Pang Susi – 甘薯餐包

Sweet potato buns stuffed full with tender minced meat filling, Pang Susi is a delightful snack originated and handed down from the Eurasian community. These healthy looking buns are not complete without the savoury fillings – the complex blending of flavours and textures from spices, tender pork belly and candied winter melon creates a heavenly fusion, which the sweet potatoes give a moist touch and a beautiful yellow-orange finishing hue to the bun.
