Look at that guys, there. That is the sticky rice flour, and we're laying it down over top of a cloth and putting delicious pork mixture on and egg and shrimp, and then steaming it. It's called bu lao chang because its on a cloth. There's a couple different ways you can make this changfan. One of them is in a metal tray, steamed, and this way is over top of a cloth, steamed. And it goes right in that bowl. Just covered in that oil and soy sauce. And this is the classic dish of Canton. Look at this. We've got that steamed rice flour, and look on the inside. We've got those shrimp, there's an egg, and then that pork mixture with that light soy sauce. Oh wow. And of course, I think in this one the real winner is this little bit of a spicy bean paste on top. There it is guys (laughs). Let's try it out. (slurps noodles) (groans in delight) Oh, that's fantastic isn't it? - [Nikki] Yeah, it's good with the egg. I just got the egg in there. - Wow.
