My mouth really misses having bo lo yau for breakfast. My arteries are proabably sighing in relief.

A pineapple bun, for those of you who have never heard of it, is a popular snack in Hong Kong and Macau. Also known as Bo Lo Bao, it is a pillowy soft bread with a crunchy and sugary top crust which looks like a pineapple, hence the name. There is no pineapple in the bun.
