I seriously wanted to love these buns after seeing Ben Wintle of Booky fame sniffing a boxful but after a few hours in the box it was not appetizing anymore (except for the pineapple buns).
Eat it while its hot, dont let it go cold like your whithering relationship with that so called signicant other. The sizes were uneven too. Had to ask to get the bigger sized buns. I espouse buying local but i'd rather buy those in Binondo or the more famous ones in Aura or Megamall. 45pesos a bun is quite expensive when i can get it cheaper and more uniformly baked by more established baked bun bakers. Will try again very soon.

About the photo, took a page out of Peanut D's book with what she did on Nonna's dough balls. #cute
Back to the buns... Chinese food needs more exposure in the south and this a good step in that direction! It isn't my favorite cuisine but its pretty obvious that us southerners sometimes have to head north since Chinese food here's quite limited. Mostly for take out, the buns come in 4 heavenly flavors: pork bbq, veggie, chicken curry, and pineapple. Baked just right with a softly crisp outer shell and piping hot and flavorful fillings. The veggie bun filling tastes a lot like what they put into Chinese lumpia, the pork bbq is your typical asado, and the chicken curry speaks for itself.
But my favorite, and even this surprised me, is the pineapple filled bun. Wow! Great as a snack or as a dessert. The flavor of the sweet & sour pineapple just goes so well with the sweet bread. And they use whole pineapple for the jam too! As can be seen when you bite into pineapple chunks.
Took home a box, ate 5 pieces out of the 12. Came home later in the day and the box was gone!
