Mandarin Chinese for steamed bread. Common in Northern China and Beijing-style cooking, mantou in its most common form is a palm-sized white "roll." The consistency is fairly soft, but dense and chewy. It's very mild in flavor, but surprisingly addictive. Great for rounding out a light meal, balancing off spicy food or settling an upset stomach.
