i got an email about an event occurring in nyc and actually made it there to experience the wonder!
kuih koci from malaysia
gooey kind of thick outside... amazing sweet coconut inside. not appropriate for the first sampling of the morning, but delicious nonetheless. and then some asshole basically body-checked me trying to get thru the crowd and i dropped the other one. waaahhh
786 pounds, filled with 965 small dumplings. OH. MY. FREAKING. GOD.
jaden of steamy kitchen!
dumpling eating contest. 2 minutes of the most disgusting dumpling smashing against face that has ever taken place. by the guy third from the left. his technique involved breaking up the dumplings in the bowl, dousing them with water, and then smearing them on/in his face like a weird asian facial.
