That's the monster Pau on our 12-inch plate. Enough to feed two.

It has chicken, pork, turnip and some other ingredients inside.

A pau businessman probably came up with this idea of a big pau after a Cat 3 Hong Kong movies marathon. So at the end of the movie marathon, he probably felt hungry and while eating his normal-sized pau, he wished it was Amy Yip's "pau" he was holding. Eureka!! LOL!! So Yip Chi Mei Dai Pau was born.

Pasar Malam: Night Market found in Malaysia

Pau : Chinese Buns

Cat 3: Hong Kong movie rating system; Adults only.
