The masters of xiaolongbao in Melbourne – Din Tai Fung – have come up with a slightly sadistic roulette.

To play Spicy Dumpling Roulette, a team of up to six will take turns spinning a dial. With luck you won’t eat the lone, innocent-looking xiaolongbao stuffed with Carolina Reaper chillis – currently rated the hottest in the world.

Documenting your experience on Instagram (#dtfroulette) could see you rewarded with a dumpling feast for eight worth $250. For $12.80 a game, it’s worth a try, and the potential pain.

Din Tai Fung’s dumpling roulette is available from August 1 to 31 at Emporium Melbourne.
