheless, all the contestants got a consolation prize, 50k voucher for Marutama Ra-men, and a You vs Food T-shirt to wear for the competition although the size was a bit small for me.
Wish me luck on the next eating competition.
