Bento #72 Mantou

Posted by Journal Mommy Yenny at 10:56 AM
bento mantou
This is a lunch box for Luna, my girl.
Just recently I bought a pack of mantou. It is a Chinese steamed bun / bread. It usually available pre-cooked in frozen section of a supermarket. It can be steamed or deep-fried. The steamed bun is moist and can be eaten just like white bread. While the fried one is crisp, brownish and usually be eaten with sweetened condensed milk. I like both style :-D

This morning, I made the steamed mantou, cut the middle part -not thoroughly- thus filled each one with peanut butter and chocolate paste. On top of bun, was cheddar cheese in bear shape (my girl said, it was a mickey's head, which is alright with me *wide grin*). Some grape tomatoes were added in and also sliced dragon fruits.

Hope she will like it as this will be her first time to have mantou. But I am sure she will, for as long as she has choco and peanut butter, she will be just fine :-p

Simple and sweet. I wish we had dragon fruit readily available. Pretty!

Love the deep-fried version with sweet condensed milk, but have to eat it while is warm. Hope your girl love the mantou so you can put in her bento more often :)

I like it deep fried but I don't do that at home so only order when we eat out. They goes really well with chili crab sauce!

At home for bento I only steam them... hehhee
