Nikuman or Butaman (Steamed pork buns) are sold at any covinience store in Japan. If you visit Chinatown at Yokohama, Kobe or Nagasaki there are many shops which claim to be the best, but if you ever had one from LU-GANG at Kamimachi, you would agree that they are best.

Lu-Gang is actually a name of a city in Taiwan. The owner/chef was a school teacher before opening Lu-Gang. He went to Taiwan for a class trip with his students and one of the tour guides suggested to try out a nikuman from a famous local shop. He was shocked to see people wait for hours to purchase one and also how good it was. Even though he was a school teacher, he always had a dream to open his own shop one day and thought that this was it. After 3 years of asking the owner to let him work there, he finally got his wish and did so for several years. He was given the secret recipe which was only passed on to the 1st son for several generations and still is the only who knows the recipe who isn't family.


鹿港 nikuman
Lu-Gang only sales 4 items. NIKUMAN (Steamed Pork Bun) for 140 yen.

What makes this special compared to others is not the pork filling it's the bun. There are really no words to describe this and you need to actually have it to know why its the best.

Other items are ANMAN (Steamed Sweet Red Bean Bun) for 120 yen,


鹿港 mantou
Mantou (Plain Steamed Bun) for 70 yen,

which has no filling and goes along great with other Chinese dishes with sauce,


鹿港 kokutou mantou
and finally KOKUTOU (Steamed Brown Sugar Bun) for 80 yen, which is just a bit sweeter than Mantou.


鹿港 box
Lu-Gang opens at 10am, but they usually sell out around 1pm on weekdays and even earlier on weekends. There is no space to eat, so you either eat on the street or take it back home and reheat it. I usually have one at the spot and enjoy the rest at home and I would suggest to others to do the same.
