SF Vietnamese Restaurant Issues “Pho Challenge”

You know how you have restaurants where, to entice college students or “hip, fun” young adults, they have challenges where you have to eat ridiculous quantities of food in a certain amount of time to get a Polaroid of yourself on a wall? (Cluck-U’s 911 Challenge and Fuddrucker’s “Eat a Ginormous Hamburger in 10 minutes” promotion come to mind.) Well, add pho to the mix, because SF-based Pho Garden has a challenge where if you eat a serving of noodle and tripe soup the size of an industrial kitchen sink in an hour, you get it for free, and maybe – just maybe – a photo on their wall to immortalize your gluttony. Losers who don’t finish their soup will have to pay $22, punishment for not thinking about all the starving kids in… uhm, nevermind.
