World’s largest tortilla chip at home in Norwich

This is the largest tortilla chip in the country – and it is right at home on the edge of Norwich.

A team of staff from the Broadland View Brewers Fayre in Broadland Business Park has revealed the UK's largest tortilla chip to celebrate the launch of a new Tex Mex menu at their all-you-can eat buffet nights.

The record-breaking chip is made up of 40 kilos of flour, 20 litres of water and weighs more than 50kg.

It spans 200x150cm, took more than 50 hours to make and six Norwich 'banditos' to carry, and had to be baked in a special three-metre deep oven.

Emma Price, marketing manager at Brewers Fayre, said: 'We can't think of a better way to launch our new Tex Mex all-you-can-eat buffet.

'Our staff enjoyed dressing up and being involved in something so fun and memorable.'

The colossal snack has a total area of three square metres – the equivalent of 10,000 normal size tortilla chips.
