Delicious Chinatown Baked Buns

In Chinatown there was a small shop selling baked buns filled with meat, pumpkin and other delicious fillings. There was a big line outside the shop which is always a good sign. I opted for the meat bun and inside this is what I found. The outside was a crispy baked bread shell. Inside was flavorful meat and a layer of green onions. Amazing.

While we were standing in line one of the shop owners gestured us to come look and see how the buns were cooked. These little bun pods are stuck to the sides of the oven. There are coals at the bottom that heat and bake the buns. Such a great traditional baking method.

  1. I love China buns. I and my then boyfriend (now husband) discovered Mr. Meng restaurant here in Bangkok, on the 5th floor of MBK and it became our favorite since then. Everytime we dine there, I always order the buns.

    p.s. I sent you an inquiry message at your hotmail box, I hope you got it. Looking forward to your response. Thanks
