A giant BBQ pork humbow – is there a need to say more?
Okay, maybe just a little. I’m pretty sure that when I first moved to Seattle after college and ended up working at 3rd and Pine, one of my first lunches "out" involved BBQ pork humbow from Mee Sum Pastry in Pike Place Market. Reasonably priced, yet one alone is big enough for a lunch these delicious buns are now part of my "comfort food" definition.
Are they the most authentic humbow in town? I don’t know and I don’t really care. I love them. And yesterday’s gloomy, drizzly weather was perfect for picking one up, heading to Victor Steinbrueck Park during a dry spell, and enjoying every slightly sweet bite.
