The classic Bo Lo Bao—also known as pineapple bun—is a popular old-school Hong Kong street snack that can be found across bakeries and cha chaan tengs in the Pearl of the Orient. Interestingly, these traditional pineapple buns have no traces of the fruit at all. The name was aptly bestowed to the palm-size snack due to its uncanny resemblance to the checkered fruit.
These sweet buns are crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside and typically served warm with a slab of butter in between.
In recent years, unique renditions of the classic Bo Lo Bao have emerged in Hong Kong. We are seeing flavours such as peanut butter and strawberry rose jam being injected into these buns, and even a hybrid between a croissant and Bo Lo Bao!
Don’t get us wrong; we still love the traditional pineapple buns—especially the ones from Kam Wah’s. But we are game for trying new things. Here are some unique Bo Lo Bao creations you must try in Hong Kong.

Let’s start with Singaporeans’ obsession with Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tarts. Additionally, we are also pretty damn sure you have had a Sapporo draught beer or a Miso Ramen. Well, here are 8 Types Of Hokkaido Food that you must try if you haven’t.
