Cardboard Chā Shāo Bāo Taste Great, Less Filling
In Beijing, police arrested a man who was cooking up Chā Shāo Bāo, roast pork buns, and selling them to the public. The reason behind the arrest was the mans recipe which consisted of chopped cardboard, softened with an industrial chemical and flavored with fatty pork and powdered seasoning.
“Most people can’t. It fools the average person,” the maker says. “I don’t eat them myself.”
State TV’s undercover investigation filmed the operation and the man “cooking” up the food. Police shut him down soon after, with a beating from Chen Kenichi to follow for disgracing Chinese cuisine.
