    wish there was an asian bakery near here

    I would eat so many red bean buns

    When I went to Korea during the summer, I swear I gained 10 pounds just from the Korean bakeries. I ate so many red bean buns.

    I would be the happiest man on earth if it were possible to survive solely on red bean products

    cha shiu bow!

    I like the baked ones more than the steamed

    the baked ones are "cha siu chan bao" in Cantonese (or cha shao can bao in proper Mandarin pinyin) or "cha siu sou" (cha chao sou), depending on which of the two typical types you got

    the steamed ones are proper "cha siu bao"

    I completely forgot about fusion. I've always wanted to try it. My friend said he had this pepper steak with a type of kim chi salad and said it was amazing.
    this place is really good:

    http://www.moimrestaurant.com/index.html

    it's all fusion fancy like and i didn't expect big portions but i ordered the spicy pork ribs (about $20, standard fare for korean) and they fucking brought me TWO huge racks both just smothered in the delicious spicy sauce

    it was the best meal

    That place looks amazing. I should look up some restaurants that are in Seattle.

    Goddammit I'm so hungry right now. When I get home for Thanksgiving I'm going to gorge myself on Thanksgiving food, and the day after, Korean food. MOM I'M COMING HOME.

    guys Southeast Asian food is the fucking BOMB

    Thai goes without saying

    Vietnamese is fucking great as hell, their shit tends to be tangy without spicy and it so light and doesn't involve lots of oils

    Indonesian is its own brand of spicy and holy fuck the way they do their fish is unfuckingbeatable if you like spicy

    Singaporean is a mish-mash of Malaysian, Indian, Indonesian and Hokkien goodness

    siu long bow (or xiao long bao in Mandarin) is a Shanghainese dumpling that is made of the thinnest skin and with a nice simple filling that consists of soup and pork and sometimes crab roe

    it is so good and I love watching foreigners eat it while trying to also manage the soup inside, it's so fucking good holy fuck I have burned myself too many times getting to the soup too fast

    how do they get the soup inside?

    Red bean paste is a sort of comfort food for me. My grandfather eats buns with red bean paste in them because they're soft and he has bad teeth. He would give me one all the time when I was younger. Sadly now, his teeth are even more weak so they're too hard for him. Eats watered down red bean porridge.

    seriously steamed pork buns/cha siu bow/cha chao bao is my favorite dim sum, it is almost always ordered when my family does a Cantonese lunch

    others include shrimp dumplings/ha gow/xia jiao, pork dumplings/siu mye/shao mai, and chicken feet/fung tsao/feng jiao

    In Korea we've got something similar. It's called pot-bing-soo. Pot means red bean paste. It's a pile of shaved ice with a little milk (or coconut milk or condensed milk) with red bean paste and some kind of powder made from what I think is a bean. But now they've gone more crazy and add a little cereal, little bits of rice cake, marshmallows, and lots of different kinds of fruit. So cooooold and fresh.

    yes

    THAT is the proper color for the bun

    it should not be pink or bright red and if it is, you know they're using food coloring to tweak it

    I have that issue up in Shanghai, where half the Cantonese steamed pork buns you find here are obviously manipulated in appearance with food coloring and they are just AWFUL

    another awesome dessert is (and I don't even know what it's called in Chinese) this giant pile of chopped fruit that has been dipped in hot caramel and is served in a giant sticky pile on a plate

    and you yank a piece of the fruit off and dip it into ice water to solidify the caramel and then you eat it

    it is so messy

    but sweet lord that'll drop a diabetic in thirty seconds flat
