Adam heads to Des Moines in tonight's Man V Food!
WEDNESDAY means it’s Man V Food! Tonight on the Travel Channel Adam Richman heads to Des Moines, Iowa to see what the city has to offer.
Des Moines Episode – Wednesday, October 6th at 9:00 E/P
At The High Life Lounge, a vintage style tavern, Adam enjoys some real comfort food, with a twist! From broasted chicken that seals in the chicken’s natural juices, to bacon wrapped tater tots topped with cheese, Adam gets a true taste of “America’s pantry” at this local hot-spot.
Next, Adam visits Black Market Pizza to join the locals in eating their favorite sandwiches turned into… pizza! Adam experiences a Black Market Pizza legend, when he tries the Reuben pizza. This sweet potato-crusted pizza is topped with sliced corned beef, thousand island dressing, Swiss cheese, a secret ingredient, and sauerkraut. Do you think Adam will enjoy this “sandwich pizza”? What about a cheeseburger pizza?
Finally at Jethro’s BBQ, Adam takes on the Adam Emmenecker Challenge. Named after the local sports hero, this five pound sandwich is made up of Emmenecker’s favorite barbecue and bar food: a deep fried pork tenderloin, two buffalo chicken tenders, a cheeseburger, bacon, brisket, two fried cheddar cheese cubes, and is smothered in white cheddar sauce. Hundreds of people have tried to finish this sandwich platter in just 15 minutes, but only two have succeeded. Do you think Adam will succeed in the face-off of Adam versus Adam?
