London - Best Baked Chinese Cha-Siu (Barbecued Pork) Buns at Kowloon Bakery

klyeoh | Jan 10, 201212:31 PM

For the longest time, visitors from Singapore to London would invariably descend upon Kowloon Restaurant's bakery in Chinatown for their luscious, large baked buns filled with the most delicious Chinese BBQ pork (cha-siu) filling ever! I remembered back in the early 1990s when I was a financial accountant in Singapore Airlines - we'd plead for our colleagues who're flying to London to pack boxes of these BBQ pork buns for us. Singapore Airlines air-stewardesses would lug dozens of these BBQ pork buns for their friends & family back home - nothing we had in Singapore, or Hong Kong, tasted like these buns from London Chinatown.

I was back at Kowloon bakery again today, and was really pleased to find that their buns still tasted every bit the same as I remembered them from 2 decades back :-)
