Thanks to Wikipedia, I just learnt that the RM1.30 bun I bought has no pineapple in it! I had been trying to figure out where the pineapples are hidden.
This bun is called por lor (meaning pineapple in Cantonese) pau because it is supposed to look like cut pineapple.
Whenever I am around the area, I simply must buy one. However, after getting it, I will be forcing everyone to take a bite so as to kill my guilt. You see, this is probably the most fattening and sinful bun around.
Look at the thick chunk of butter? This is the por lor yau (or buttered pineapple bun). The bun is kept warm and crispy in display window at the restaurant. A huge chunk of slightly hardened (cold) butter will be added in upon purchase. So, imagine this glistening and crispy bun on the outside, with fluffy texture inside and a piece of salty butter melting in your mouth?
Purchased it from Restaurant Wong Kok in Jalan Burmah, Penang. (same row as Ice Ice Baby, next to Ed Deli). Only RM1.30 per bun.
