How to eat Chinese baked goods

Today I have a lesson on eating Chinese baked goods. I know what you are thinking. Why do I need a lesson on eating? Don't I just find food and then stick it in my mouth?

But trust me on this one. You do not want to blindly stick a Chinese baked good in your mouth. Take this little breakfast pastry for example. He looks harmless enough. Flaky, buttery crust topped with a smattering of black and white sesame seeds. What could be so dangerous about this little guy?

Well, he just so happens to have a hot dog inside. I don't know about you, but I'm not a big fan of surprise sausage in my mouth. 

How exactly do you avoid finding random meat products in your baked goods? 

1) Inspect the baked good. Look for hints that a revolting piece of flesh is hiding inside. And don't be seduced by whipped cream or blueberries on top. This is just a distraction. I once bought a frosted donut only to discover a frankfurter hiding inside.

2) Rip that sucker in half. 

If you are unable to determine whether or not a hidden surprise is awaiting you inside that benign bagel, simply break that puppy open and have a look. It's the only guaranteed way to avoid a mouth full of meat with your danish. 

Unless of course you like a side of sirloin with your strudel. In that case, proceed as usual. But for the rest of us, give your croissant a second glance.
