    I am a displaced gal from Hawaii and now lives in Spokane, WA. My children and I visit HI and the first place we go to is the Manapua specialty places for pipiao dim sum. I have tried throughout the years in vain to search for a recipe without success. Anyone out there who can help me?

    I tried googling pipiao and nothing came up related to food- perhaps you can describe it and we might be able to find something similar.

    Pepeiao is the spelling. I wasn't able to find a recipe, but a couple of descriptions. Maybe someone would be willing to dig deeper.

    I knew it! I have seen it spelled, "peepeeau, peepiao, pipiao, etc. It is made wrapped in a won ton wrapper skin with ground pork, onions, water chestnuts, etc. It is steamed, but is not the ever popular pork hash sold in Hawaii which I have made. It is sold in China Town at Kin Wah and in Aiea at a Manapua shop that I know of. Help! Thank you for responding.

    Pepeaio is the name of a mushroom, I wonder if that's another ingredient, http://archives.starbulletin.com/2007/04/11/features/story02.html

    OMG, I just looked it up in the Star Bulletin and you are so right! That is so interesting! I tried clicking on Betty Shimabukuro's "By Request" but there was no info there. I cannot believe that recipe is so hard to come by. I have so much family in HI and no one can locate it. Thank you so much for your interest.

    Hi Lili,
    According with your description, they sound like something similar to Chinese Cantonese Siu Mai, Siomai, Dim Sum Dumplings or Potstickers, which are Chinese Street Foods, and here are these good recipes for you to check them out:

    I know someone who lived in HI a long time.. Here is her comment to your post: HIH:

    Manapua is a steamed bun (bao) which is made of a lightly sweetened dough formed around a filling of some sort - - usually char su pork or curry chicken, but they now make the okinawan sweet potato (the purple one), egg custard for a dessert one and a few other fillings... Other things sold at the manapua shops are pepiao (little ears), rice cake, pork hash, noodles and a few other dumplings - - I do have a couple of cookbooks that have some recipes - - give me a day or two to find the books and I will post them - - do you have a steamer??? If not, I can give you instructions on how to jerry-rig one....

    I am not real crazy about the pepiao - - they are made with a different dough - - I think it is rice flour - - it gets kind of translucent and is a bit slippery... It is a texture thing with me... But the filling is yummy... Each kind of filling has a different shape of dumpling... And with the manapua, the different flavors are distinguished with a food color dot or mark on the top of the dumpling....

    Yes, you got it!! The spelling is, "pepeiau" and the skin of it is a little different. You are an answer to the Smith's family dream. Can't wait to try it as soon as you find the recipe. I know it had onions, water chestnut and ground pork. I have been successful with making manapua and I do have a bamboo steamer which I love using. Thank you one and all!! icon_smile.gif)

    By the way, I found this other interesting info about "Manapau" and Pork wonton and "pepeiau" dumplings here it is:

    HAWAII FOOD TOURS -
    http://fearlessseattle.blogspot.com/2012/06/hawaii-food-tours-hole-in-wall-tour.html
    "Manapau is a Hawaiian breakfast food. It's the Hawaiian version the steamed pork bun. The fillings are a little bit different and the actual bun is a Hawaiian sweet bread.
    You can get the steamed version just like at Yum Cha but today we had the baked version. There is a multitude of fillings including traditional char sui, curry chicken, kahlua the traditional Hawaiian bbq pig and even portugese sausage.
    The bun is delicious, we tried the kahlua pig and the char sui. The char sui was the best by far. A fabulous way to start the day.

    CHINA TOWN -
    Honolulu's China town is basically an Asian melee, Korean, Philipino, Chinese, Vietnamese and even traditional Hawaiian shops. We ventured in on foot and surrounded ourselves with Asian food galore.

    RICE - PAPER FACTORY -
    This place is a bit of an institution, the only one of it's kind it Hawai'i. A factory that makes rice noodles by hand. We saw the huge steamers that are used to steam the rice flour and water mixture of trays. A group of women then roll them into slabs that are then flavoured with spring onion, pork and shrimp. Some a left plain and sliced into noodles.

    PORK WONTON AND "PEPEIAU" DUMPLINGS -
    For lack of a better name this was like a pork meatball topped with egg noodle. A form of Hawaiian yum cha. It's eaten with a hot sauce made of mustard and soy sauce. We ate these with Pepeiau dumplings, like Hawaiian gow gee, filled with pork, prawns and radish".

    YUM CHA - VIDEO & RECIPE -
    http://www.ifood.tv/recipe/fun-guo-from-yum-cha
    Hi everyone! Have you heard of Fun Guo before? It is a dim sum and similar to Ha Gao but the filling is different... it has pork, peanuts, mushrooms and other ingredients. This is really tasty and I always order it when I go to Yum Cha. I hope you will like it just as much as I do.

    HI, thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, the recipe wasn't there for me to follow for the pepeiau. I could just taste it though. Yummy!

    You are right, but the recipes that I posted above for Chinese Pork Dumplings are very similar to the description given for the Hawaiian Pork Wonton and "Pepeiau" Dumplings which the wontons are made with rice flour, according to that description, and they look transparent like the spring rolls.

    And here is a Hawaiian recipe:

    WONTONS FILLED WITH PORK, SHRIMP & WATER CHESTNUTS RECIPE -

    "If you want to "grind' the pork the authentic way, mince it with two rapidly. For the filling recipe, you will need about 60 won ton wrappers (buy these hon shimeiji or pepeiau (briefly cook the mushrooms by immersing them...

    MANAPUA COOKBOOK - DIM SUM APPETIZERS & LIGHT MEALS -

    (Go down the page to see the cookbook pages with the pictures and recipes posted there in very small printing - (because of the copyrights).

    "The Pork Hash are now 55 cents each, up just 10 cents from 2006. ... Guess what the first set of recipes are on? ... decent manapua, rice cake, half moon & pork hash (pepeiau – sp?) or chow funn over here. Mahalo – I will definitely pick up the cookbook. Also, we do not have decent saimin or won ton min".

I make won ton all the time and my "haole" neighbor who plows the snow for this widow just loves it with sweet sour sauce! icon_smile.gif) I will be trying the recipe that you have generously shared with me, so thank you very much!!
