香蒜火腿包 (Garlic Ham Bun)

Mom always surprises me with her selections of bread. Well, I just did not expect her to bring home any today. Bless her that she knew I did not go out to eat today and would need something for my blog! So, my ‘adventures’ of tasting T&T’s new batch of buns continue.

Today, I tried the 香蒜火腿面包 (Garlic Ham Bun). I was never a fan of processed meat, but this I could handle. It was less processed, tasting more like a lean, thinly sliced piece of pork bacon. It actually tasted a lot like Canadian bacon – perhaps it was Canadian bacon, or something very similar at least. It was a bit on the salty side, but the bread made up for it. It was super soft and moist, just the way I like it! Despite it being in the chilled case because it contained meat, the bread was the perfect texture, moist and chewy and rather sticky. I wonder if the moisture came from the fact that it had meat and a garlic pesto in it to give off heat which eventually turns into moisture and is soaked up by the bread. Regardless, I love sticky Chinese breads. They have the most wonderful texture out of all bread. Actually, I just like it to be moist and chewy – that’s all.

It was super fresh, and the garlic pesto on top made sure of that as well. I would have liked more of the garlic, not just because it looks so green and pretty, but because I love, and I mean LOVE, garlic-flavoured food. The green was so bright, complementing the shape of the bun nicely. It is just that more garlic would have made it just so much better!
