It may not have been the end of the world but it was armageddon, parmigiana-style for two young Echuca-Moama visitors last week.
Rowville’s Daniel Wallace, 24, and Michael Dyer, 22, attempted the Shamrock Hotel’s ‘parmageddon’ on Friday.
The pair were the first to attempt the five-parmigiana, $101 dish since it first appeared on the hotel’s menu about two months ago.
They said they first came up with the idea of taking on the monster dish when they arrived in Echuca for a holiday over New Year’s and saw it on the menu.
Daniel was slightly in front of Michael for most of the ‘parma-off’, however by the end the pair were neck and neck.
Neither managed to completely get through the dish, with each grinding to a halt nearly four parmies down.
