Culinary lava lamp Guy Fieri's Las Vegas restaurant Guy Fieri's Vegas Kitchen & Bar opened back in April, and on the ridiculous menu is a dessert called "Guy's Cheesecake Challenge." It's "a huge mountain of cheesecake topped with potato chips, pretzels + hot fudge." Writes Andrew Kiraly over at KNPR:
Instead of sitting flat — commonsense, quotidian, even jejune — the cheesecake is set on its edge like a wheel... I imagined Guy Fieri straddling that ragged crescent cake-moon like a motorcycle, riding into a cold and inscrutable universe, crying for an answer, a connection, somebody, anybody, with his painted flames and chocolate-sauced potato chips, his pepperoni armor and outsized burgers: Is anybody out there? I've got cheesecaaaaake!
Is it a "challenge" because it's tough to eat? To make? To carry? To take seriously? That is for you to decide. Here's another look:
