Emmy  of Youtube's  emmymadeinjapan   is actually Chinese ( but westernized and says she does not know Chinese ). So we know that she is Chinese by heritage, she doesn't speak the language as they only speak English in her home ( and I guess when she was growing up also ) but she knows how to speak Japanese since she lived there for a while ( hence the name of the Youtube channel since it was started when she still lived in Japan ).   She should probably join this group SMC.

The mystery cookie is called Kai Chai Paeng in Cantonese and  鸡仔饼  jīzǐ bǐng  in Mandarin and means Little Chicken Biscuits.  The reason Emmy tasted a cha siu bao ( barbecue pork filled bun [ baozi]) taste was because they are very often made with pork oil or small pork fat globs.  In this link the recipe substituted  "chicken seasoning (?)" for pork oil.      

They are "duck beat hoh may ( or hoh sik)" as they say in Cantonese ( exceptionally delicious).  My wife does not want me to eat any because of the Pork fat ( but they are too good to avoid ).
