Traditional Chinese潮州粉粿

Fun guo, or Chaozhou fun guo (潮州粉粿), sometimes spelled fun quor, fun gor, fen guo, Chiu Chow dumpling, Teochew dumpling, or fun kor, is a variety of steamed dumpling[1] from the Chaoshan area of coastal eastern Guangdong, a province in Southern China. Fun guo looks very similar to har gaw (shrimp dumplings) in Cantonese-style dim sum.[2]

Teochew cuisine[edit]

In the Chaozhou dialect of Min Nan, the dumplings are called hung gue (), but they are more widely known by their Cantonese name. They are also eaten in non-Chaozhou regions of Guangdong.

Hawaiian cuisine[edit]

In Hawaii, fun guo is known as pepeiao, the Hawaiian word for 'ear', named for its shape resembling an ear.[3][4]
