PORTLAND, Maine — The host of television show “Man v. Food” has taken on Maine, surviving an encounter with an eight-patty burger chased with a can of Moxie.
Adam Richman’s July trip to Maine will be featured Wednesday at 9 p.m. on the Travel Channel.
The Portland Press Herald says his road trip took him to the Tradewinds Cafe in Arundel, Nosh Kitchen Bar in Portland and the Lobster Shack in Cape Elizabeth.
At the Tradewinds, Richman took the “Manimal” challenge by scarfing down two dogs, an order of fries, an eight-patty cheeseburger with grilled onions, a can of Moxie and a one-pound butter pecan milkshake. At the Nosh, he ate a rich burger with American cheese, seared pork belly, cured bacon and foie gras.
