The city of Changsha, Shenyang is famous for its traditional dish: dumpling. Each year there are dumpling eating competitions. This year's competition "China's King of Appetite" was held south of the East road in Shanyang, which is called "dumpling city."

A 16 year old junior, Peng Siliang, won the title of "China's King of Appetite" this year by defeating last years winner Yizhong Pan. He ate 92 dumplings in 15 minutes.

Prior to the competition, players start by topping the dumplings with water, which makes the dumplings cold, and easily separated. Some even sprinkle with chili oil, or vinegar according to their own taste.

When the contest starts, players begin to eat as quickly as possible, but a lot of players had to quit after eating 50 dumplings.

Peng Shi-Liang raised his hands in victory while he was still munching his 92nd dumpling.
