nai wong bao in los angeles?
wow i havent been on chowhound since it was a simple no-frills text based message board.
it's all fancy-fied now. sweet.
anyway im just back from china and im on a search for these yummy steamed buns with the yolky looking stuff in the middle, im told it's called Nai Wong Bao.
Any help is greatly appreciated..
I know them as "lai wong bao" (奶皇包 but with a HK accent). They're often called "cream bao" or "yellow custard bao" here.
Any dim sum house will make a takeaway for you of them -- try MHL (Garvey just barely east of Garfield), Yum Cha Cafe (Atlantic Blvd next to Shun Fat market, or inside the HK Super Store at Valley and San Gabriel Blvds.), any takeaway department of a dim sum house (888, NBC, Seafood Paradise, etc., etc.), or BBQ Unlimited (Sherman Way in North Hollywood or Melrose near the 101).
