Lucky bun has been around for a while online, and i was pleasantly surprised to come across an actual stand in SM HYPERMART in pasig*. I bought a box of 6 for more or less 250php.
I really liked the filling of the bun! The meat is chunky and flavourful. The bun couldve been better-i found the dough a little too thick and heavy.

Are you fond of those popular Chinese baked buns? We easily associate these delectable treats from the Tim Ho Wan and Tuan Tuan (they call theirs Snow Buns).
There is a food kiosk in Shoppesville Greenhills that can easily satisfy that craving. More so, they offer 4 variants that may very well answer different cravings of flavors. The dough alone of the buns holds the similar addicting texture and flavor that has endeared foodies to this type of treat. A chewy, buttery , dough-y base, with a lightly crumbly-sweet top crust.
This is Lucky Bun.
The buns are baked fresh daily. If you chance to drop by when they open, you'll see how these treats start off from scratch. The raw buns (stuffed with their respective flavors) are rolled then topped with the layer responsible for that addicting crumbly-light glaze.
Among their 4 variants, I loved their BBQ Pork, Veggie Shiitake, and Pineapple.
The BBQ Pork Buns held nicely chewy diced pork cooked in a sweet-salty Char Siu sauce. I found the sweetness level just right. Albeit less "saucier" than the more popular chains, these savory morsels hit my Baked BBQ Pork Bun craving spot on.
The Veggie Shiitake Bun, was a yummy take to an otherwise vegetarian baked bun. The pastry was stuffed with shiitake mushroom bits, chopped mustard greens, and rice noodles mixed with a good savory sauce. This variant makes "healthy" eating addicting.
The Pineapple Bun was a delicious sweet treat. The baked buns were stuffed with actual pineapple bits in a light pineapple custard sauce. I loved the sweet-lightly tarty mix of flavors. More so addicting as this was encased in the delicious baked dough. If you're fond of pineapple pastries/pineapple hopia--- this variant may easily be your new addiction.
They also had the Chicken Curry Bun. The baked treats were stuffed with a lightly spicy mix of minced chicken and potatoes stewed in curry sauce. While it was good, I still loved the previous 3 variants over this.
What I further liked was that Lucky Bun also sells their buns individually. This gives foodies a chance to "taste-test" the various flavors and decide what really tickles their palate. From there, you may purchase a box of 6 or 12 (they allow mixing of the flavors).
I was told that they have branches in the south of the Metro. The branch in Greenhills is their first branch in the center of the city. They plan to open a branch in Podium and SM Hypermart Pasig in the near future.
Lucky Bun comes highly recommended to foodies who love Baked Chinese Buns.
