Are you ready for the spiciest night of your life? Cranking up the spice-o-meter this fall, Sichuan restaurant Chilli Fagara returns with their infamous Chilli Dumpling Eating Competition on November 20.

Inviting all chilli lovers to a night of dumpling madness, this (literal) heated battle will pit contestants against each other in a series of three-minute rounds, where they will have to stuff their guts with as many spicy dumplings as possible. The winners from each round will then go head-to-head in the grand final and fight for jaw-dropping prizes including a trip for two to Chengdu, an Apple Watch (sponsored by Anson Realty (HK) Limited), dining vouchers valued up to $1,500 provided by Deliveroo Hong Kong Limited and wine bottles valued over $600, sponsored by Sarment Wine Limited.

Specially whipped up by the coveted chefs at Chilli Fagara, each of these fiery meat-filled parcels will be completely drenched in the spiciest of Sichuan chilli oil, an oil so spicy that it will have you sweating in all the wrong places. The competition is free for all to enter but there are only 30 spots available, so hurry and secure your seat at the table by registering via email at

It’s time to loosen up those belt buckles boys and girls, it’s about to get hot.
