Gung Haggis Fat Choy!

There are many people in the world who think there is nothing more disgusting than a haggis. Those people are wrong. For truly disgusting cuisine, we must look to the west coast of North America, where every January 25th, thousands of people celebrate a combination of Robert Burns Night and Chinese New Year: Gung Haggis Fat Choy.

Gung Haggis Fat Choy was founded in 1998 by a Chinese-Canadian College student who thought it would be really really funny to dress up in a kilt and eat some haggis. He was right; it was. Since Toddish McWong’s original party hundreds of Chinese-Scots (who knew?) have taken up the cause, turning GHFC into a full-fledged festival. A CBC (some sort of weird Canadian TV channel or something) broadcast in 2002 further boosted the popularity of the event, and soon Mr. McWong was staging the event all along the west coast. But back to the food…

Gung Haggis Fat Choy 2007 featured the following: a haggis dim sum buffet, including items such as deep fried haggis won tons, haggis haw-gow (shrimp dumplings), haggis su-mei (pork dumplings), and haggis lettuce wraps. Yumorama.

It can't always be about the hot dogs.
