Hong Kong's best bun
You know that pineapple buns have made it as an iconic Hong Kong food item when the city’s Financial Secretary John Tsang was quoted as saying, “even a pineapple bun can help the economy,” as he was encouraging Hong Kongers to go out and consume more.
The boh loh baau -- literally meaning "pineapple bun" for the crust's resemblance to the fruit -- is one of Hong Kong’s most ubiquitous buns. The flaky, crusty, sugar and egg yolk coated soft bun is typically spotted in bakeries and cha chaan tengs. The boh loh yaau, a pineapple bun with a thick slice of butter sandwiched in the middle, is a celebrated comfort food.
And how much does this economy-boosting bun cost? $3.5 in most places; $6 max.
