 Three trucks are now offering crispy pineapple buns, also called bolo bao which are stuffed with cream and real pineapple for around US$2.58. The price is leading to some controversy however, as some believe it is too expensive. 
 
The two-year pilot scheme is aimed at showcasing Hong Kong’s unique cuisines and its high standard of food hygiene and safety, as well as helping bolster tourism.
 
Former financial secretary, John Tsang, who announced the food truck scheme in 2015, complained that the price of the pineapple bun is too high after trying it at the Tsim Sha Tsui Salisbury Garden on Saturday, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reports.
 
He said the food truck owner should lower the price to make the buns more affordable and popular. Still, people waited in line to buy the delicacy. The customers included locals and foreign tourists alike. Commerce Secretary, Gregory So, said public reaction to the food trucks has been good, judging from the number of people queuing up.
