This is the third time I make steamed buns also the second time for the roses buns. Steamed buns are one of the main breakfast in an Asian family. One hot steamed buns with a cup of hot soy milk are the typical breakfast in Taiwan and Hong Kong. People like to grab this takeaway and eat it on the way to work.

The heatwave has been attacked England in the last few weeks badly. Heatwave in England normally stays for few days maximum every year. But this year seems like to stay for longer. Of course, people won’t like the cold, damp and miserable weather in the long winter, neither do I!
Vegan Pineapple bun (HK style)/ Japanese Melon Pan/ メロンパン ~ 純素港式菠蘿包
This is the follow-up story from the previous post: Vegan Cocktail Buns. Now is the time to achieve my promise. Actually, I wrote this post a few months ago, just forgot to post it. Sorry!
The name of this bread roll call for pineapple or melon, but it will disappoint you all if you like either of them. Because they don’t have any pineapple nor melon inside the buns neither. 🙂
Pineapple bun is the name come from Hong Kong. Melon-pan, the ‘Pans’ mean bread in Japanese. Which is borrowed from the Portuguese and they make quite a variety of “Pan” in Japan. This is another popular traditional Japanese snack bread. A typical melon-pan is made of a bread dough covered with a thin layer of a cookie dough. The name comes from the melon like appearance, such as a cantaloupe.
In French cuisine, Fougasse is a type of bread typically associated with Provence but found (with variations) in other regions. Some versions are sculpted or slashed into a pattern resembling an ear of wheat or leafy shape.
This flat, round Fougasse loaf is popular all over France and is a cousin of the Italian Focaccia.
Have you seen my previous post: the Mexican Buns? There have three most popular buns in Hong Kong. The Mexican bun is one of them. Lots of people in Hong Kong will have these buns for their quick breakfast or lunch. Today, I like to share the second one, called ‘ cocktail buns’. Have you heard about it? How is the name come from? Those are not my concern, I just like to eat it. Simple as that!
And the third one, I promise you, will share it later. 🙂
