This summer, Mince has been favourite amongst diners and loiterers at HaceindaBay’s pop-up carnival of food and shopping, Lake Yard, providing beachgoers with a delicious dose of post-swim, pre-late-afternoon-nap burgers and doing likewise at its other North Coast locations in Hacienda White and Marassi.
Things are set to take a turn for the mince-y, however, this Friday at Lake Yard, as the gourmet burger restaurant gears up for an epic burger eating contest, with twenty of Egypt’s most popular foodies and influencers set to take part, including Mariam Mohsen from Bite & Brag, Passant El Molla of The Food Review fame and the guys from Cairo Munch, while our sister website, Cairo 360, will be represented by their resident foodie, Ramy Soliman.
The challenge goes as thus: three burgers will be laid out in front of each contestant for their gorging pleasure and if they can scoff down the lot of them, more burgers await. From then on, it’s all just a case of every man and woman for themselves.
As is befitting of such a clash of titans, the stakes are high and there are big prizes in store for the top three. First place will win 3,000LE worth of burgers from Mince and will have the honour of being crowned Mince Machine. Second (Mince Monster) and third place (Mince Muncher) will be handsomely rewarded, too, with 2,000LE and 1,000LE vouchers awaiting each respectively. With the event being powered by Ariika, all three will also receive gifts
For several years now, Mince has been one of the most popular vendors of that simple bun-patty-bun combination we’ve come to know as the burger. Be it their sinfully good Juicy Lucy, or one of their newer creations like the almighty Elvis French Toast, it’s certainly a restaurant that isn’t afraid of doing things big, so to speak – and it doesn’t get bigger than this.
The contest is set to begin at 5PM sharp – come and cheer on your favourite foodies and influencers!
