Steamed BBQ pork buns?

Michael | Dec 6, 2004 06:35 PM

I'm looking for a place that sells steamed BBQ pork buns in downtown or western Toronto. That is, a round, white, steamed dough bun with _sweet_ BBQ pork inside. They're dry, often have a piece of white paper stuck to the bottom from the steaming - these are not dumplings. Usually Chinese bakeries have them; they're called "char siu bao". They're also called "manapua" and many other names in different cultures.

It seems very logical to me that there should be a bakery or five around the Dundas/Spadina area that sells these, but I've looked and don't see any.
