The packaging

Lamyong is a Sydney based Asian food company the specialises in vegetarian and vegan products. Their products can be found at any Asian store in with the Kim Wang Asian Grocery in Chinatown having the biggest range. The products are stamped with a vegan registered symbol but there are a few items that are not vegan so keep an eye out.So I picked up a pack of the mushroom vegetable buns at an Asian supermarket in the northern suburbs and I couldn’t wait to try them. I’m a big fan of steamed buns. Microwave for 2 to 3 minutes in a sandwich bag or container and your ready.

The bun (frozen)

Firstly can someone tell me what the point of the bits of paper stuck onto the bottom is? (Okay I know it’s to stop the bun sticking to the steamer), when microwaved it just sticks to the bun and you lose some of the bottom trying to get it off.

The filling

Texture: Not bad. The dough was fluffy and the filling was all right but not perfect: too much cabbage. 4/5

Flavour: Not too bad. It had an okay mushroom flavour, mostly shiitake, but the primary flavour was unfortunate pepper. 2.5/5

Overall: Not a bad effort but could have been better. 3/5
