Unusual Steam Bun Found in Tokyo

Posted by Sadao Sasaki on

Steam buns or Nikuman are a popular winter snack in Japan.  The warm white buns with different ingredients are usually found at convenience stores.  People do not expect anything beyond the standard shape, size and color of this ubiquitous food, but Simon and Martina were delighted with a pleasant surprise - a chicken steam bun. It's not the chicken used as an ingredient that the video hosts are enchanted with, but how the bun looks like chicken as a cartoon character.
