Crispy buns with condensed milk, Hong Kong – 奶油猪仔包, 香港

One of my favourite delicacies from Hong Kong is the crispy buns with condensed milk sold at the Tsui Wah Restaurants.

Despite being ‘only’ a bread bun, crispy buns with condensed milk are a must-eat in the fragrant city. They are cut in half, toasting the surface but keeping the inside soft, with a thin coat of oil and sweetened with condensed milk on top, best accompanied with milk tea! 猪仔包 means, by the way, piglet or piggy bun, and I suppose this name comes from their shape… 😉

Some franchises like the Tsui Wah have a counter facing the street, where from early morning to 11am (the ‘breakfast time’) they sell an extensive assortment of buns and tarts to take away.

But the crispy-milky ones are my favorite, manna for me, and the fragrance when they are just made landing on the table, can revive you from the worst sleepless night.

And the perfect song to listen while enjoying them:
