A new proposal for a Tokyo-born meat bun that is palm-sized and colorful! “TOKYO PAO” Grand Opening in Yurakucho on Saturday, December 4, 2021

A meat bun brand born in Tokyo is now available!

Asian Table, which operates a Chinese restaurant "Dalian Gyoza Base DALIAN" in the suburbs of Tokyo, where you can enjoy authentic dishes such as handmade dumplings in a modern space, is a meat bun specialty store "TOKYO PAO" on Food Avenue on the first basement floor of Yurakucho Itoshia. Will open on Saturday, December 4, 2021.

Tokyo-born meat bun brand "TOKYO PAO"

A new sense of "petit rich" meat bun that is nice to receive, fun to eat

The colorful skin is filled with authentic flavored bean paste.

The characteristic of meat buns provided by "TOKYO PAO" is their size and colorfulness. The size is about 6 cm in diameter, which is smaller than a typical meat bun, and it is the size of a palm that is easy for women to eat with one hand. Not only the appearance but also the taste is colorful. Starting with the basic white meat bun based on pork, we offer a wide variety of fun with eight colors and flavors such as black (Chinese pepper), red (Ruro), and green (Deep-fried chicken with soy sauce).
It is a new style of meat bun that you can choose the number and taste combination according to your hunger and mood, such as light lunch and snacks. The inside is full of authentic flavored bean paste, and you can enjoy a small but slightly luxurious "petit rich" mood. In addition, meat buns that do not use garlic at all are easy to carry around and are recommended as souvenirs.

Female palm size

Not only cute, but carefully selected skin and full-fledged bean paste <br /> The development project of the new meat bun brand is Asian Table's roots in Taiwan, "I want to convey the deliciousness of meat buns" and "Enjoy more meat buns closer to you." I got up from the idea of "I want you to go out." Speaking of meat buns, we first focused on the skin where the bean paste attracted attention, and after more than half a year of trial and error, we realized a moist and chewy texture. For the bean paste to be packed inside, we carefully selected the ingredients and repeated trial production such as blending and cutting, and succeeded in developing a small but highly satisfying meat bun. In pursuit of surprise and enjoyment when eating, we colored the skin colorfully with vegetables and natural coloring agents, and adopted popular menus such as Chinese food for the bean paste wrapped inside. The recipe was adjusted to match the meat buns, and eight types of meat buns with a full-fledged taste were completed. We will continue to develop menus and provide new surprises.

There is a lot of bean paste inside

Sending a new world view of meat buns from Tokyo from Yurakucho <br /> The first "TOKYO PAO" store that opens in Yurakucho Itoshia has an atmosphere that makes it easy to stop by like a cafe. There is an eat-in space where you can enjoy hot steamed meat buns. As an item that can fill your stomach in a short time not only as a meal but also as a snack, or during shopping or while traveling, a new way to enjoy meat buns from the Ginza / Yurakucho area, which is also the origin of fashion and food in Tokyo. I will propose. You can purchase one takeout so that you can enjoy it easily. We will also prepare a gift box containing 4 pieces.
