First Hot Dogs, Then Dumplings, Then?
In case you were wondering it is possible to eat 83 dumplings in 8 minutes.
A Japanese champion eater fended off 30 challengers to win a dumpling eating contest in Hong Kong Saturday, downing 83 steamed dumplings in eight minutes.And yup, that's the same guy that has the record for the most hotdogs --- 53 1/2 in 12 minutes. What a guy.
In his first contest in Hong Kong, Takeru Kobayashi, 27, picked up the vegetarian dumplings with chopsticks and swallowed many of them almost effortlessly. The professional competitive eater even flaunted his abdominal muscle after he finished eating.
