Hi Noriko and Yuko. When I was in Osaka my friend brought me to try a local delicacy, but wanted to keep it a surprise. Osaka was famous for it, he said. I was very excited to find out what it was.

Turned out to be a steamed chicken bun … Which is very common in Chinese cuisine and I could not taste the difference! I was surprised still though, that it had been accepted into Japanese cuisine.

Just like shumai!
