As a Taiwanese, I really like to eat pineapple bun and pork floss bun. I prefer going to the local bakery.

Author Christian Alvarez ( ago)
7:40 is called shopao in the Philippines but it usually is steamed.

So this is the basic rule at Chinese bakeries: The more unhealthy, the better

Author Karsten Ngai-Natsuhara ( ago)
Huh. I've got a Chinese bakery at my local mall, and I ordered like 9 buns for a long weekend. I didn't like the tuna bun they had, but man, was that a fun weekend

Author DDG LivesWell ( ago)
I've never eaten at a Chinese Bakery.
Mikey when I come to to NY. I will follow you, Dan and Yi anywhere. The food looks unbelievable and hanging out with you guys would be soooo fun.

Author GW McCauley ( ago)
I have had the first 3 buns, the ufo one I called the holly grail of hot dogs. I want the tuna bun.

Author J Huang ( ago)
If you're in Japan next time, look for bakeries that allow for all you can eat on site. Chinese bakeries got its influence from Hong Kong and Japan too.

Mike, with how much you come here to Las Vegas, have you been to Diamond Bakery in Chinatown? After watching this video I think you need to.

Author sushiboats ( ago)
I am so hungry.....

Author xShadowGengarx ( ago)
ball-tastic lol

Author Orange Fender ( ago)
Growing up in Manhattan china town as a kid, after school would always go and get a taro bun :) funny to see this on the internet. Thinking back to my childhood when no one knew about this stuff besides Chinese people because there was no world wide web in 1989.

Author Chimpangel ( ago)
I like the two roast pork bun, coconut bun, and egg tarts.

Author Dean Flet ( ago)
Sesame ball is mine then the white bun with pork but my brother in law knows of a place in China Town in San Francisco CA that has white bun fill with sweet red beans in it and I like those as well. I like drinking hot Jasmine Tea when eating Sesame Ball and the White Buns with Sweet Red Beans yeah yum yum.🍵🍩🍰🍜🍛🍲☕

Author cfriedel123 ( ago)
I was with you until the red bean filling. I have tried it in China, Japan, China Town in NYC, and Toronto. In all places I have never been able to eat a whole cookie, bun, or anything else with red bean paste in it. Am I doing it wrong or is it just one of those things you love or hate?

Author Christina Walker ( ago)
a hotdog in a bun is a kolache

Author Abi Macatangay ( ago)
Filipinos love the roast pork bun (siopao), sesame Michu round bun & the pork floss bun💕

Author momkatmax ( ago)
Okay alert all kitties about the tuna bun! Sounds good for humans too.
Are the sweet ones not sugary sweet like Japanese pastry?

Author izumi koma ( ago)

Author kumquats ( ago)
I also like the bun with the ham and egg in and my mum's favourite is the Gai Mai Bau

Author Cherry Nguyen ( ago)
I love the sesame bun so much, but I have the viet version where it's mung bean and it's really small. Like if you put your thumb and index finger in a circle shape it's about that big ¯\_(✿• ͜ •)_/¯

Author Sue Jiang ( ago)
i don't know if this is a common bun or not since it's been a while since i've stepped foot in a chinese bakery but everyone has to try the tall muffin-like bun with a few sliced almonds on top. it is fluffy goodness!

Author SM JF ( ago)
You should do a mukbang!!!!

Author katherine louey ( ago)

Author Inevitable fitness ( ago)
yum!!! I wanna try them!!! idk if I would like them all but I would try them! I made pretzel buns with bbq baby back ribs inside and they were amazing!

Author artytoons ( ago)
Carb overload. Creamed corn bun is nice. Not cornbread but cooked corn kernels on top of the bun. Like hotdog bun and coconut cream bun.

Author Maimuna Babou ( ago)

Those dislikes… I have a feeling that those are just Asian haters lmao

Author L D ( ago)
I went to a chinese bakery in manhattan's china town the week of Chinese New Year and it was so full and no one spoke english so i just pointed at the pineapple buns and they were DELICIOUS and warm. If it hadn't been so busy and chaotic i would have looked around for other things to try but the pineapple bun is amazing, so so amazing, love the coating on top, the color, and how soft the bread is. Love this video for introducing me to more things i can order next time i go to a chinese bakery. You're a cool guy Mikey.

