What is the name of this food?

Post by Lucille » Jan 2nd, '10, 16:46

I was recently in China on vacation and every morning for breakfast we were served a steam bun with a sweet yellow filling. I loved them. I would like to try to reproduce the buns at home, but I can't remember what was in the center. I tried Google, but it wasn't must help. Please help. Also, I have found recipes online and in books, but if you have a favorite I would love to read it. Thanks in advance.

Assuming is was a classic filling and not a special recipe, my guess is you were eating 奶黃包. Nai huang bao is filled with a sweet yellow custard.

It was delicious. However, my attempt was not. I will try again later. I enjoy experimenting with food. If anyone has any interesting ideas, I would love to try them out in my kitchen.

Since I'm not really good at food names, what is the difference between Nai huang bao and Xaio Long bao (not sure if I'm correct)? By the way, nai huang bao looks really delicious. :)

Xiao long bao is sometimes called Shanghai soup dumplings. It looks more like a dumpling than a stream bun because it's unleavened and thus thin and more translucent, even though the texture is not quite the same as either. Also, it's filled with meat unlike the Nai huang bao and has gelatin like a dumpling to make it juicy.

I thought it might had been mung been fillings but that might be a different variant.

Thanks for the name. I tried this a few times at dim sum restaurants and thought it was pretty good.

Reminds me, I should try it again sometime, lol. :lol

I want to try a classic Korean dish. Bibimbap. However, I can not find gochujang (chili bean paste) sauce. Does anyone know of a substitute?
