Typically known for chowing down on everything from hot dogs and hamburgers to wings and Twinkies, competitive food eating champ Takeru Kobayashi set his sights on the holy grail of pastries and took a bite out of a massive Hamantashen -- a dessert usually consumed during the Jewish holiday of Purim.

Kobayashi kept it kosher while speaking at Yeshiva University in NYC on Thursday.
