LAS VEGAS (KTNV) - Before Miki Sudo became a competitive eater, winning the Nathan's Annual Hot Dog Eating Competition, her first big record was right here in Las Vegas.
Back in 2011, the Las Vegas native took on the 'Phozilla' challenge at Pho 87 near Spring Mountain and Jones.
For a $50 entry fee, you can try your luck eating a bowl of pho in 1,987 seconds or less. The gigantic bowl is full of a gallon of broth, 2 pounds of noodles, and 2 pounds of meat.
To this day, Sudo's record hasn't been broken. "Not only did she finish Phozilla, she asked for more food," says owner Mia Ha. In the past six years, hundreds have tried to take Sudo's title, but none has been successful.
"They have different strategies, some bring straws to suck the broth, other go for the noodles first," Ha says.
