Vancouver Chinatown Festival, Golden Dumpling Cook Off & Dumpling Derby 2014

This past weekend some of our family and friends went downtown for the 2014 Vancouver Chinatown Festival, Golden Dumpling Cook Off & Dumpling Derby.  It was so much fun.  My husband and I got the “dumpling passports” which allowed us to sample twenty different dumplings from a variety of Vancouver restaurants.  There were Asian, Italian, Mexican and even Indian inspired dumplings.

I even got to meet Chef Vikram from Vij’s (a popular Vancouver Indian restaurant).

My husband, Adam, was a trooper and also tried to compete in the dumpling derby (a 2 minute all you can eat dumpling competition).  Needless to say, he didn’t win.  His strategy of prepping for the competition by sampling 20 dumplings prior didn’t really pay off. Haha!  However, he still looked awfully cute in his dumpling bib.IMG_0654-0.JPG

Vietnamese Noodle Bowl

Had the most amazing Vietnamese vermicelli noodle bowl tonight.  Mmmm grilled lemon grass chicken, noodles & veggies covered in chilli oil.  It was incredible.  Trust me.  There isn’t any evidence to prove it though.
