Description #

Bun with a sweet crunchy top in a crosshatch pattern reminiscent of a pineapple. Sometimes there is a filling, but it’s almost never pineapple - more often custard or coconut.

Characters #

菠蘿 is pineapple, and is bun, so 菠蘿包 is pineapple bun.

Add to 菠蘿 and you get the word for jackfruit 菠蘿蜜 (bō lòh maht)
