- Mantou is a Chinese word which means steamed buns in English. This pinkish-red tortoise-shaped mantou is quite cute.
It has not much of a taste and it tastes just like white bread inside. The outside layer is bitter because there’s too much of red colouring used.
A bit of a disgusting fact : After eating, mind you, your urine will look reddish, so don’t be shocked thinking you’re bleeding when in fact it’s just the colouring. Not very healthy and I wouldn’t recommended to eat this everyday.
