Tom Pizzica of Outrageous Food is wowed by fifth-generation Pastry Chef Bobby Jucker's Pumpecapple Piecake -- a decadent dessert that contains three pies inside of a giant cake, described by a fan as "literally a party in your mouth." Regulars also love the crunchy gingerbread men all year long.
Tom Pizzica tears up as he eats the deliciously spicy I'm Sorry hot sauce made in-house at Taste of a Gyro in Sonoma, Calif. Chef Dominic Sammarco uses fresh and dried ghost peppers; his friend at the spice market explains that in India, the peppers are named "poisonous king cobra."
On Food Network's Outrageous Food, Tom Pizzica discovers the Wall Street Burger Shoppe in New York, NY, offering the lavish Richard Nouveau Burger, made with Kobe beef, shaved black truffles, foie gras and golden truffle mayonnaise.
White Rabbit Truck features Filipino fusion food in the form of tacos, nachos and burritos. Its claim to fame is a six-pound burrito; those who finish one make the hall of fame. Not feeling quite that hungry? Try Pork Sisig tacos, made with fried pork belly, onions and jalapenos.
The question at Marianito's Extreme Texas is "Why be normal when you can go extreme?" Here you'll find enchiladas the size of sub sandwiches and the ultimate in burritos. The Grizzly weighs in at 7 pounds and measures 18 inches, packing 2 pounds of refried beans inside huge 14-inch tortillas.
Feast may be doing a "full throttle assault on Peter Cottontail" says Frank Bruni on The Best Thing I Ever Ate, but its hearty European-style cuisine has earned rave reviews from across the country. The fried rabbit liver and kidneys may be simple, but it easily makes Bruni's best-of list.
After someone beat their 36-inch burrito challenge, Gus' Mexican Cantina challenged customers to a 72-inch burrito. The massive 9-pound burrito comes with a pound of seasoned pork and six cups of rice, as well as chicken, beef and pork mixed throughout. The Nachos Supremo is equally satisfying.
The motto at San Felipe's Cantina is that every meal should be an event. Along with a menu of classic party foods (Nachos Grandes and World Famous Fish Tacos), San Felipe's serves the outrageous seven-pound El Gordito Burrito that requires a half gallon of San Felipe's Colorado hot sauce.
This hip pub takes a renegade approach to British dining with over-the-top dishes like the Fish & Chip Butty. Layers of fried indulgences combine to form this sandwich: chunky, golden-brown chips (aka fries) are heaped on a flaky battered halibut fillet that sits atop a crisp patty made from peas. Note: The Park Slope location is permanently closed.
Yagumo Sushi features an array of sushi and hand rolls, from Rainbow Rolls to albacore tuna. But the No. 10 sushi roll requires customers to sign a waiver. The No. 6 and No. 7 sushi rolls are hot, but No. 10's extra wasabi oil makes what Tom Pizzica on Outrageous Food calls "a bolt of lightning."
Fall in love with a Texas tradition at Houston institution Hickory Hollow: an award-winning chicken-fried steak. Tom Pizzica of Outrageous Food goes for the "Large Rancher" -- a 22-ounce piece of "Texan goodness" he claims is "so tender it cuts like butter" -- and a side of jalapeno potato poppers.
A little outside of Salem, Ore., Mt. Angel Sausage Company has been making Oregon a hotbed of brats, with its more than 16 different kinds of sausages, from spicy chorizo to pepper cheese. Outrageous Food's Tom Pizzica's pick has to be the four-alarm Fire House Brat made with ghost chile peppers.
Cactus Bob's BBQ Corral is famous for its juicy smoked barbecue meats. But owner Craig DeDecker's fame also comes from the "liquid death" Showdown Sauce. On Outrageous Food, Tom Pizzica attempted to eat the sauce that uses ghost peppers along with four of the spiciest hot sauces on the market.
This mecca for meat eaters offers diners a luxurious menu with Beef Carpaccio and Scottish Salmon Steak. For those looking for a feast, Outrageous Food's Tom Pizzica suggests Brand's 120 oz. Ultimate Steak for Six. The above and beyond porterhouse is wrapped in a golden crust of bacon.
