Deep-Fried Chinese Bread

One of the simple pleasures of life is fresh bread. Usually we associate bread with European culinary traditions. Often overlooked are Asian breads.

If you'd like to try something a little different, you need to get over to JJ Chinese Seafood Restaurant on Alameda. I think most people stuff themselves silly before they realize that they can get a dessert here. It's actually on the appetizer portion of the menu, maybe that's where it should be, I'm not sure. All I know is that I always save room for an order of the Deep-fried Chinese bread.

Don't take this home, you need to eat it freshly made. It's steaming hot inside, beautifully shiny on the outside. It comes with a little bowl of condensed milk, yum! The first layer is soft and spongy, the center is a denser, yellow, braided core of dough.
With a nice pot of jasmine tea, this serves as a great dessert. One order is 3 buns split in half and should be enough for 4 people, as long as you're willing to share.
You are willing to share, right?

So the bread is stuffed with bread? Man. Is it also bread-breaded with a bread dip?

Whatever, it looks delicious. I've been meaning to get to this place forever...any other recs?
