Nen nen pau LOL

We had dinner at Cafe De Tai Thong the other night and we saw this funny looking pau. My older boys said “Look ma! Nen nen pau!” Nen nen means boobs in Hokkien.

Since it looks so unique, I ordered one. The lady told me it is call ‘tai long pau’ which is the opposite of siu long pau hor? Tai long means big dragon and pau means dumpling.

The rows of many varieties of steamed Chinese dumplings.

So, this is what is inside the dumpling. It is a layer of the normal pau dough covering something like a lor mai kai.

The top of the pau can be torn off at the top, revealing the char siew inside.

And that’s nen nen pau for you.

    I love this. Instead of having a char siew bun and a loh mai kai, I can have 2 in 1.

    Very popular in Sri Petaling, KL.
