HUNTINGTON BEACH— Gross. Competitive eating champion Takeru Kobayashi has joined forces with Gringo Bandito Hot Sauce to roll out Kobayashi Presents the Gringo Bandito Taco Challenge taking place August 3 at Fred’s Mexican Café. Kobayashi plus other competitive eaters will attempt to devour as many tacos as possible in 10 minutes for a $5,000 prize. Sign up here to play. [EaterWire]

HOLLYWOOD— A few weeks ago, Hollywood landed a new Americanized Chinese buffet, King Buffet. Unfortunately, per its first and only one star Yelp spanking, doesn't look like it's off to a promising start. [EaterWire]

OUT AND ABOUT— More gross. This guy ate a whole jar of Nutella. Watch the video. [LAW]

MEALS ON WHEELS— As of today the PattyWagon truck has brought back last summer's popular Route 66 burger composed of American cheese, Aunt Patty's sweet n sour pickles, homemade ketchup, patty, bun. [EaterWire]
