Lisel Parillon's taco title is only days old, but she already has her sights set on Wing Bowl.
The 23-year-old graduate dentistry student at Penn hadn't heard of the annual 610 WIP celebration of gluttony (and strippers), but when we explained it to her yesterday she said she planned to try out for the contest, which hasn't had a serious female contender since pro-eater Sonya "Black Widow" Thomas won the crown in 2004.
On Aug. 20, Trinidad-born Parillon and friends were heading into Drinker's West (39th & Chestnut) when she decided to take the bar's taco challenge: If you eat 33 in under 13 minutes they're free.
Parillon rose above the challenge.
"My friends didn't think I could do it, but I wanted to try it," Parillon told us yesterday. "I surprised myself."
After completing the contest Parillon decided to go for the triple crown, performing the same at Drinker's Pub (1903 Chestnut) and then several days later at Drinker's Tavern (124 Market) where she did it in 9 minutes.
"I have a huge appetite, which nobody ever believes since I'm a size 0," said Parillon, who is 5-9 and says she weighs about 120. She's won free drinks for a year, up to $500, at all Drinker's locations, which are all offering $10 all-you-can-eat taco parties Sunday.
"When I was doing it, I was just focused. I didn't realize how big of a deal it was," she said. "It's nice to get compliments on eating, which is something I love to do," Parillon said.
What won't she eat? "I hate grapefruit, pickles and olives," she said.
