Straight out-of-the-oven melon pan!!! Orgasmic! Well, pretty close. I have a certain 懐かしい feeling towards melon pan, as it is almost exactly the same as pan de huevo, a type of Mexican sweet bread that I grew up.
Unfortunately, the Happy Happy Melon Pan Truck only comes once every two or three months. I check the Happy-Happy website quite often and when I see that they’ll be in town, I’ll make excuses for having to go downtown just so that I can swing by and pickup a few hot melon pans. However, they tend to lose a bit of scrumptiousness once you get them home. Re-heating them in a microwave yields terrible results. But I found that three minutes in a toaster oven usually does the trick. Just be careful as any longer may burn the top part of the bread.
I’ve posted a picture of pan de huevo from a Mexican panderia in Southern California, because I don’t have any photos from Happy Happy. I won’t be able to make it downtown until Saturday, but I’ll post a photo of the real melon pan afterwards. If there’s any pan left.
