2007 Jan. trip to Dali
I have not got so many steamed buns in the past 20s years. But after they became the favorite foods of Xiao Yu, it becomes mine too. I forgot those comments on steamed buns from the people in China.
We were looking for something to eat for dinner. I suggested curry, because I started to miss the favor of it. But it was really difficult while the streets were stuffed with pizza, steak, Japanese Sushi and so on. After a while, wandering almost the busiest streets, I was stopped by one restaurant named Tibet something. We opened the menu, and surprised to notice they had the curry there. So lucky we are! And the luck came again later. After we went back to the guesthouse, we found out one steamed buns restaurant at the corner.
We went there directly next morning without any doubt. It had already been crowded around 8 o’clock. We shared the table with the others.
The smell of the steamed buns was coming from the bamboo-made basket and it spread to everywhere. Luckily we did not need to wait since it is kind of Chinese fast foods. We had those a little white, but a little brown and round buns put before us on the table soon.
After the first taste, our appetite was aroused by this small, oily on the floor restaurant. We went there everyday for breakfast. Surprisedly, we had two baskets of steam buns the next morning, and they were 16 buns. Even after several days for the same breakfast, we had not lost our good appetite on them.
