Almond Buns from Koi Palace [Daly City]

sillyeatinggirl | Feb 28, 201301:39 PM     1

I just tried these almond buns from Koi Palace for the first time. I don't know why I haven't tried them before because they are AWESOME!

They are covered in an awesome sweet but crumbly topping with a soft, chewy mochi like (but not as soft as japanese mochi) dough with a slightly thickened almond coconut cream filling. The bottom is browned like it has been baked. Does anyone have any idea how these things are made or at least a Chinese name for the bun? Are these sold at any bakeries like Sheng Kee?

I am trying to hunt down a recipe because I need to eat about a dozen of these bad boys in the privacy of my home.

Picture is from matthewyang.com as I did not take one myself and could not stop eating to take one.

Any help on this would be very much appreciated.
