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

To play, 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.

For your troubles, documenting your experience on Instagram (#dtfroulette) means your pain could win you a dumpling feast for eight worth $250. For $12.80 a game, it could be worth a try.

Din Tai Fung’s dumpling roulette is available from August 1 to 31 at World Square, Westfield Chatswood, Central Park and Westfield Miranda.
