Burger Bungalow is located in Vancouver, Washington. At the time of this posting, the place is only about a year old. They have generous portion sizes for their burger combos!
So what draws a spicy-seeking panda to a burger joint? A spicy challenge, of course! And if you read the full review, you'll get to see video of me taking it on!
Please welcome the Shut Yo' Mouth challenge. Take down a Shut Yo' Mouth burger with chips or fries -- without liquids -- in 10 minutes or less. Winners receive their picture on the Wall of Flame and 50% off their next meal. The chips or fries you pick are also laced with their secret Shut Yo' Mouth sauce, which includes jalapenos and habaneros.

That sounds so good, but I didn't order it. Oh well.
|You could also get fries for the challenge|
Something I probably should have done....
|Wall of Flame|
10 minutes to eat burger and chips/fries, plus 3-minute afterburn
I had to sign a waiver, but I laughed at it. Spice wouldn't destroy me. But time, usually my only friend in spicy challenges, now worked for the enemy. No liquids exacerbated the problem. Haven't you defiled this panda enough?!

Three-minute afterburn! Wait, what afterburn? While my face glistened with a little sweat, my mouth felt no pain. Oh well, I was a bored panda for three minutes, then got my official win. Perhaps I shoulda danced for the few patrons in the building at the time.
|Proof of my win is logged in their files!|
Worker: "So how was it...was it spicy?"
Me: (a "meh" type of response)
Worker: "Whaaaa?!" (shakes head in disbelief)
Habaneros are panda snack food. No "bad aftereffects" to report. Iron gut, perhaps?
As a bonus to my loyal readers, here's a video of me silencing this Shut Yo' Mouth Challenge!
The employees were awesome and treated me like family. I'll be back for another burger -- with fries, this time!
