If you’re in Chinatown or Strathcona this Sunday, be sure to make your way to 100 block of Keefer Street. The second annual Golden Dumpling Cook Off and Derby will be heating up Keefer as some of Vancouver’s hippest chefs compete for the Golden Dumpling championship.

This is how it works: local master Chinese chefs will be selling traditional dumplings roadside, while cooks from 20 of Vancouver’s top restos will plate up fresh takes on the little pouches of yum.
