HK Cafe Fans: Pineapple Bun w/Butter

Hey folks,

Something has been bothering me for a while now and I need to get it off my chest. The other day, I was at an HK style cafe in Richmond and I saw two of the most skinniest and anorexic stick figured Hongers in my life chow down on a fresh pineapple bun with a slab of butter. Yes, that's correct - a slab of butter!

Okay. Seriously, who in their right mind does this? That is disgusting! A little butter, okay - fine. But a huge ass freakin' slab of butter? That makes no sense. Is this normal in HK or something? If so, why?

Please help. I am having a hard time understanding this....cultural phenomenon. Thanks.

Direct translation would be "Pineapple Oil"

It's one of the ways hongers enjoy fresh oven-made Pineapple bun by slicing the bun in half then putting a thick slice of butter in it.

Good God, are you serious?!

The worst thing was - they ate the whole thing without taking any of the butter off!

Thanks slowguy. And you're the butter that melts onto my bun.

On a more serious note, I'm going to try this...thing next time.

TBH the butter won't make you fat, it's the bun that will!

Unfortunately most places tend to use slabs of margarine, not butter, which defeats all the goodness that butter has.

Butter is great stuff, whenever I use it I always cut off a piece and just eat it whole.

Yes!

This is where I saw it! I was having breakfast with my lady friend and beside us (the communal sharing table) these two skinny Hongers were chowin' down on this baw law yau. I was betting my lady friend they weren't going to eat the whole thing with the entire slab of butter but nope - I was wrong and had to cover the tab.

Don't know about the health factors, but a fresh pineapple bun with butter is really good. I usually get one every 2 months. I try not to eat them more frequent than that.

In fact, I just had one today at the Boss in Metrotown.

If you try it in HK, a fresh bun with butter and a nice cold milk coffee or a dong yeen yen. Heaven.

From what I know, which is very limited, Lido is one of the few restaraunts/cafe that still gives a large slab of solid butter with their pineapple buns. This is how it's supposed to be like, even in Hong Kong, no?

According to my aunt, the real deal is a cold solid slab of butter, none of the individually packaged packs of soft butter.

The bun has to be warm and fresh. The crust on the top has to be crispy.
The butter has to be cold and thick.
Put it in the bun and eat it when it melts half way.
OMG, goodness in your mouth.

Don't ruin it by melting the butter in the bun until it turns all to oil.

You don't need to go to a restaurant to try this. Just go to a Chinese bakery and buy home a block of butter from the store. But the bun has to be reheated by an oven

It's not a "tyrade" it's the truth. If you didn't eat any carbs, you could eat all the butter in the world, and you wouldn't get fat. In fact, you'd get thinner. And your blood profile will improve.
