Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam - A Vietnamese food company celebrated its 55th anniversary by feeding a crowd of about 2,000 in Ho Chi Minh City with a three ton bowl of beef noodle soup. The gesture was so grand that it secured the company a place in the Guinness Book of World Records, says the Association of Mature American Citizens.
The VIFON foods company assigned 55 chefs to prepare the soup using more than 336 pounds of fixins, 130 pounds of beef brisket, more than 46 pounds of seasonings and about 2,466 pounds of hot water. The crowd literally ate it up. And they said too many cooks spoil the soup.
