Asian food lovers are fuming over a video they say "manhandles" traditional soup dumplings.
The video published by Time Out London on Facebook shows diners attempting to burst their Xiao Long Bao (little basket buns) with chopsticks and throw out the soup.
Many point out the traditional way is to suck out the soup and eat the dumplings.
The steaming hot broth is, for many, the most prized part of each Xiao Long Bao.
Characterised by its translucent skin, each dumpling is filled with juicy minced pork and broth and eaten with ginger strips and vinegar.
The video has been widely panned by food lovers on Facebook, many of whom criticised the "lack of education" that went into filming.
"The entire video was one big blasphemy. I'm screaming internally and not in an excited way," said Kenneth Ting. "That is not how you eat Xiao Long Bao. It's a complete waste of something so good."
Similar anger was expressed by other users who watched the video, like Singaporean Jasmine Tan. She wrote: "Watching you waste all that soup is akin to someone getting fish and chips and peeling the batter off."
Contacted by BBC News, Time Out London said: "We love nothing more than discovering and celebrating incredible food from around the world.
"We burst soup dumplings to show people in our video the delicious soup that was inside them, so they could enjoy the visual treat of the broth that is tasted but not seen.
"Later on, you see the journalist biting into the unburst dumpling and enjoying the 'explosion' on her taste buds."
