Singaporeans’ insatiable love for food is undeniable and riding on the growing trend of competitive eating, Cathay Malls, which includes Cathay Cineleisure Orchard and The Cathay, is pleased to announce the first-ever Epic Eater 2016 competition!

The timed food challenge will be held in collaboration with casual Japanese-dining maki and salad eatery, Maki-san, known for its inventive, design-it-yourself maki rolls. For the purpose of the contest, Maki-san has designed a special maki roll for the competition that includes ingredients such as nori (seaweed) wrap, Japanese white rice, shredded cucumber, kani stick, tamagoyaki and teriyaki sauce, to facilitate speed eating.

From now till 13 July 2016, amateur competitive eaters, self-proclaimed “bottomless pits” and food lovers nationwide are invited to sign-up and contend in the fast-and-furious action of maki speed-eating, to create ingestion history and become the fastest eater to chow down the most number of maki rolls in the shortest span of time!

“Eating as a sport has become increasingly popular in Singapore and we are excited to launch Epic Eater 2016, a local competitive eating event we can proudly call our own. This is in line with our focus to create events that synergise with our core business of entertainment, leisure and lifestyle. Through Epic Eater, we’re also excited to connect with Singaporeans through our national past-time – eating,” said Lena Tan, Marketing Manager of Cathay Malls.
