Food Dish of the Day

(Tian Jiao Zi, Sweet Dumpling)
Price: .60 RMB, .09 cents USD

I admit, I don't actually know the name of this one. They have them for breakfast at the dining hall, and I've found if I just say "sweet dumpling" and hold my hands up in a triangle, the worker is able to figure out what I want. These are steamed breads that are folded together with sugar in the middle, and they're really, really good. (And cheap!) They remind me a little bit of French toast, but only because when I was little, I used to sprinkle granulated sugar on top of my french toast, and there's granulated sugar in the middle of these that gives a similar crunch. 

Ingredients: dumpling bread, sugar


  1. Well, most Chinese people call it "sugar triangle", i.e. "糖三角" in Chinese.

  2. Oddly enough, that makes sense! Thanks. :)
