What is Travel Channel's Man v. Food?
Host Adam Richman sets out to travel the country in search of the best places to do some serious indulging. Adam's quest brings him to some of the greatest traditional food the nation can serve up, and he takes on some epic food challenges along the way. Watch the series to find out who wins when Man takes on Food.
Detroit Episode DetailsAdam starts his trip to Detroit with a chili dog civil war, which started almost a century ago. Lafayette Coney Island and American Coney Island sit side-by-side on Lafayette street and both come from the same family lineage! (Brothers in a family rift to be exact). Detroit residents are fiercely loyal to one or the other. Which one does Adam think tastes best? You'll have to watch to find out. Next, Adam visits Slows Bar BQ on Michigan Avenue for what some say is the best barbecue in town. Their menu includes an interesting twist on classics, like brisket enchiladas and a vegatarian 'chicken' sandwich.
Adam is there to try their signature dish:
the triple thread pork sandwich.
This dish starts with a bed of bacon, then a healthy serving of hickory-smoked pork butt, and finally finished off with some grilled ham. Now for the BIG stuff...Adam's main challenge for this episode. He heads to Mallie's Sports Grill & Bar to take on the "Absolutely Ridiculous Burger". What makes it absolutely ridiculous?
It weighs 190 pounds!!!
Mallie's holds the record for the world's largest burger, but nobody has ever attempted to eat it. Adam has gathered a 40-person team of Detroit's finest to help him tackle this massive challenge. Check out the video preview for a sneak peek at this burger!
Be sure to tune-in Wednesday, November 4th, at 10 E/P.
