生肉包

Barli ginkgo dessert (MYR2.50) with a Sang Yuk Bao (MYR1.70) for breakfast

I was told by my friends to remove the outer layer of "skin" from the bao before eating it. Do you do this too?

The meat filling is very compact and I have to slowly eat it to remove any fatty bits from the filling. I have a photo of all the fatty bits that I removed but I am not going to post it here. I like eating char siew bao (BBQ pork bao) better.

  1. I do the peeling too. A friend used to work in a Pao mass production factory, she said the buns were left for quite a while before packaging, and you never know what might come into contact with the surface (skin), could be cockroaches or flies. So better peel it off to be safe.

    1. That's what I was told too but sometimes I don't peel the skin especially if I eat in proper restaurant dim sum place.

    2. You know you live in 1Malaysia right? Even a proper restaurant is not a guarantee of things being done the proper way.
      Better stop planting doubts in your head, hahahaha XD

  2. Ooooo...the filling looks really good. My missus peels off the skin, not me. In fact, I love it! The smoothness, the texture as opposed to the roughness of the skin once peeled.

  4. I think peeling off the skin is for hygiene reasons. The paus may have been handled by unclean hands. But hee..hee...I don't peel it off.

  6. I do peel the skin of the pao.. first for hygiene purpose.. second also to test how fresh the pao is, if you can peel it easily means it's fresh, else probably steamed for days already.. anyway, I only do this in Malaysia~~ :)

  10. Thank you for not posting pic of pork fat pieces. :p :p

    Yeah heard about removing the skin but lazy to do it. The pau is steamed already so germs mostly gone mah. And the stomach is used to street food anyway.
