Melt Bar & Grilled will be featured on the Travel Channel’s “Food Paradise” at 10 p.m. today.
"Food Paradise” is an occasional Travel Channel special that looks into the biggest, best and all-around most spectacular items of note in a particular food category.
The March 6 episode is titled “Cheese” and will pay homage to The Melt Challenge, an enormous grilled cheese sandwich that features 13 different cheeses, three slices of grilled bread and a pile of fries and slaw. All totaled, it equals more than five pounds of food.
Those who can eat the entire challenge without help or trips to the bathroom are inducted into the Melt Challenge Hall of Fame. They also receive a free Melt T-shirt and pint glass.
The upcoming “Food Paradise” episode isn’t the first time the Travel Channel has delved into the Melt Challenge. In 2010, “Man v. Food” host Adam Richman conquered the challenge himself — in just 45 minutes.
Previous episodes of "Food Paradise" have focused on hamburgers, hot dogs, steak, breakfast, diners, sausage, pizza, ribs and cookies, among other food favorites.
