I tried the “Lurepuk Butter Bolo” during this visit. It had a unique taste, sweet yet slightly savory due to the generous amount of butter. If you’ve tasted a similar bread in Hong Kong, you might be able to compare the flavors. Unfortunately, I haven’t had the chance to try it in Hong Kong, but it’s something I’d consider if I visit there again.
