Went out and had yum cha today (yum!) then stopped by the Chinese bakery and picked up among other things a Charcoal Bamboo Bun. I’ve been wondering what they were like since I saw them. Unfortunately I can’t eat it myself due to a food allergy, so I acted like a gastronomic voyeur while my wife tried it. Here's the black bun on a black plate on a black table.
It’s sort of a mild garlic bread. It’s The Garlic Bread of Darkness. Or maybe it's The Bread of Garlic Shadows. Or The Yin Bun of Garlicness. Either way I wish they made a gluten free one I could eat.
