... I had this in Macau. Gonna try this Kim Gary's version of pork bun.

Rating: 1.5/10

The Macau’s pork bun I had was quite nice with rather heavy garlic aroma. Somehow, this one was just plain pork bun without any garlic aroma or taste in it. It was utterly yucky cause the pork patty isn’t that nice just to be eat as a burger.

We were leaving Macau very early in the morning to take the 1st ferry ride to Hong Kong. Hence we don’t have any time to hunt for breakfast around the area where we stay. It was until after we’ve secured our ferry tickets, we went to look for food. There was a food court which was already in business early in the morning. We were left with around 10mins before the ferry depart. No time for anything luxurious, so we got a pork bun each. Seeing that pork bun was something recommended by AC as a must have in Macau, I went on ahead with the suggestion.

... finally, the infamous pork bun I heard from everyone. Or maybe just one fella.

I started ripping it apart when we were on the ferry. 1st bite was onto the crispy and crunchy bun. I was amazed at how crunchy it was as I was only expecting soft bun like normal burger. Then the pork patty was quite nice, with heavy garlic fragrance. It help dispels the stinking smell from the pork and it has a tad of crispiness on it. Overall, the whole pork bun experience was really good, but it left me with stinking after taste, thanks to the enormous amount of garlic used.

The bun cost me MOP17, which was about RM8 over here. Some serious bun it was.

I was told that the hotdog buns served in AirAsia was supplied by 1901. Though it doesn’t show any sign, the size of the hotdog do looks similar. Somehow, I prefer this over conventional 1901’s hotdog and bun. The bun used here wasn’t as chewy as those from 1901 and the hotdog actually tasted salty, as compared to 1901’s which was rather tasteless. The honey mustard mayo was a plus.

I liked their chiffon cake quite a lot. Previously, I’ve tried both the vanilla chiffon and Japanese chiffon cake. This time, I bought the Japanese chiffon cake again. Though they tasted quite similar, but Japanese chiffon has larger pores in it. They are very soft and plushy, very nice indeed. Unfortunately though, the polo bun wasn’t that nice. And the mushroom onion bread was a bit too costly.

AC said he gotta go pick up some buns that he ordered from a hair saloon. Yes, a hair saloon, selling buns, only a couple shops lot away from DoReMi. I was dead the hungry by the time we were heading there. So I told him there’s a Seafood Ler restaurant where it has pretty nice fu yong egg rice which I had a couple of days back. He agreed to have dinner there as well, after picking up the buns.

My hand was practically shaking from the low sugar level in my bloodstream due to the hunger I was experiencing. I had to wait for him to pack all the stuff, then went outside to snap some photos of them. There were peanut butter filling, read bean, custard and sweet potatoes. I wanted the peanut butter but my strict diet said NO. So I settled with sweet potatoes. Should have opted for custard but it was already being packed nicely in the packaging of 4. We were given 2 extra samples by the lady boss, a peanut butter and a sweet potatoes. I guess I don’t have much choice.

The filling was rather generous. The bun itself was a little bit sweetened, which was pretty neat. Say bye bye to my strict diet because I just realised that I can’t take yeast as well, after having my 2nd bite. I would wanna try their custard bun next time. One was good enough to stop my shaky hand. I guess 2 would make me full already, not because of the size, but from the glutinous feeling of having the similar taste. For RM1.80 each, I find it rather costly, but the boss said outside were selling for RM2.50 each for charcoal buns.
