Fun guo, or Chaozhou fun guo 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.

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.

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