Beer and tacos in your belly.
Lucha Libre Wrestling.
And now, Takeru Kobayashi.
The man. The myth. The World Champion Professional Eater legend.
From Nagano, Japan, Kobayashi, holds eight Guinness World Records for competitive eating and is the undefeated champion of the Gringo Bandito Chronic Tacos Championship. In 2017 he succeeded in devouring 159 tacos in 10 minutes – shattering his own 2015 record of 144 tacos.
Following the Chronic Tacos Challenge, Kobayashi will conduct meet-and-greets and eating demonstrations at the Sabroso Festival in Auburn and Portland. During the eating demonstrations, he will explain and showcase how to consume multiple tacos in one minute. “I am grateful for the opportunity to travel with the festival and introduce the sport of competitive eating to thousands of spectators,” says Kobayashi.
