Lunch!

Can you guess what this is?!

Hehe, this was lunch! More specifically, it was Kong Bak Pau! Kong Bak is a Hokkien term and is belly meat which has been braised in a sweetish sauce. This was ready-cooked! It just needed a quick steam to get it all ready to be eaten!

The Kong Bak. Do you see the fatty layers of the meat?! It was quite scary! :P

Steamed flat pau to go with the Kong Bak

To eat, just put a piece of meat into the split of the steamed pau and savour! :) Delicious but a bit too light! I'm starving now already so off to hunt down some snacks before dinner!

I don't think I have eaten it with that kind of pao before. Usually eat it with the flower type that Esquire Kitchen serves.

Boo - I've never eaten flower pau! It probably tastes the same though.

Foodcrazee & S-kay - Err...maybe it's hong bak! *blushes* My Hokkien's very bad! So can't confirm! Hehe...

Emotionalistic & Babe - I'm fat-phobic so I definitely removed all the fat! I won't eat meat with any hint of fat! :P

Too light?
OMG!! Look at that thick layer of fat! LOL!!
I think in Canto it's called "Khau Yoke", and normally comes with yam, right?
