German-Chinese fusion may sound strange, but when pillowy pretzel buns meet bao, and mustard-slathered roasted pork meats char siu, it works. Chinese hot mustard, sesame paste, and honey make a flavor-packed change-up from the traditional char siu sauce, while a special Chinese bread-making trick makes the pretzel buns even more moist and tender. It's impossible not to love this Deutsch version of a Dim Sum classic.
