28 A Love Affair With Giant Curry Buns

It's pillowy and everything nice. I am 'Bread-Hugger' , in case anyone asks what my superhero name is. That's right, I have an immense craving for hugging large breads. I only stop myself because nobody will eat it if I did. 

"Sharon, why is my bread so ... out-of-shape? "  Don't ask.

My infatuation with giant buns began in 2013. It was love at first sight, then at first bite at Restoran Tin Hoe Hweeh (KL).  I blogged about it here. Whilst I have a desire to hug large buns in general, my eating preference lean towards those with a curry filling or anything savory.

Fast forward several buns later, Hubs and I drove all the way to Port Dickson to try the famous Lucky King Bun. I wrote about the experience on my cooking blog . When I heard that they had opened a branch in Seremban, I was ecstatic because it was closer to home.

A road trip was planned and here we were! Hubs, MIL and I made ourselves comfortable in the spanking new air-conditioned restaurant last week. We had wanted to order the one with Dongpo pork, but was informed that this special bun would only be ready at 2PM that day. That's two hours waiting time! It was disappointing to hear because MIL doesn't take spicy food. One giant chicken curry bun and a plate of non-spicy fried rice was ordered in the end.

The curry bun arrived on our table freshly cut open. How pretty it looked, like a big blooming flower. We gave MIL a taste. It was so delicious that she asked for a second serving. So much for not taking spicy food!

Rich yummy curry!
The restaurant has a cosy interior.

Although this new restaurant is cool and comfortable, I couldn't help but miss the homeyness I felt when I bought this in Lukut. It was a typical old style restaurant with plastic chairs and an open concept. You get the full blast of Malaysian weather. 

Here's a bit of how it all started for Lucky King Bun.

The History

The bun is just a little larger than the size of my head.

That's about it on my latest makan (eat) hunt. I had initially wanted to title this post 'Giant Buns' but didn't want anyone to get the wrong idea!
