Canadian YouTubers tackle Saskatoon meals problem
SASKATOON – A restaurant in Saskatoon was hit by some viral video stars Thursday afternoon while taking part in a dining challenge.
The challenge, which took place at Talayah’s Southern Grill, was brought back for YouTuber Joel Hansen of Model vs. Food and Scott Watkins of Scott Eats.
“So we happened to be around here doing other challenges and events.” “Yesterday we did a pizza challenge with a huge charity donation and we heard that this place has great food, a really cool owner, so we had to come out and try some of that delicious southern cuisine.”
Both competitors took on the two-pound Diabolical Burger 35 minutes before the end.
Hansen finished his burger in just over five minutes and Watkins finished his in over six minutes and 30 seconds.
Chef Stackz, a Louisville, Kentucky Southern Grill chef, was delighted the duo were up for the challenge and hopes to continue serving true Southern cuisine to the community.
“I like to do this,” said Stackz. “Because I grew up and know how to do it. And I want you to come to see it. Just as I have my sweet tea, I have my macaroni and cheese and I hug what I grew up with. Real soul food, that’s what I make here, soul food. “
For those interested in trying the Stackz offering, Talayah’s Southern Grill is located at 1222 Alberta Ave.
