According to the Guinness World Records the longest sushi roll has been achieved by Tamana Otawara Festival Executive Committee at the Tamana City Labor Athletic Centere in Tamana, Kumamoto, Japan.
The roll measures 9,332 ft and has a width of 8 inches. Over 400 people had to participate in order to create the sushi roll. Inside of the food, it contained pickled Daikon radish, takuan, and sesame.
This is not the only piece of food that has had a super-sized make over. As reported by Thrillist, Qihui Guan and her son, Yuan Lee have created a restaurant in New York City that is essentially a giant’s version of a dumpling. Located in East Village, is a restaurant called Drunken Dumpling. The XL Xiao Long Bao, is a giant soup dumpling that will fill your appetite for days…or even weeks!

Costing $11.75 a piece, you are definitely getting what you paid for. The soup dumplings are approximately six times the six of regular dumplings. Inside of each is “homemade chicken broth, shrimp, and seaweed and arrive in a steam basket which they nearly fill” as stated by Thrillest.

Wondering how one could possibly conquer such a feat? Each serving of the large dumplings are served with multiple straws. Clearly, even the restaurant understand that it is nearly impossible to finish the whole meal! As the old saying goes, there is no “I” in “team”. Share the deliciousness and pass the homemade food around your table of friends. If not, we dare you to try to eat the whole thing yourself. If you do, please send us a video - we want to see!

As we are sure you are shocked to hear, this restaurant fills up fast. On their Facebook page, the Drunken Dumpling announced that they only make 25 XL dumplings per day. They recommend going earlier in the day in order to get your hands on the meal. Soup can be eaten for breakfast, right?
