YVR Hosts 1st Ever Japadog Eating Contest [Highlights]

Mhmm Japadogs!

What originally began as typical food cart in 2005 is now a Empire, with five Vancouver locations and a storefront in NYC!

YVR hosted the first ever Japadog Eating Contest just this past Friday and boy was it interesting.

Outline: Six contestants, 10 minutes, unlimited Japadogs. Contestant who eats the most claims the grand prize of a $250 YVR gift certificate.

Steve Thomson of Vancouver, aka “the sensei of speed eating” and “top dog,” managed to wolf down seven Japadogs in 10 minutes. That’s about half a Japadog every 43 seconds! The runner up was close, managing to down six.

Take a look at the showdown:
