Ready, Set, GYOZA: Annual Potsticker Eating Contest Returns!
If you are hungering for a weekend outing that's sure to be a gut-buster, you might want to check out the annual Day-Lee Foods World Gyoza Eating Championship as part of the 72nd Annual Nisei Week Japanese Festival in L.A.'s Little Tokyo.
As part of the cultural festivities, international eating superstars Joey "Jaws" Chestnut and last year's winner, Patrick Bertoletti, will join amateur eaters to see who can pack the most gyoza in their gullets in ten minutes. Bertoletti, incidentally, set the current world record--264 gyoza--at last year's showdown.
To witness the action, head to the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center Plaza on Saturday, August 18 for the 2:30 competition.
