There’s an epic new vegan food challenge in Vancouver


Vancouver loves a food challenge. From fiery-hot wings and ramen to massive bowls of pho, from heaps of saucy pasta to burgers bigger than your head, there are lots of ways to stuff yourself to victory in the city.

Now there’s an epic new food challenge aimed at those who prefer a plant-based diet.

Dundas Eat + Drink has launched a new eating challenge as a sequel to last year’s Six O Pho madness, but it’s all vegan. Their Vegan Bun Bo Hue Challenge pits diners against a three-pound bowl of the dish, with 20 minutes on the clock to slurp it all down.

The Vegan Bun Bo Hue is made with tofu, thinly sliced imitation meat, noodles and a deliciously sour and mildly spicy broth.

Dundas stipulates that noodle lovers must finish the whole bowl, including the soup, in 20 minutes. If you finish, you’ll get a prize, and the fastest five eaters will go into a final table round where they contend for a $500 worth of cash and prizes, plus and each of the five will automatically receive a $100 gift card to Dundas.

No matter how you fare against this epic bowl of noodles and soup, you’ll be paying $25 for the eats.

Dundas Eat + Drink is located at 2077 Dundas St. in Vancouver
