World Dumpling Day - Dumpling Eating Contest

In celebration of World Dumpling Day on Thursday 26 September, we hosted the ultimate Dumpling Eating Contest with our friends (and dumpling specialists) at Lotus

AIM OF THE GAME WAS…Eat as many dumplings as possible in 2 minutes. The Guinness World Record stands at 30 dumplings eaten, so we are set the challenge to break some records!

When: From 1:00pm, Thursday 26th September

Where: Ground Floor outside Incu Mens

Thank you to the 8 contestants who battled it out LIVE to be crowned the Dumpling Eating Championship winner!

Congratulations to our winners...

1st Place and The Galeries First World Dumpling Day Dumpling Eating Champion - eating 27 dumplings in 2 minutes - Karl T

2nd Place - eating 24 dumplings in 2 minutes - Henry D

Most Entertaining Dumpling Eater went to Lawrence S!

Thanks to the team at Lotus, for supplying the dumplings as well as gifting our winners & contestants.

The event wouldn't have entertained the crowd that we had without our wonderful host, Melissa Leong aka Fooderati plus, DJ Minx on the decks, providing great tunes for the day! 

Until next year, thank you for coming along to celebrate World Dumpling Day at The Galeries!
