According to the restaurant owner, the size of the chicken rice can feed at least 6 or more people, depending on you and your friends’ appetites!

So, if you are feeling hungry, just go for the challenge as the rules are very simple; you have to finish it alone within one hour. If you make it, you’ll get the meal for free.
