They will devour as many Day-Lee Pride gyoza (Japanese potstickers) as possible in ten minutes. Chestnut holds the current world record in the discipline, which he set in 2014 when he ate 384 gyoza in competition.
Taking place during the 79th Los Angeles Nisei Week Japanese Festival, the eating championship is hosted by the Nisei Week Foundation and sanctioned by MLE and the International Federation of Competitive Eating (IFOCE). Admission is free; limited seating and ample standing room will be available. Event will feature food, vendor booths, the Nisei Week Beer Garden, and post-contest entertainment.
