CHILLI-LOVERS are invited to take part on a hot sauce eating competition on Saturday to see who can best handle the heat.

The competition at new Californian-Mexican restaurant Tortilla in Canary Wharf will allow entrants to sample a range of hot sauces, from mild to masochistic.

For every one of the 25 hot sauces tasted, entrants will receive a free raffle ticket towards the grand prize, a year's supply of burritos.

Tortilla boss Brandon Stephens said: "London's definitely going to be burning. To celebrate the launch of our new store, we're testing the palates of out diners to see who really can stand the heat."

The hot sauce eating contest will take place at Tortilla's new restaurant in Canary Wharf from noon on Saturday.
