Finish the Korean Suicide Burrito at John's and You Don't Have to Pay

Categories: Free Food!
Set yourself on fire.
To celebrate the one-year anniversary of the creation of the Korean burrito, John Park, owner of John's Snack and Deli in the Financial District, is calling for Scoville junkies to take his Suicide Kimchi Burrito Challenge, starting tomorrow (March 16).

He's taking his regular burritos (kimchi fried rice, kimchi, marinated meats, salsa, cheese, and cilantro) and adding what he described to me last week as an "atomic" blend of Chinese, Mexican, and Korean peppers. If you can finish the burrito in the store, you won't have to pay for it, and he'll post a photo of your sweaty, scorched-lip smile. (If you punk out, it'll only cost you $6.84.)

Working in your favor, there appear to be no rules against drinking milk or beer while you eat, and Park noted on his Web site that he's currently serving veggie rice porridge for $2.50, the culinary equivalent of running out of a sauna to jump in the cold plunge.

John's Snack & Deli 40 Battery (at Pine), 434-4634
