Chinese Burgers, American Paus ( a candid comparison)

when a few fair Maidens meet some Cowboys


...from the mystical Orient,
team Dim Sum, ancient, classical, meticulous & infinitely many

char siew pau (small) and tai pau ( Xtra big ) , the incorrigible Mamasans
inside da small one ... fatty single-stroke roast pork

whats in da the big 7 cylinder one. overcrowded chunky chickens and boiled eggs

'lor mai kai', slightly overweight grumpy ex fav concubine now chief chambermaid... glutinuous rice with old chicken bits and one black mushroom

clandestine runaway fish ball trapped in sweet dark sauce and redhot chilli sauce.

petite come-take-me-quick 'siew mai' in oneway see-throughs

one more sensuous backup green

' har kau', bittersweet cholesterolled seductress from da oceans, bane of de lusty old Chinamen
...& fresh from de other side of the Pacific ... charging into the narrow Straits of Malacca
... introducing...from da Wild Wild West
. McCowboys , easygoing, no frills, techsavvy
debonair global onebun wonder fillet in white creamy tartar sauce.

best pal gung ho hot doggy .... soaked in borrowed French mustard

& bouncing cheerleading potato chippies so to overwhelm the bountiful neverending rice threat of da tricky oriental temptresses.

enter da real thing ...
da Yankees's high tech bubbly neutraliser against the inscrutable Chinese tea.
A most leisurely gastronomical adventure when East meets West.

    da "hargau" looks really yummy but must say that dimsums are quite bad for health though.... high in fats, high in colestrol....what else? compare to burgers, which one much healthier?
    UnkaLeong said…
    Haiyo...Why did I click? Why? Hahah...Good Dim Sum is hard to come by in Bangkok.. *sighs*

    Wondering what is the type of flour they used for making the pau? From the pic,it's most probably made using traditional method with bleached flour. Nowadays,most of the pau made from high protein flour imported from Taiwan (those with white smooth skin), looked nice but it tastes terrible and smells full of ammonia :(
