Mayo BreadOrigin: Chinese Market
Type: Specialty Bread
Description: Bread with Mayonnaise filling
The best thing about going to the market a few minutes before they close is that everything in their bakery is 30% off. All the delicious breads, cakes, desserts, savory snacks, everything is at reduced price. It was the first time that I'd seen this particular bread. It looked good so I grabbed it along with other bread things that I'll probably cover later.
The top of the bread is covered in this powdery meat product. It reminds me of that shredded beef jerky you can buy in those little plastic containers that look like chewing tobacco. The texture and the taste was just like that! It's dry, salty and kind of gross. The bread itself was little more sweet, until you get to the center.
Inside the bread is the mayo filling. It's salty, greasy, not all that good. It has a unique flavor that I can't quite place and the texture is more like butter than mayonnaise. The individual parts of this bread thing are gross separately but if you take a big bite of all of the ingredients together, it's not bad. The sweetness of the bread meshes nicely with the saltiness and textures of the mayo and meat product. If you're an adventurous eater, it's worth a try.
