For the next two days you can stretch your stomach and eat everything in sight. Or you can starve yourself in an attempt to make room for the big day. Whatever your training methods, move over Adam Richmond, because Man vs. Food hasn't seen anything like the Inaugural Dim Sum Eating Contest at Kapow! Noodle Bar.
On Sunday, 24 contestants will eat as much dim sum as their stomachs can hold in an effort to win cash prizes and gift certificates for meals at Kapow! "The contest is a way for us to kick off our new Sunday brunch and to give attention to our new cocktails and new brunch menu items," said Anna Feinberg, the restaurant's General Manager.
Register on the restaurant's Facebook page to compete in the 8 minute contest yourself or just watch others be gluttonous at Kapow! Noodle Bar, located at 431 Plaza Real in Mizner Park.
The contest begins at 3 p.m. and contestants must arrive by 2:30 p.m. The entry fee for all competitors is $15 payable at the event. Kapow! is open daily for lunch and dinner, Sunday through Thursday, 11:30 a.m. to midnight and Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. Happy hour is Monday through Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. Meals range from $10 to $30.
