The meaty bun is a staple in Japanese culture, but the buns are now made with pork belly instead of beef, and they are made with a more traditional bun.
There are two different versions of the bun: the traditional bun has pork belly, and the more modern bun uses ground pork.
They’re usually made with either fresh pork belly or pork buns made from the same pig carcass.
While both types of pork belly are delicious, the bakabunk bun is definitely the most popular, with Japanese restaurants catering to the masses catering to every taste.
