I was chatting with Babe at lunch one day about this absolutely yummy pao (I think it is called Wor Pao) that I use to have many years ago. My late dad buys them from a kopitiam somewhere near Sentul (I think) each time we make a trip to Genting Highlands. The pao is actually a hybrid pao as it has the usual chicken fillings (sang yoke) but topped with a steam cake. Since the development of Sentul area, the kopitiam does not exist anymore.
Babe told me that she has seen another type of hybrid pao where they have the loh mai kai fillings inside a pao. Wow, best of two worlds hor. Anyways, last weekend, as I was at Taman OUG in Old Klang Road getting a special type of dog food for the mutts at home, I passed by a kopitiam which has that pao steamer at the front of the shop. I saw something which almost resembled that sort of pao I was telling Babe. Asked the owner of the kopitiam the name of this pao. But she could only speak Mandarin and being the worse type of banana person, can only understand Cantonese. Could not make out what she said at all. It has char siew (bbq pork) fillings and she claims that the top bit is Malai Kou (which looks like normal steam cake to me). Anyway, got one to see if it tastes ok. Costs RM1.80 for one.
Verdict : Average only. This could be due to the very little char siew filling at the bottom. Ended up only with a mouthful of pao/flour. The original Wor Pao I had was brimming with fillings. So, the search continues for my elusive Wor Pao.
