As with many other food spots around the Metro, Cantonese restuarant Lucky Belly Noodle House is selling ready-to-cook meals amidst the pandemic and their animal-shaped buns are just one part of the menu. You can get these cute buns shaped like pigs, pandas, or porcupines. The pig-shaped buns (P260/12 pieces) are filled with a light, creamy custard while the panda-shaped buns (P330/15 pieces) contain a rich chocolate filling. The porcupine buns (P250/12 pieces), on the other hand, have a unique taro filling inside. You can also get mini, mushroom-shaped buns (P400/20 pieces) that are filled with chocolate if you prefer bite-sized portions for sharing. We can’t choose between all the cute designs!
