Therese in Taiwan: Gua Bao 刮包

Since Taiwan is still on a Chinese New Year high, I have decided to dedicate this post to one of the dishes famous during this season - gua bao 刮包, or otherwise known as Taiwan hamburger (it's also known as Taiwanese pork belly buns). This is typically eaten on the lunar calendar's December 15, but it's also available up to the Chinese New Year, or maybe even later.

What is it? It's this white bun filled with mustard greens, pork belly, and topped with cilantro and crushed peanuts.

Yummy! You can buy the fillings separately, and then assemble it at home (like what we did), or you can also buy the ingredients and cook them yourself, or you can just buy one at gua bao stores (it costs 45NT ~PhP 65)

Happy Chinese New Year!
