Takeru Kobayashi -- one of the greatest competitive eaters of all time -- tackled some serious hunger pangs during the big game on Sunday … downing a stadium-sized bowl of dip.
We’re told Kobayashi -- who was at a friend’s Super Bowl “Dip Party” -- inhaled the behemoth bowl of artichoke dip all by himself ... on top of a giant tray of seven-layer nachos … and STILL had room to go out for dinner.
FYI -- the guy to the left of Kobayashi is fellow gastro-master Tim Janus ... aka "Eater X."
Bright side -- no double dippers.
