Looks like Hangzhouers really know how to ‘have a cow,’ or two, or a hundred. As part of the 2014 Hangzhou Gongshu Canal Food Festival, Hangzhouers chow down on a cow-lossal beef feast prepped by 100 chefs, and spread across 138 dining tables totaling 450 meters in length.
The layout allows a whopping 1,099 people to chow down at the same time.
Visitors enjoy over 20 types of dishes made with all different parts of the cow so they can experience traditional farming culture.
A fellow ungulate overlooks the grim melee.
In addition to the beef fest, the Gongshu Canal food festival, which wraps up on May 5, traditionally features a variety of food exhibitions from dim sum displays to beer drinking contests to a lavish wedding-style banquet.
