Eat, What's On

Melbourne Chilli Festival

Set your taste-buds on fire at The Melbourne Chilli Festival on Saturday 4 June and help raise funds for the Prahran Mission.

Think you can handle the spice? Take part in the chilli eating competition with 5 competitions held with 5 contestants each. The winner will be determined by the fastest time out of all the winners in total. Contestants must eat 12 x chicken wings marinated in the world’s hottest chilli extract, in 5 minutes or less. The chilli extract has a scoville reading (unit for measurement of heat) of 9.1 million. To put that into perspective a fresh jalapeno has a scoville reading of just 2,000.

The hottest Melbourne food trucks will be also there on the night including Dos Diablos, Billy Van Creamy, Soul Kitchen Pizza , Little Mushroom Co and Hobba . All trucks will have a chilli element in addition to their existing menu.