Author Miriam Hernandez ( ago)
The bun and the hotdog here in Texas is called a kolache and it's given warm.

Author Ernestine Blackie ( ago)

Author telephonesrule ( ago)
Can you type out the chinese names for each bun in the annotations? There's a chinese bakery an hour from me, but I never know what is what.

Author Panagiotes Koutelidakes ( ago)
I wouldn't have thought of that, but while it might appear weird to some other nations, the first two buns are common items in Greece as well (the term we use for all such buns filled with sausage is "λουκανικόπιτα" — literally "sausage pie").

Author Bagus Widodo ( ago)

Pork floss bun YAAASSS!! love me some pork floss. We have a lot of these buns at a chain in Australia called Breadtop. I am also a fan of the hot dog. :D

Author Allissa Khilmer ( ago)

What bakery is this? Based on the look of the tuna bun, I'm guessing Iris in Flushing? I only noticed the tuna bun recently, it looks so good but I wasn't sure about the tuna, but you've convinced me to try it on my next trip to Flushing. Personally, I can't leave Flushing without a hot dog bun (luckily I'm only there every 2-4 months!).

Author Reinier Dominic ( ago)

That sesame bun is life...for my birthday my friend, who knows my addiction to these, gave me two of them instead of birthday cake XD I did NOT complain!

Author Marcus ( ago)
I feel ashamed now knowing that I'm chinese, I live in vancouver (lots of chinese people there), and I don't even recognize half of these buns.

Also, I think it's called Pineapple bun (Balo Bao, or something), because the top sort of resembles a pineapple.

Author Mendra ( ago)
He eat for us people!!! xD
Keep claim and feel full.

Author Rachelle de la Rosa ( ago)
my mom and dad always used to bring me those hot dog things from argyle in chicago and i would like 10 at a time

Author Jalexie Lu ( ago)
Pork floss with a little bit of seaweed on a bun is amazing! A few Chinese bakeries i went to had the pork floss buns with a sprinkle of seaweed

Author Kyle Kozai ( ago)
I'm from Hawai and one thing. I can say is I understand the fact you don't like Taro. It's an item of food that takes getting used too. It's not really a potato more like the root and leaf and you grind it into a paste. Some people would let it ferment a bit and it would become sour which is a favorite of those who stick to traditional Hawaiian food. The pork buns here we call Manapuas. Basically charshu pork in a steamed or fried Chinese sweet bun. There aren't too bad but it just depends on where you get them honestly

Author JokeBG ( ago)
The firs bun you tried is one of the many traditional bulgarian buns and here it is called "Marusia" or "Маруся" in bulgarian. It is very interesting how two completely different cultures came up with the same idea :D.

Author Charles Tai ( ago)
Have you tried the cha chiu bun from Mei Lai Wah in chinatown? They made the best in NY, but that was 20 years ago when I used to go there. Would be a line outside just to buy them.

Author Maddi Holmes ( ago)
sesame mochi balls are the BEST

Author Late Fines ( ago)
My all time favourite bun is the coconut and cheese bun, which sounds terrible but tastes like heaven.

Author Nelson Roque ( ago)
you should come to Portugal you'll be amased about our food.

Author Margaret Gardner ( ago)
I would love to try a bunch of Chinese baked goods like that. I know their sweets are not as... sweet.... as American ones. funny story- I have several Chinese customers are the grocer I work for who buy our French vanilla twist brioche because they say it tastes just like a Chinese bun.

Author Fuzzy Gnar ( ago)
The sesame red bean bun is the BEST thing ever

Author Sol Be ( ago)
Toronto Chinatown needs to step up their game. Some of these are new to me and looks incredible!

Author Peace Thao ( ago)

Author Kevin Lau ( ago)
You forgot the coconut tart.

Author Yushan Cong ( ago)
my fave is the caterpillar bun i had in the local Holiland back home- its like a flat and really long eclair with criss-crossy stripes on it, and its filled with custard its awesome

Author kevi smith ( ago)
You have such a healthy appetite....marry me😂😂😂

Author Kirt Kirt ( ago)
my thoughts on all those hotdogs embedded in sweet buns are probably similar to how you feel about American Chinese food...
