TVB Pay Vision is adding the brand-new gourmet channel TVB Food to its bouquet as of (Friday) September 24, kicking off the launch with a special event featuring hot dog eating champion Takeru Kobayashi (and at the channel's launch event in Hong Kong on Sunday September 19, 2010).

TVB Pay Vision organized a challenge with dozens of contestants, with six of them winning the heats. The winner, Johnny Wu, was presented with HK$10,000 in prize money by Kobayashi.

TVB Food is Hong Kong's only gourmet channel in Cantonese. The offerings is tailor-made for local audiences, and features celebrity chefs and culinary experts. Three brand-new shows are being produced and will kick off with the Kobayashi specials this week.

An exhibition match pitted Kobayashi against TV actors King Kong and Anderson Junior and the Champion showed the audience how to devour Hong Kong's most beloved egg tarts! After trouncing the 2 actors, Kobayashi revealed TVB Food's channel logo tattooed on his famous stomach.

Kobayashi is in town to also record shows for TVB Food before flying back to the United States where he lives nowadays. “I am really excited to meet with my Hong Kong fans again as I have not been here for a few years. And thanks to TVB Pay Vision, I got to try another signature Hong Kong dish!” he said.
