Swapping wasabi with an extreme chilli hit (we're not sure which is worse), Din Tai Fung have introduced Spicy Dumpling Roulette to their world-famous menu. The way we see it is this: they're either a) about to ruin the dumpling experience for us all forever or b) turn dumpling eating into an extreme sport.
Din Tai Fung's version can be played with up to six people on their custom roulette tables (presumably so the rest of the restaurant can watch you writhe about in agony). Five of the dumplings are their standard, delicious pork variety; one is a deceptively innocuous parcel packed with chilli.
Spicy Dumpling Roulette is traumatising diners from today until August 31 at Din Tai Fung World Square, Central park, Westfield Chatswood, Westfield Miranda and Melbourne Emporium.
