Behold the Don Juan at Juan in a Million. You might have seen this on the travel channel’s Man v Food. I know I did. That combined with my friends in Austin going there after Saturday morning practice and never being able to eat more than 2 of them. ( My friends swam at the University of Texas and like me, had huge appetites after practice. I would sometimes eat this after practice: scrambler, coffee cake, milkshake )
Upon walking up to the building I immediately recognized it from the Travel Channel. It was time to see what the Don Juan was really about. It takes 8 to break the record, could I do it? It was time to find out.
Of course chips and salsa were presented to start the meal. After my time in Austin, I have come to miss having chips and salsa all the time. I would love it if every restaurant offered them. Why eat bread when chips and salsa are a million times better ?
Sean is demonstrating correct form for eating the Don Juan. Keep in mind you are looking at 1/3 of the entire Don Juan. Imagine someone repeating this 21 times! The record for most Don Juans is 7. I have no idea how that is possible. I was barely able to finish one. It might not look like a lot of food, but there is something about the potato that sneaks up on you. You do not realize how filling a whole potato is! I must say that I was somewhat humbled in my experience here. I was fully prepared to try and go for the record, but I must say I came NO where close. If you ever go to Juan in a Million I would love to here about how many you can eat ?
