April 12: Chinese Steamed Buns & Egg Tarts

 

Properly made, steamed buns are one of the the world’s great food. The airy house-made bun soft on your tongue, the the explosion of savory umami, the crunch-contrast of cucumber, carrot, and piquant sauce. And if you have a lightly-sweet custardy egg tart to finish, so much the better!

Tonight at Eterna: Barbecue pork buns or braised mushroom bao buns served with a Hong Kong style egg tart. $15
