pineapple bun with butter

A pineapple bun is a kind of sweet pastry popular in Hong Kong, Macau, some other areas in southern China, and in Chinese communities in North America. They can also be found in bakeries in Taiwan. It is known in Cantonese as bo lo baau, in which "bo lo" means "pineapple", and "baau" refers to a kind of bun-like item in Chinese cuisine. It is commonly found in Chinese bakeries, and is mentioned quite frequently on TV, radio and films in Hong Kong.

 

菠蘿包,亦稱波羅包,是一種普遍的甜味麵包,源於香港。據說是原本稱為「俄羅斯包」。1960年代,因為菠蘿包經烘焙過後表面金黃色、凹凸的脆皮狀似菠蘿因而得名,所以菠蘿包實際上並沒有菠蘿的成分。菠蘿在台灣稱為鳳梨,亦即「有着鳳梨表皮的麵包」。
