Hong Kong restaurant serves up ‘Gudetama’ dim sum that pukes and poops

Apparently, the quintessential dim sum experience of simply eating yummy dumplings and the like is a thing of a past. It’s all about making your characterised buns poop and puke now – at Hong Kong restaurant Dim Sum Icon at least.

According to Dramafever, the Tsim Sha Tsui restaurant has created Gudetama-inspired buns that leak out of both ends on request (thank god our bodily functions aren’t so easily manipulated).

If you don’t know who Gudetama is (educate yourself, you fool), he’s a lovely little egg yolk that lays on a comfortable bed of egg white, a character created in – you guessed it – Japan.

Prod the little cutie in the face with your chopsticks at Dim Sum Icon and he’ll begin pouring a savoury yellow substance from his mouth. Better still, give him a cheeky squeeze at the other end and watch in awe as a delectable/disgusting looking brown substance seeps from his bun bum hole.

If you’re not sold on that description alone, check out this entertaining promo video, where the leakage is amplified by booming background music.

While old school local haunts might be slow to adopt this modern take on a traditional foodie art form, they might regret their reserve. The buns have been a hit with teens and young adults, who have been littering their Facebook and Twitter accounts with debatably hilarious videos of the little yolk relieving himself.

However, restaurants geared towards younger generations, like Dim Sum Icon’s new neighbour YUM CHA, are embracing the concept of “Instagram-worthy food”. YUM CHA’s dimsum menu even includes their very own puking custard bun, although it doesn’t poo just yet (unlike Gudetama, or some Rugby 7s revellers). 

Enjoy. If you can.
