Chinese "giant" bao

Ping | Jul 25, 2001 07:01 PM

I really miss the giant steamed bao I used to get in san Francisco. Unlike a cha siu or chicken bun, this one has a bit of everything, not unlike the sticky rice steamed in ti leaves: pork, chicken, sausage, hard-boiled egg, maybe dried shrimp. I believe that I saw someone eating one on East Broadway last weekend, but I have yet to find any in the bakeries or dumpling makers. Anyone seen them around?
