Penn Dental Student Lisel Parillon = Taco Eating Champion

Lisel Parillon before her first taco challenge at Drinker's West

What a great story. Guess you don't have to be a mammoth person to eat all of these tacos.
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.
With dental school starting, her time may be otherwise occupied - or not......
