@Annoddah_Dave I didn't ask that. But a few of them are Federal workers so they get US Federal holidays off, and not Japanese holidays.

@vickie c it does take a bit of planning. I'd recommend you try email them or Facebook them to ask for directions, and while you do that you can make a reservation. I had to get to Urayasu station in Chiba, then you should take a taxi (show the website with Japanese address) to get there. It's not far from the station but you probably can't find it on your own if you're not Japanese.

4. I forgot to add that I did go to Manapua & More in my research but even when tasting it with others we found it "adequate." (remember, I tried like 10 places)

1. How the heck did you get so much meat in your Char Hung Sut manapua?

2. Are you sure you didn't mix it up with the Libby's one?

3. Air-filled pocket does not make a meat-to-bun ratio! Oh, wait, you're not Chinese.....nuff said

@harrycovair Noooo I can't do the Pillsbury anymore. I don't know if it's old age or exposure to better food, but I can smell the chemicals in the canister! I tried a canister recently and the chemical smell was out when baking, and of course I could taste it so I threw it away. :(

@MyongChoi ranking is subjective and that's ok. Especially with manapua! But please keep in mind that manapua shops are different from dim sum restaurants....that's a whole nother Top 5 list.
