Lau Sha Bao (流沙包)

I ate one of this bao during the special priced tea time session (3pm to 6pm) at Ying Ker Lou, The Curve. MYR5 for 2 baos in a bamboo basket. The size of the bao is smaller than the ones I had here but it is not that small until I can put the whole bao into my mouth as I wish to.

This time I was not careful and the "salted egg yolk lava" landed on my hand. It was really hot and scalded my hand slightly. We really need to be careful when eating this bao but it is delicious. Since the "lava" is so hot, I think it will be dangerous if the size is small enough for me to eat the whole bao in one mouthful. My throat and mouth would definitely be scalded then.

2 baos for MYR5

The "salted egg yolk lava" which looks a bit dry here because most of it has flowed out onto my hand, ouch!
