During our most recent trip to Costco I saw these BBQ Pork Buns and decided to give them a try! I’ve actually never had a pork bun so I was quite excited to see what they taste like.

Similar products from Costco are the Summ! Sesame Ginger Chicken Gyoza Dumplings, Synear Soup Dumplings, Summ! Crispy Vegetable Spring Rolls, Bibigo Beef Bulgogi Mandu and the Bibigo Chicken & Cilantro Wontons.

Location in Store

You can find these BBQ Pork Buns from Costco in the refrigerated deli section. I found them next to all the sausages. The item number is 5050888.

Taste

The dough is very soft and chewy and it doesn’t have a ton of flavor. There is way more dough than filling. The BBQ pork tastes a bit fatty in both taste and texture but it’s not bad!

The pork has a sweet BBQ flavor and even though the pork is a bit fatty and fat usually turns me off, I like these. The chewiness of the dough and the warmth of the pork inside are a tasty combination!

Convenience

The best before date on my bag of BBQ Pork Buns is only four days from the date I purchased them which is surprising! They need to be be kept refrigerated as well.

To heat the buns, place two on a plate and cover with a wet paper towel, microwave for 30 to 40 seconds. I did mine for 40 seconds which I feel like was the perfect time! These are great for an appetizer, lunch or snack.

Nothing on the ingredients list really shocks me. The pork buns contain sesame, shellfish, soy and wheat. Therefore gluten-free folks will have to skip these. They may contain egg, fish, crustacean, milk and mustard.
