FOODIES with world-class Olympic appetites are being invited to go for gold at a top Tyneside venue.
As Brazil gears up to host the 2016 Olympic Games, Osbornes, Jesmond, is issuing its very own sporting contest; Man vs Osbornes, for anyone prepared to tackle giant-sized portions.
They can choose from the Ultimate Olympian Challenge – five beef or chicken burgers, stacked between layers of onion rings and chips – or pit their waistlines against the Decathlon.
This offers the choice of an Olympic burger, a pole dog, fish finger dog or chilli and lime chicken breast, along with a mug of chilli con carne, onion rings, chips, coleslaw and nachos with cheese, with a strawberry, chocolate or vanilla milkshake.
“We’re embracing the spirit of the Olympic Games by giving our customers the chance to experience some of the pride and achievement the athletes feel when they’ve faced their greatest challenge,” said Atul Malhotra, director of Newcastle-based Malhotra Group plc, which owns Osbornes.
“We might not all be able to run as fast as Usain Bolt, but then I doubt he could cope with our Decathlon challenge – although we’d love to see him try.”
Alongside Man vs Osbornes, the venue is offering an Olympics burger and hot dog menu, themed to the sporting event.
Dishes include the Mo-Bot burger, made of Quorn mince, topped with halloumi and salsa; the Asian burger, made of beef or chicken topped with hoisin duck and served with spring rolls and the African burger, made from chilli and lime marinated chicken with a pineapple salsa.
The Ultimate Olympian costs £20 per person, the Decathlon is priced at £25 and the Olympics burgers and hot dogs cost £8.95 each.
Osbornes is open from 11am to 11pm Monday to Friday, from 10am to 11pm on Saturday and from 10am to 10.30pmon Sunday.
