New Steamed Dumpling Record

Takeru Kobayashi is in for some pain. He recently swallowed 83 steamed dumplings in 8 minutes. story.

I’ve done a quarter of that on a good day at Empire Garden in Boston (the best dim sum in town). It’s not so bad until you drink something, then it expands. Some things are worth the pain, and dim sum is one of them. Here’s raising a cup of chrysanthemum tea to Kobayashi-san.
