The dictionary defines the word burger as “a flat round cake of minced beef that is fried or grilled and typically served in a bread roll”. The dictionary does not describe the word “Moo-Husive” but I know what it means… so… who’s smart now? You big wordy book of words I’ve never finished reading…
If you’re like me and smarter than books, you’ll have figured out that The Moo-Husive One is a pun,
mocking fat cows it’s a play on words about the burger being really big. Like, proper big. Double nailed it.
We went back to the Devonshire Arms to get our burger on. These monsterous burgers buns were filled with onion rings, bacon, cheese, sausage, lettuce, tomato, more onions and a hefty burger to, obviously. Served with chunky chips, a stuffed jalapeno, a big ol’ scoop of homemade coleslaw next to a healthy salad, (because health). Unsurprisingly, this beast takes its place at the very peak of the burger menu.
This isn’t my first Moo-husive burger, as I often visit the Dev for a pint
or 6 of soda water and lime. My first attempt, while not exactly a challenge, I attempted to eat as fast as I could and achieved, what I thought, was a respectful time of just over 14 minutes. “Hurrah” I thought to myself, “another challenge in the bag! My, I’m not bad at this!” Turns out I’m an idiot. Before we even had chance to edit the footage of my supposed “triumph”, someone came along and devoured The Moo-husive One in 9 minutes 26 seconds. Bugger.
So I had to go back and attempt to beat the time and the Moo-husive Burger Challenge started being a bit more official and a lot more daunting than when it began. Whether I managed to beat the 9 minute mark and secure my place at the top of the board, you’ll have to watch the video to find out, hope you enjoy it! If you want to try it yourself, you can buy one Monday – Saturday at the Devonshire Arms in Cambridge.
