Jonesy & Amanda, of Australia's WSFM 101.7 radio, have helped achieve a new record for the largest dim sum (yum cha) meal

A total of 764 people tucked into the savoury parcels in an attempt which took place at Tumbalong Park, Sydney in the Australian state of New South Wales.

The event on 5 February was in collaboration with City of Sydney (which also sponsored the event along with Channel 7), WSFM 101.7 radio with both parties deciding they wanted to do "something big".


The title had previously been held since 2013 by the restaurant Chan’s Yum Cha at Home, located in Melbourne, Australia. It seems like Australia love dim sum!


The previous total was 750 people, meaning Jonesy & Amanda clinched the record title with just 14 more people participating.

Approximately 3,100 individual pieces of dim sum served to the participants and general public, free of charge.


The dim sum was supplied by Lets Do Yum Cha, a food truck specialising in the Chinese treat.


Four types of dim sum were served; pork, chicken, and two vegetable varieties - all served with soy sauce, of course.

Those who did not consume at least two types of dim sum were disqualified.


The event was one of many that were held in celebration of the Lunar New Year, as part of 2019 Sydney Lunar Festival.
