Oh fuck dude she's got you learning humbow? SIGN ME UP

So there's a shop off Pike Place called Mee Sum Pastry. They make humbow unlike anyone else on the planet. I first had them in '90 when I came up to visit as a wee bairn and I immediately had like six.

They're damn near legendary. And they do what they wanna do.

I would argue that the goal is to make the RPS happy and the baked humbows at Mee Sum are about as far away from traditional Chinese cha siu bao as you can get. Do what works and iterate until you nail it.

by the bye, goat cheese not stinky cheese. The thing about an omelet is it's supposed to be light. It doesn't take much to overpower eggs. This is why you typically don't see anything more hardcore than gruyere. You also rarely see the good ones with more than two ingredients (prosciutto and goat cheese, asparagus and gruyere, carmelized onions and bacon). If you really wanna get decadent, go mouselline. And grab a cheap bottle of bubbly and some orange or grapefruit juice because somehow mimosas make people think they're the fucking queen or some shit.
